Think You Can Name Every Pop Star On This Test?

Music has become such a pervasive, core element of culture that it less exists as a hobby and now more as an inevitable part of your life. No longer is the question based around whether someone 'likes' music, but more so what types they listen to and how they consume it. And the industry shows no signs of slowing down, with new pop music stars, styles and platforms constantly emerging. Even a new revenue stream has built up over the past decade or so, as digital profits have joined album sales, merchandising and ticket revenue for live shows as viable money-making components of the business. Like it or not, pop music is here to stay.

Of course, the entire industry rests upon the backbone of the global superstar talents whose music dominates pop culture. For all of the changes that the industry has undergone over time, the universal truth that remains is that stars sell and there will always be an appetite for dynamic, charismatic performers who can sing, write and produce great music. The enduring nature of the music superstar is, perhaps, best exemplified by the many legends who have sustained decades-long fame and adulation among fans, continuing to tour and produce music past the age of retirement and even with a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame enshrinement already behind them.

Now, the question is whether you can identify them or not. In this quiz, you will find 50 of the most famous pop music artists on the planet - both contemporary stars and legendary icons. So put your music know-how to the test and see if you are familiar with the faces of the people behind some of the biggest hits in pop history.

Just 33 years of age, he has already won 11 Grammy Awards, including "Album of the Year" for 2018's 24K Magic. This early success has propelled him as one of the biggest pop stars and best touring acts in the world. What's his name?

Question 3

Who is this pop superstar?

This powerhouse singer got her first big break when she was just 15 with a starring role in the Broadway musical, "13". That production helped her launch a small screen journey, making her name on the Nickelodeon series "Victorious" and "Sam and Cat". Once her music portfolio got going, however, there was no looking back, although her fans still wear cat ears to her shows as a tribute to her time on the small screen. Currently the most followed woman on social media, she has now released five successful albums, won a Grammy and been named Billboard's "Woman of the Year" in 2018.

Question 4

Who is this pop superstar?

Sure, every pop star has their fans, but it's not easy finding a more loyal, fervent group of followers than this R&B mega-star has enjoyed. Having started out as a member of the female super-group Destiny's Child, her big-screen turn in the 2002 Austin Powers sequel hinted at potential solo success. But then the release of solo album "Dangerously in Love" in 2003 blew all expectations out of the water, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts and winning five Grammys. In the years since, she has risen to icon status alongside husband and rap superstar Jay-Z.

Question 5

Who is this pop superstar?

In her relatively short time as a mainstream pop star, fans have gotten the chance to see plenty of growth and maturation in this singer/songwriter. For one thing, there's the dollar sign that she dropped from her stage name. More significantly, however, this LA-born artist has moved away from wacky and often times raunchy stage antics to grow into a more serious performer. That's not to say she doesn't still have fun, but this growth did allow her to release her emotionally complex album, "Rainbow", in 2017. Perhaps now the singer best known for catchy hits like "Tik Tok" and "Blah Blah Blah" will be getting more meaningful.

Question 6

Who is this pop superstar?

In the late 1990s, it would have been easy to assume that this heartthrob was at the peak of his stardom. After all, he was the lead singer of NSYNC, which was one of the best boy bands in the world at the time. Just after the turn of the century, however, the charismatic singer and dancer launched a solo journey that would take him to even greater heights.

That hasn't diminished, as hit songs like "Before He Cheats" have made her one of the most widely recognizable country stars on the planet. Just 36, she has already been inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.

Question 8

Who is this pop superstar?

For this late singer, none of the quiz options would have been accurate between 1993 and 2000, during which time his identity was represented by an inaudible symbol. Indeed, the Minnesota-born musician always carried something of an eccentric aura to him. His music proved equally difficult to define as his persona, boasting a versatile canon that dabbled in funk, R&B, rock and pop and complimented a unique, mystical stage presence. One universal truth when it comes to the artist, however, is his popularity, which helped make him one of the best-selling musicians of all-time. In the aftermath of his 2016 passing, hit songs like "Purple Rain" and "When Doves Cry" returned to the top of the charts for a new generation of music lovers.

Question 9

Who is this pop superstar?

This ginger-haired Brit doesn't exactly look the part of a pop superstar, but that's simply a part of his charm.

On the strength of a stint on the VH1 reality series "Love & Hip Hop: New York", the Bronx-born singer burst onto the scene with the single, "Bodak Yellow". From there, her 2018 debut album "Invasion of Privacy" won a Grammy for Best Rap Album, making her the first and only female to win the award as a solo artist.

Question 11

Who is this pop superstar?

You don't get the nickname of "The King" by being second best, and so this legendary rock & roll icon clearly occupies a rarefied air in the pop music canon. Even though he passed away more than 40 years ago, his legacy lives on as one of the pioneers of pop music, responsible for defining the genre of rock music and aligning it with an entire generation of young fans won over by his hip-swiveling and charismatic persona.

Question 12

For a long time, the notion of a Caucasian rapper was regarded as something of a joke, to be quite honest.

Thanks to his breakthrough 2015 release, "Beauty Behind the Madness", he became the first artist to simultaneously hold the top three positions on the Billboard R&B Songs chart.

Question 17

Who is this pop superstar?

Given the turbulent nature of this "Baby" singer's life and journey since breaking through in 2010, it's hard to believe he's still just 25 years of age.

More recently, he married model Hayley Baldwin and began work on a fourth studio album.

She came by her world class vocal talent honestly, raised into a family that included mother and gospel singer Cissy Houston, cousin Dionne Warwick and godmother Aretha Franklin. Those gifts helped her become an artist that the Guinness Book of World Records recognizes as the most awarded of all-time. While she is the only female artist to ever have seven consecutive singles go to No. 1 on the Billboard 100 charts, she is probably best known for her hit "I Will Always Love You" on the soundtrack to "The Bodyguard", which became the best-selling single by a woman in music history.

And having released an album in six of the past seven years, you will probably continue to hear from him.

Question 24

Who is this pop superstar?

This unconventional pop sensation has generated an international following, even if few would be able to recognize her in a crowd. That's because this talented vocalist has maintained a mysterious aura by largely hiding her face from public view behind eccentric outfits - even during her live concerts.

His solo journey has since brought its own stardom, thanks to No. 1 hits like "All of Me" and his achievement of an 'EGOT', winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award. While he might sometimes be upstaged by his outspoken wife, model Chrissy Teigen, this artist has put together an awfully impressive portfolio in his own right.

Question 27

Who is this pop superstar?

The electro-dance duo Disclosure had a breakthrough hit on their hands when they released "Latch" in October of 2012, but soon all anyone could talk about were the mesmerizing vocals of their guest collaborator.

Since then, he's won four Grammy's, including the 2015 Best New Artist award and Record of the Year for "Stay With Me", and even wrote an Oscar-winning theme song for the Bond film, "Spectre".

Outside of music, he has founded a design company and delved into acting, most notably as part of the "Hunger Games" movie series.

Question 30

Who is this pop superstar?

While some may mock her for producing sappy, melodramatic ballads, there's no denying the impressive legacy of this powerhouse vocalist. The Quebec-born singer was a hit machine through the 1990's, producing a steady string of No. 1 singles like "Because You Loved Me" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now". Over that time, she won five Grammys and released two diamond-certified albums, "Falling Into You" and "Let's Talk About Love". She is probably best remembered for "My Heart Will Go On", the critically acclaimed but publicly derided theme of the 1997 epic, "Titanic". Following several Vegas residencies, she recently announced a new tour and her first English-language album since 2013.

Question 31

On the music front, she has released a pair of No. 1 albums, "Stars Dance" and "Revival", and now boasts seven top 10 entries into the Billboard 100 charts.

His 1997 Princess Diana tribute, "Candle in the Wind", remains the highest-selling single of all-time in the US and UK. Now 72, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer has announced his forthcoming retirement and embarked on a three-year farewell tour.

Question 36

Who is this pop superstar?

Given the historic success that this heartthrob musician enjoyed in his teens, you have to wonder what his twenties will bring. A star born through the power of social media, he rode a string of viral covers to a No. 1 album ("Handwritten") before his 17th birthday. In just four years, he had released three albums and gone from touring small venues in his home country of Canada to global arena tours. The singer/guitarist behind hit songs like "Treat You Better" and "Stitches" has also fared well outside of the music industry, signing an endorsement deal with Armani and becoming a Calvin Klein model.

Question 37

Who is this pop superstar?

From there, the “Super Bass” singer spent little time in racking up achievements, earning 10 Grammy nominations, a voice role in the animated film “Ice Age: Continental Drift” and a spot on the 2016 Time 100 list of most influential people. Apart from being a talented lyricist, the Trinidadian artist is best known for both her colourful outfits and stage persona.

Question 38

Who is this pop superstar?

A relative newcomer to the pop music scene, this tattoo-adorned rapper released debut single “White Iverson” just four years ago. Since then, he’s earned a steady following on account of his unique genre blending and deep, introspective songwriting.

He has already amassed six top ten tracks on the Billboard 100, including chart-toppers “Rockstar”, “Psycho” and “Sunflower”.

Question 39

Who is this pop superstar?

This modern pop icon stands as a model example of how to initiate a rise to stardom in the musician industry.

She has charted a path from unassuming country girl to global megastar, all the while maintaining a likable, underdog persona even against the backdrop of her chart-topping domination. The "Shake It Off" singer is still only in her twenties, but she already stands as a major influence to an entire generation of young girls.

Question 40

Who is this pop superstar?

From his 2001 breakthrough at age 24, this singer and guitarist has grown up before our very eyes, evolving from some sensitive, acoustic songwriter beginnings to a charismatic and versatile performer. Although his musical output has slowed in recent years, he still boasts an impressive seven commercially successful albums to go along with seven Grammy Awards. While his gravely singing voice is instantly distinguishable, that hasn't prevented him from incorporating hip-hop, country and psychedelic rock influences into his work. Away from music, the "Your Body is a Wonderland" singer is best known for a notable string of female companions that has included Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, Minka Kelly, Katy Perry and possibly Taylor Swift.

Since that fateful meeting, she has made history by selling more than 250 million albums, earning nine Grammy Awards and releasing 14 No. 1 singles. Her musical talents have also shown the versatility to handle dance-heavy tracks like "Pon De Replay" and softer, deeper songs like "Stay".

Question 42

Who is this pop superstar?

Superstars will continue to emerge for as long as the music industry exists, but there will never be another 'King of Pop'. For all the great music this late megastar created, his legacy a decade after his passing remains divisive and contradictory. On one hand, he still reigns as one of the preeminent pop culture figures of the 20th century and arguably the greatest entertainer of all-time, but he's also the highly unorthodox, controversial figure who was constantly the subject of tabloid scrutiny. What he leaves behind, however, is an endless canon of classic pop hits, anchored by his "Thriller" album, which remains the best-selling record of all-time.

Question 43

Who is this pop superstar?

Upon breaking through to stardom in the early 2000’s amidst a wave of provocative young pop starlets, this powerful songstress made no bones about distinguishing herself from her peers. Relying on her talent rather than image or marketing, she has stood out as a lyricist who puts substance behind her music. It’s part of the reason why, as other artists from that era endure ups and downs, the “Get This Party Started” singer has remained a constant who only steps away from her music to spend time with her family. Now, she stands as the rare pop princess whose music has aged incredibly well over the past two decades.

Question 44

Who is this pop superstar?

The breakup of famed boy band One Direction in 2016 was crushing to their massive fan base. However, out of what they termed an “indefinite hiatus” has come a few burgeoning solo journeys. Niall Horan and Zayn Malik, who had left the group prior to their dissolution, have enjoyed their own considerable success in recent years. But the clear breakout headliner in the aftermath of the split has been this heartthrob. His debut single, “Sign of the Times”, raced to the top of the charts in seven countries upon its release in 2017 and was named Rolling Stones’ Single of the Year. He has also set the course for a potential big-screen journey with a role in Christopher Nolan’s war epic, “Dunkirk”.

Question 45

Who is this pop superstar?

Language and cultural barriers can often make it difficult to thrive across different global markets, but this Colombian pop diva has enjoyed transcendent, cross-border success. She initially rose up the Latin music charts and made four Spanish albums before diving into an English language crossover. It was then, however, that she became a global star on the strength of his singles like "Whenever, Wherever" and "Underneath Your Clothes". That stardom was cemented with the release of her 2010 World Cup theme "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", which became one of the most viewed music videos in the history of YouTube.

Question 46

Who is this pop superstar?

This Motown legend has spent nearly 60 years in the music industry, a lengthy, decorated journey that began as an 11-year-old prodigy and continues on today as he nears his 70th birthday. Over that time, the blind multi-instrumentalist has recorded 30 top 10 songs and has won 25 Grammy Awards, making him one of the most-awarded male solo artists. Outside of the studio, the "I Just Called to Say I Love You" singer is known for his social activism, including a 1980 campaign to make Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a national holiday. As a result, he was named a UN Messenger of Peace in 2009.

Question 47

Who is this pop superstar?

Even in a music genre that has included the likes of Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire and Patsy Cline, it is this female icon who has been called the “Queen of Country Pop”. It helps, of course, to be recognized as the best-selling female country artist in history, thanks to five studio albums, three of which became diamond-certified. In fact, 1997's "Come On Over" became the best-selling album by a female artist in any genre. The five-time Grammy winner won over a legion of fans for her versatile vocals, shining equally on soft ballads like "From This Moment On" and fun, energetic tracks like "Man, I Feel Like a Woman".

Question 48

Who is this pop superstar?

For many years, this prolific producer was somewhat of a background figure in the music industry. While he had his own modest success as part of bands like The Neptunes and N*E*R*D, his best known work was mostly created for countless other artists, such as Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Nelly, Justin Timberlake and Daft Punk. That all changed in 2014 with his own release of the smash hit single “Happy”, an upbeat track that took over pop music and won him two of his 12 Grammys along with an Oscar nomination. While he continues to produce music for himself and other artists, he is far less anonymous than he ever used to be, a fact supported by his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Who is this pop superstar?

At an age when most kids were beginning high school, this classically trained pianist was signing her first record deal. This female prodigy found instant success with her debut album, “Songs in A Minor”, selling 12 million albums and earning her first No. 1 single with “Fallin’”. She has since solidified that debut with 15 Grammy Awards, two years on Time magazine’s 100 most influential people list and recognition from Billboard as the top R&B artist of the 2000’s. She has been responsible for four No. 1 singles on the Billboard 100 charts, along with a slew of successful collaborations involving the likes of Usher (“My Boo”), Jack White (“Another Way to Die”) and Jay-Z (“Empire State of Mind”).

Question 50

Who is this pop superstar?

Growing up in an affluent Toronto neighbourhood and starring in a popular TV series, this rapper probably never “Started From the Bottom”, as he’s claimed through his music. But it’s still been an impressive rise to superstardom for the man known as ‘Champagne Papi’. In late 2018, he surpassed the Beatles for most Billboard top ten singles in one year and also holds the record for most charted songs ever by a solo artist. That groundbreaking success has helped the “Hotline Bling” singer transition to a mainstream celebrity and household name, hosing the ESPY awards and getting a featured cameo in “Anchorman 2”.
