I am thrilled with how well Kacey Musgraves is doing on these lists. Very well deserved, in my opinion!

This has been the biggest surprise so far. I know there's been a huge trend lately toward The P-word Which Will Not Be Named (at least by me, because I can't stand that word), but when did Grande become such a critical darling all of a sudden?

I'm in my late 40s & 'thank u, next' & 'no tears left to cry' are great. Not yet listened to album as wasn't really into 'God is a woman'

However I do draw the line at titles in lower case :whistle: :angry-banghead:
