Same rules apply this round: Vote every hour and share/tweet the polls to help your favorite songs move forward on the bracket!

[SEMI-FINALS] The OFFICIAL Q1 Song Tournament Post

Here are your SEMI-FINALISTS!

These are the four songs with the most votes in the song tournament! The girls of Fifth Harmony take on this quarter’s heavyweight Rihanna! “Work” has been #1 for 7 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Can 5H’s buzz single “The Life” edge out Badgal’s massive hit “Work?”

Gwen Stefani stole everyone’s heart this quarter with her #1 album ‘This Is What the Truth Feels Like’ and her live music video for “Make Me Like You” which premiered (and was filmed) during the 2016 Grammy Awards. She will go up against the dark horse of the tournament, dumblonde‘s “remember me.” Can the underdog duo take on Gwen this quarter?

#QuickListen Review: “Make Me Like You” – Gwen Stefani

The Queen of “Cool” brings out the summery sunshine early this year

 

Continuing her autobiographical journey out and into new love, Gwen Stefani just released her bouncy ode to her new beau Blake Shelton. Although written by Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels, you’d probably think it was penned by Gwen herself; as this song plays out like a real-time update on her love life.

 

The song begins with Gwen cooing a sigh of pleasure; a stretch from the painfully emotional previous single, “Used To Love You.” Perfect for Valentine’s day, Gwen sings over bubbly pop melodies and ska-inspired guitar and drum beats. This song is such a great summer-ready love song — if it doesn’t make you wanna text your crush, lover, friend, coworker or really ANYONE about how much you are in love with them or yourself than you just really don’t deserve to feel this enamored alongside me and Gwen Stefani.

“Make Me Like You” is the perfect song to display Gwen Stefani’s talent as one of the most fun, positive and lovely pop vets around.

 

The track is from Gwen Stefani’s forthcoming album, “This Is What The Truth Feels Like.” Pre-Order the album right here before it’s March 18th release.

The Pop Pyro’s Top Picks of 2015: ANNOUNCEMENT

I’m really excited to share my top picks from the material our POP DIVAS have given us this year in music!

Throughout these remaining days in 2015 I will be releasing TWO categories a day. On New Year’s Eve I will have the album/song of the year plus crown the “Diva of the Year.”
Over the past six months I’ve been building this page, I can now see where the page is and where it’s going. I’ve realized that I want to celebrate all the women in pop music that aren’t afraid to keep pop music interesting and colorful. You know, for us kids that were raised in the early 00’s era. It was a battle zone of pop divas trying to outdo one another by amazing videos and performances. I’m talking about the Britneys, Christinas and P!nks; even the Katys and Gagas… a time where pop music was about being beautiful, irreverent and THE FULL PACKAGE. So my picks this year and the content on this page will forever reflect that.
If you’re a fan of the “Britney”-types; the girls that aren’t afraid to sell a little sex appeal and have a dance break in the middle of a ballad, Then The Pop Pyro is the place for you.

The Pop Pyro is:

The Pop Pyro was created and is run by myself. If we haven’t been introduced yet, I’m Jeremy Miles. I invite anyone from this page to follow my posts on my personal account as well. I’m a huge fan of Britney Spears and all of her peers. I get a little critical of some of her pop rivals, but in the end, I support all of the women in pop music that are similar to her.
And with nearly 4,500 likes here on Facebook, I think this is also an appropriate time to thank you guys AGAIN about how grateful I am of your comments, likes, shares and compliments on my posts and original content. The page has had videos with over 130 thousand views and reaches of over 2.5 million timelines! (Same with memes that have gone viral.)
Before I start releasing the “of the year” categories tomorrow, Spotify has a great review of your personal listening habits and I’d like to share mine with you. And so I can get to know you guys better, put your results in the comment section or copy the text below and change the answers to fit as best as you can.

THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN. I CAN’T WAIT TO CONTINUE THE PAGE IN 2016.
