2014: The Top 10

Well, what a year that was! 2014 is officially through and we are now celebrating 2015. Happy New Year everybody!

It’s time for me to post my Top 10 most played songs of 2014, along with the Top 10 artists and albums that have kept me going throughout 2014.

Let’s start with artists. It’s been a year of divas. We have seen the rise and rise of new stars such as Iggy Azalea, Ella Henderson and Ariana Grande who continue to dominate the charts worldwide. Kylie Minogue and Beyoncé have released new albums that have spawned numerous videos throughout the year. Coldplay released what I would call their best album yet and we also saw the return of Ed Sheeran and Jessie J with fantastic albums. Sam Smith was probably the breakout artist of the year and continues to dominate both the UK and US.

So, my Top 10 most played artists are as follows…

10) Dannii Minogue (511 plays)
