3. Rihanna (Last Year: 1)Rihanna was certainly on the scene for 2011. Aside from making great music, she was everywhere with rumored dates with Usher up to some news that she is burnt out of her work. Never mind all of that as she can still rock our world. "We Found Love" was one of her best pieces in 2011.
4. Beyonce (Last Year: 6)The biggest and happiest year for Beyonce was 2011 as she announced to the whole world that she and Jay-Z are having a baby.

Beyonce also did astound us with her powerful ballads "1+1" and "Best Thing I Never Had".
5. Jennifer Lopez (New Entry)J.Lo is definitely back. After a failed contract deal in 2010, she made herself felt once more signing up as a judge in the American Idol together with Steven Tyler. A lot of controversies from the start but she has proven to be a good addition to the show. AS for her music, she just played it hot with "On The Floor", "I'm Into You" and "Papi".
6. Jessie J (New Entry)I first heard of Jessie J on the soundtrack of Step Up 3 where she belted the ballad "Who You Are". But it wasn't until she released her upbeat "Price Tag" that she rose to the radars of every people in the world. Truly one of the best voices I have ever heard.
7. Lady Gaga (Last Year: 2)Gaga's 2011 may have not been as hot as her 2010 but still she continued to challenge the music norms in terms of fashion and video making.
