My Favorite Artists in the World

Hi sweeties! Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic (a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) is all about audio freebie.

Who are YOUR fave artists? 
Anyone I should know about?
Share with me YOUR ttts in the comments!


  1. Great list Veronika! I like quite a few of these artists!

  2. I don't do audio books either. Love the list of favorite artist.

  3. I like a lot of these artists as well. Especially Imagine Dragons & Taylor Swift though. :) Thanks for sharing.
    Here's my TTT

  4. Troye will always be one of my favourite artists! I used to watch him do covers on YouTube and to see him now is just so incredible. I think he's so unique!

    1. Aww, you're so lucky to have discovered him that early in his career, I've only started to listen to him a few months back, but as you can see he's already one of my all time faves. :)

  5. Lindsey Stirling is amazing! I definitely agree with that. And I'm so glad to see Little Mix on your list as well. I've never heard of Tove Lo I think. At least the name doesn't ring a bell. I'll have to look up the music right now!

    1. I saw Lindsey live once and she absolutely killed it. *.* The Little Mix girls give me such girl power feels - I LOVE them. Tove Lo is super-unique (I think), so you should totally look her up. :)

  6. Love Melanie Martinez! My favorite songs are Soap, Tag You're It, and Pacify Her. Great Top Ten! :D My Top Ten Tuesday!

    1. Aww, she's so unique and awesome - I literally love all her songs! Thanks. :)

  7. I had forgotten about Melanie Martinez from The Voice! I need to listen to some of her stuff. She was always great on that show. And I totally agree with your T. Swift pick! ;) Thanks for stopping by My TTT.

    1. You should totally check her out! She grew SO MUCH as an artist, imo. :))

  8. I have to admit, reading your list made me feel incredibly out of touch! LOL I only know 3 or 4 out of the 12 you shared: Taylor Swift (of course), Imagine Dragons (I like them), Tove Lo (I know one song), and Ellie Goulding (I know one song). Everyone else I have no idea about. Actually I've heard people mention Halsey but I've never heard her music or even know what kind of music she does. I do know several of your honorable mentions, though! :)

    1. Oh haha, I have quite a few no that well-known artists on my list, so don't feel too bad. :) You totally should give a chance to a few of these, because most of them are truly unique - esp. Halsey, Troye and Melanie. :)

  9. If you like Tove Lo, Troye Sivan and Halsey, I really recommend Broods. They're a duo from New Zealand and their songs are SOOO good. And they also have a similar vibe from those artists. I think you'll really enjoy them!

    1. I LOVE some of the Broods stuff - Free is one of my all time fave songs. The only reason they didn't make it onto my list is that I'm relatively new to their music and still need to check out most of their songs. Thanks for the rec, anyway :D

  10. I love Taylor Swift!
