My Top 5 Albums Of 2013

A bit of a different post today - not a beauty or a fashion post or even skincare but as this year is coming to an end I've been thinking back to everything I have been loving these past 12 months
Of course I love music and there's been a few albums which I have literally had on repeat since getting them! 
So with that in mind I thought I would share with you my top 5 albums of 2013
If you like a bit of girly pop, country, r'n'b, or a good old ballad keep reading and you may find a new artist you never even knew you loved! I know I've mentioned these previously in my monthly favs but I thought I'd put them all together here in one music-loving post!

#5 Demi Lovato - Demi
At number 5 is Demi Lovato with her most recent album Demi. (hahaha I actually sound like Top Of The Pops!) Since hearing her first song of this album called Heart Attack I knew the album would be right up my street! This is a fabulous mix of songs you can sing along to and songs that you can dance too, my favourites are Nightingale, Two Pieces, Warrior, Made in the USA and her duet with Cher Llyod - Really Don't Care.

#4 Katy Perry - Prism
I'm such a Katycat. Her last tour I saw her 3 times, it was pretty much amazeballs and since then I have been patiently waiting for her next album - and here it is! Prism is fabulous, such a mix of sounds and influences and it even gets a little emosh! I love Dark Horse, Legendary Lovers, Ghost and By The Grace Of God and of course I've already got my tickets for the Prismatic Tour next May and am in the reflection section ... aka IN the stage, I cannot wait!

#3 Little Mix - Salute
I loved Little Mix's first album so it was no doubt in my mind that I was going to buy this album and the deluxe version at that - especially after hearing the single Move from it. I have been a fan of Little Mix since the their formation on X Factor 2 years ago - I love all their voices and their styles, I wish these girls could dress and style me everyday
This whole album is amazing but my favourites have to be Little Me the acoustic version, These Four Walls (amazing vocals), Towers, Nothing Feels Like You .... Okay I love them all, perfect album to put on when getting ready for a night out with the girls!

#2 Kacey Musgraces - Same Trailer Different Park
Kacey is an artist I had never ever heard of until one day I randomly stumbled across her having an interview on BBC Breakfast! I saw a clip of her music so thought I'd do a quick YouTube search. I am such a fan of country music and it was love at first sound!
 I went straight on iTunes and bought her album right there and then, within 3 minutes of seeing her on TV for the first time! If you fancy something a bit different to listen to I urge you to please check out Kacey she is such a talented singer and song writer! My favourites on the album are Follow Your Arrow (which I think is her new single), Step Off, Stupid, Blowin' Smoke, My House & Merry Go Round. If you love Taylor Swift you'll love her.
#1 Ariana Grande - Yours Truly 
Number 1 HAS to go to Ariana Grande. I first heard about Ariana through twitter and after watching her on YouTube (for hours) I fell in love. This girl is by far the most talented singer out there in the charts at the moment!
 I love her style and the r'n'b sound to her music - she really is the next Mariah. Her debut album went straight to #1 on the US Billboard chart and if you listen to it you will know why! I've been listening to this album since the day it came out in September and am still addicted! My favourties are her first single The Way, Honeymoon Avenue, Tattooed Heart, Piano & Daydreamin' - this album just makes me so happy. (Oh and Ariana followed me on twitter the other day - this is a BIG deal, major excitement there.)

What have been your favourite albums this year? Was it any of these?

  1. Am I allowed to admit I haven't listened to any of these?!
    I feel so out of touch haha, this has really made me want to get back into music again properly xx

    1. Yes! Check them out, even if it's just YouTube! Xxx

  2. I've listened to Demi, Katy Perry, and Ariana Grande and I agree with your list! These are all amazing albums. Especially Ariana, I loveeeeee her music. I need to check out the other two artists, but I've always been interested in the Little Mix. Their style looks amazing! I guess it's time to give them a try. ;)

    1. I can't get even of Ariana's album - it's sooo good! Just wish I could sing like her! X

  3. I love how all your albums are quite girly! hehe! x

  4. Have to agree; Ariana Grande's album is my favourite at the moment. Always listening to it at college and Piano is my favourite song from it. I love The Saturdays' new album Living For The Weekend and Leona Lewis' new xmas album xx
