One of my favorite artists Lizzo recently dropped a list of who she sees as The Best Artists in R&B, Hip-Hop, Pop, and more. We all have our favorites, so no matter who puts Best Artist list together it's never gonna be quite right. Right?  Of course! As expected off the bat, folks started picking her Best Artist list apart. Some questioned, why her list was missing Whitney Houston. Others scoffed at the fact that she listed Justin Beiber and not Usher or even Chris Brown. Honestly, there are so many unbelievable music artists, it's almost impossible to fit them all in a specific category.

Hey, that was her list! Those are the artists that Lizzo was impacted by most. Well, piggybacking on her idea, I thought I'd take a jab at the Best Artist list. I got a much longer list, so I separated my favorite artists male from female. Below is my 20 Best Female Artists listed as the best in their particular style or genre of music. It was hard because I like so many artists, but take a look and let me know whatcha think...Did I hit the mark or did I miss the mark?
