I've never known so many big name female artists release albums all around the same time

This later this year we are getting releases from

Lady Gaga
Beyoncé
Britney
Rihanna
Katy Perry


We are also due releases from Kylie and Mariah but I'm not sure where they fit in these days. So left them off the main list.

Its going to be very interesting seeing who comes out on top. They run the risk of cancelling each other out.

I'm most looking forward to Gaga, Beyoncé and Britney's. Britney's sounds very interesting and I'm actually really excited for once about a new album from her!

Gaga's is gonna be a really interesting record, I think - but I am seriously looking forward to hearing what Britney's stuff with William Orbit is gonna sound like cos I really like him as a producer.

They are only rumoured to be releasing close together, nothing has actually been confirmed

I think the only albums we are getting among those are likely to be Artpop and the yearly Rihanna album

I didn't know he was working with Britney. Do you know if he is doing the majority of the album or just a couple of songs.

I think Britney will release hers in March, like she did with Femme Fatale. That album was actually almost done before her label decided to scrap half of it.

Depending on the quality of material Gaga may burn out quickly like with BTW leaving room or the others. You have to remember she isn't going into this like with BTW the hype isn't there so much and people are a bit weary of her after the whole ''album of the year'' drop in quality fiasco of BTW.

KP of she palys it like Td with stronger material she can easily succeed peopla palm her off but i'd say she's the dark horse.

Britney again depends on quality and lead single could go either way.

Beyonce is beyonce will do well but dobt she will ever top IASF in terms of sales and impact.

Rihanna does what Rihanna does whihc is sell by the bucket load tour and remains an ever constant

In order of most excited for:
1. Beyonce
2. Rihanna
3. Gaga
4. (Nicki Minaj if she counts )
5. Britney
6. Katy
7. Mariah

I hope Bey's album meets the hype. I hope Rih's album will be a lot darker, idk who she's working with this year but she posted a lot of Rated R photos the other day on Instagram so I'm hoping it'll be in that style. I hope Nicki Minaj and Britney's will avoid club/dance songs.

Kylie's last studio album Aphrodite sold 320'000 copies in the UK, so I'm not quite sure why you've left her of the list. To put things in perspective Kylie's last set sold more in the UK than Jlo/Cheryl Cole's/Madonna's/Britney's Mariah's last studio albums in the UK.

None of these releases are 100% confirmed, though. Obviously, ARTPOP and Beyonce's albums should be ready by now, but there's no confirmed release date for either of these albums.

Anyway, supposing that all of these artists actually release new music before the year ends, I think Katy Perry will slay everybody and establish her position in the industry, although I'm not a big fan. Rihanna will obviously be massive once again and have a huge lead single, but if she wants to fully compete in terms of album sales, she'll need a proper era, like 'Loud'.

Except for these two, I don't think the other "divas" will have surefire success. GaGa and Britney will have an EXTREMELY hard time fitting in. The songs that are currently smashing in the US are 'Blurred Lines', 'Get Lucky' and 'Radioactive'. The only dance pop song that is doing a bit well is 'The Other Side', but I wouldn't call it a smash hit. That being said, Zedd is about to get a hit with 'Clarity' and iirc he's worked with GaGa, so maybe she will make it.

Beyonce and Mariah have the same problem. They took a long break and now the industry has kind of left them behind. They will always sell decent amount of albums, but they both have trouble getting hit singles. The confusion behind Beyonce's lead single is particularly alarming. We all thought she would premiere it at the Superbowl, 5 months ago! Still no news, just random demos and live performances. Her label is obviously looking for a smash hit and so is Mariah's and judging by the silence of both camps, they haven't found it yet.

Kylie will have a good era though, or at least a very interesting one. I hope she finally cracks the US, although with electropop starting to fizzle out, I think it will be difficult.

Britney doesn't have the stage presence to carry through an album era successfully - even if the music is strong she won't be able to physically endure a world tour / promotional campaign and connect with her audiences so i'm sensing another Femme Fatale here but with possibly better music.

Dont know what Beyonces trying to do? At first I thought she was trying to familiarize everyone with the new music by licensing it to various different ad's but her buzz has definitely declined.

Gaga's sound has probably thrown in jeopardy behind the scenes because of the musical landscape changing - can see her getting a HUGE push at the start with all the hype but that fading into not much and a short campaign.

Rihanna is starting to tarnish her reputation by believing her own hype and constantly posting nudes on instagram - can see her first week sales plummeting with the next album.

Im hedging my bets on Katy, universal appeal - stunning girl, adaptable sound and a solid pop songwriter plus the public like her and she has a solid fanbase, can definitely see her doing big things again.

I like Beyonce, but the previewed songs have done nothing for me...so, I'm not really looking forward to her album.

I'm expecting a Teenage Dream 2.0 from Katy. Probably some jams, but nothing to write home about.

Britney has me intrigued because she could have a stellar album on her hands, but I doubt it'll do particularly well if it's exclusively electro and she continues to put in minimal effort. However, Will.I.Am's involvement leaves much to be desired and William Orbit didn't wow me with MDNA, so.

Anticipating the same old from Rihanna - smash lead single and a whothef*ckcares era. After TTT and Unapologetic, they really should try and present a proper album campaign with longevity.

Lady Gaga has me most excited. I like the sound of where she's going with ARTPOP and It'll be interesting to see how she deals with the campaign after BTW. Zedd has confirmed that Gaga isn't making an "EDM" album (although there is "EDM" on it) so being supposedly "off trend" isn't a concern.

I think Gaga, Beyonce and Katy will make their comebacks at the VMAs.

In terms of who will come out on top...I'd wager Katy will have the most #1s, Gaga will sell the most albums and Beyonce will win the most Grammys. Pretty standard stuff.

Yeah I suppose I should have put a question mark over them but I assumed most are on track for a fall release.

I'm most excited for Britney, no one else matters when the queen releases, this album is shaping up to be her most experimental, creative and personal to date, the vibe I'm getting is a more modern sounding hip/hop electro version of Blackout, maybe reminiscent of Madonna's Confessions fused with her own In The Zone.

I don't reckon Rihanna will do another album this year. As much as I love her I think she needs a year out.

I hope so much Artpop is released this year. I am very sceptical due to lack of news but still... I live in hope
