Patiently waiting for Adele's return.
It’s been years since some of these artists, who were once staples on the radio and Billboard charts, have released new music. The music landscape is constantly changing, and going years without dropping a new album can be risky -- previous success doesn’t always equate to a swift return. The Top 40 hasn’t been the same without them. New talents like Billie Eillish and Lizzo have taken the world by storm. As much as we love emerging artists, we remain loyal to some of our favorites whose songs were the soundtrack through many life moments. Some artists have taken a break, while others have gone onto create new brands like Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty. Here’s mainstream artists we’d like to make a comeback this year…fingers crossed!
