Editors’ Notes So many bops, so little time. The relaunch of A-List Pop happened during a stellar year for the genre. Lizzo, Halsey, Camila, Katy, Niall, and Selena all made grand entrances (and re-entrances), but who had a better 2019 than Ariana Grande? After closing out 2018 with the breakup mantra “thank u, next” (released soon after her broken engagement with Pete Davidson), her 2019 single “7 rings” was a tribute to her friends, flexing hard but flitting with cool, confident grace. The sweet Rodgers & Hammerstein interpolation was the cherry on top. Listen to “7 rings” now and look back at the year in pop.
