Top Artists of 2013 Talk About Their Favorite Music of the Year
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.02.2014



RollingStone recently asked 2013's top artists on their best music picks of the year. Below are some highlights:

Lorde on Drake's Nothing Was the Same: "I like soul-baring music, and there are some tasty jams on this album. There aren't that many dudes in Drake's position that are so emo. He does those moments of "I'm fucking this beautiful woman, but I'm so sad!" so well. You expect that from him. I saw heaps of funny things about him on Twitter, like, "When it's raining, that means they're listening to Drake in heaven."

Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig on Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop": "This song is undeniable. Miley's like, "We can't stop" — in that sense, it's a typical party song. It's minimal. But there's this melancholy running through it, which is one of my favorite types of pop song. You could easily write a straight-up sad song over that beat. I like that hint of sadness. It's like, "Why can't you stop? What's going to happen if you do stop?"

Macklemore on Chance the Rapper's Acid Rapp: "Each year, you get a few artists in hip-hop that push the genre and challenge the listener. Chance was that guy this year. He incorporated all these elements that stood out sonically. His cadences were different, his melodies were different, his flow, his inflection — everything about this mixtape is left-field from what people are doing nowadays. At the same time, it's all really cohesive. It just feels os refreshing and new, with a perspective that's just different from anything else in 2013. And I really like that."

Avicii on Ashley Wallbridge's "Crush": "I'm a member of the generation that goes crazy over a song, not a whole album. This one was my favorite this year. I like it beause of the massive drop. It's a track that always works when I play it live. I also really liked Jay Z's song "Holy Grail" — the entire vibe of the track, from the lyrics to the beat, is great."
