The Top 45 Singles of 2014
From a superstar diva in training to the mighty domination of Pharrell − HiFi reveals the 45 best singles of 2014
If you missed out on the year that was 2014, all you need to know is that Pharrell Williams, a ponytail-wearing Ariana, gushing sex and retro disco dominated. There just was no stopping Pharrell’s fingers, who managed to pull off a solo album and some sizable songwriting on others. For a good second, we saw some of the most entertaining R&B in years. Ariana Grande‘s singles soared like Katy Perry when she dropped Teenage Dream. The secrets from the boudior were spilled all over the formats, even into alt-rock. And what Daft Punk started last year with the cool revival of disco, 2014 kept the gravy train alive. Although there were a number of satisfying rock and country albums released, both formats seemed to have lost some of their swag. Taylor Swift, being the biggest star they’ve ever had, abandoned her country-pop template for a radical EDM-tempered pop makeover.
