Pop Roundup October 2011
Well, it's been an interesting month or so, pop fans. If the albums we've selected as October's Top 10 are any indication, it's been a time of risk-taking, new endeavors and career revitalizations. We've got artists from high-profile groups branching out on their own for the first time (hi, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and Joe Jonas of ... well, you know). We've got buzzy underground acts targeting the mainstream with major-label debuts (hey there, J Cole and Mayer Hawthorne). We've got an exciting debut from Mindless Behavior and sophomore slump-beaters from Jason DeRulo and Allstar Weekend. And most exciting of all, we've got a few of our favorite young divas returning to the spotlight, including Ms. Demi Lovato and Evanescence's Amy Lee. Tune in and catch up on pop's latest and greatest!
