I guess they weren't just that many solo female albums that were talked about, especially in the second half of the decade. Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Adele were popular enough, Fiona Apple had one acclaimed and Lana Del Rey had a resurgence in 2019 but what else is worth checking out?

Not to be blunt, but female solo albums dominated the second half of the 2010s Laughing

Particularly 2017-2019. Check out our charts. There's plenty of recs on there. See what you think Smile

These are particularly strong/popular:


Be The Cowboy by Mitski


El Mal Querer by Rosalía


All Mirrors by Angel Olsen


Dirty Computer by Janelle Monáe


Melodrama by Lorde


The Kid by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
