A smattering of new female acts clawed their way to the top of the pop ladder in the first half of 2012. Lana Del Rey effortlessly transitioned from indie-darling to global superstar, a subtle synth-pop anthem proved to be Ellie Goulding’s ticket to the Top 5 and Carly Rae Jepsen unleashed the all-conquering bubblegum-pop juggernaut “Call Me Maybe”. But who is going to follow in their much-hyped footsteps? We attempt to answer that very question by shining a light on 12 ladies, from 9 different countries, who all have one thing in common: the raw talent and ferocious attitude to make the leap from blog sensation to chart force.

    Azealia Banks is the best. I got sick of music for a while but she’s revived my interest.
