Britney Named One Of Most Popular Artists on Yahoo Music
As 2016 comes to an end, Yahoo has unveiled our Year in Review, a detailed look at what captured the hearts and minds of our users across the globe this year, drawing from billions of searches on Yahoo, Polyvore, Tumblr, and Flickr. We've been doing Year in Review for 15 years, and each report gives us an incredibly introspective look at what people, issues, and trends were top of mind for the one billion and counting visitors across the Yahoo platforms.
Britney comes in at number 4 (excuse me... 2 and 3 are bullshit. Of course they gave Beyoncé number 1 but I don't see her performing at the billboard awards, iheart, Apple Music festival, or any of the Jingle fests!)
4. Britney Spears
While continuing to keep busy with her ongoing Las Vegas residency show, Britney Spears excited fans early in 2016 with the news she was working on her ninth studio album — her first in three years. While everyone waited for the music, in May, she executed an eye-catching medley of her past hits for the Billboard Music Awards (as well as accepted the prestigious Billboard Millennium Award, an honor bestowed on only two other artists to date). It was rumored she was going to unveil her new single then; however, she waited until July to release "Make Me" f/G Eazy. Her full-length, 'Glory,' arrived the following month, dropping just after her much-publicized triumphant return to the MTV Video Music Awards — a stage she hadn't performed on since 2007, when her infamous "Gimme More" left viewers wanting less. By the end of the year, Spears was reportedly working on yet another album (details hazy at this point).
