18 Things That Will Turn 10 In 2018

By  January 6, 2018

A blast from the past.

How old were you in 2008? What were you doing in 2008? Were you listening to any of these albums or singles in 2008? Music has evolved drastically since the 2000s, whether it got better or worse that’s debatable. Most of the artists below had their heydays back in the 2000s but a few are still going strong today.

Take a trip down memory lane and look at 18 albums and singles that will turn a decade old this year!

 

ALBUMS

19 – Adele

Titled after her age at that time of release, 19 marked the start of it all for Adele. However, for many of us her second album, 21, was the one that really caught out eyes with the likes of Rolling In The Deep and Set Fire To The Rain.

One Of The Boys – Katy Perry

Filled with chart topping hits like I Kissed A Girl, Waking Up In Vegas, Thinking Of You and Hot n Cold. This was the album that catapulted Katy’s career to where she is today.

Good Girl Gone Bad – Rihanna

With this album, we saw Rihanna transform from having an innocent image to the edgy pop star we know her as. This album also includes some of her classic hits like Umbrella, Don’t Stop The Music and Shut Up and Drive.

Breakout – Miley Cyrus

This was Miley Cyrus breaking out of her Hannah Montana shell. Being the first album not related to her character Hannah Montana, Miley was able to put in more of her personality and elements of rock music – rather different from Hannah Montana’s music.

The Fame – Lady Gaga

This album kick-started Lady Gaga’s career with the likes of Poker Face, Just Dance and Paparazzi. Those were also the days where she was known to be over the top and eccentric. Lady Gaga would turn up on a red carpet in a meat-dress or in an incubator.

The Block – New Kids On The Block

They were heartthrobs back in the late 1980s and 1990s, and this album marked the band’s comeback in 2008. Songs like Summertime, Single and Dirty Dancing flooded the radio airways and we just couldn’t get enough of them.

Fearless – Taylor swift

We’re sure everyone is familiar with chart toppers like Love Story and You Belong With Me. This album marked Taylor’s international breakthrough to become the global superstar we know her today as.

I Am… Sasha Fierce – Beyoncé

Beyoncé’s two-disk album was quite a showstopper, with hits like Single Ladies, Halo and If I Were A Boy. From then till now, Beyoncé is still a force to be reckoned with and that’ll continue for a long time.

Circus – Britney Spears

We know Britney for her over the top productions and insane sets when it comes to her live shows; you never know what you’ll get with her. The title of this album encompasses the whole idea and the songs definitely live up to what they stand for.

 

SINGLES

Viva La Vida – Coldplay

The opening bars are so distinct and unique to this song that you cannot forget.

I’m Yours – Jason Mraz

Are you still listening to this track today? This is one that’ll stay in our playlist for a very long time.

Fall For You – Secondhand Serenade

Didn’t we all try to learn this song on the guitar?  It was probably the love song of 2008.

4 Minutes – Madonna

Jumping from one car to another, dancing around in a grocery store and oh ya trying to save the world…

So What – P!nk

P!nk has challenged so many boundaries in music even till today. She’s right, so what she is a rock star.

Leavin’ – Jesse McCartney

This is bringing back so many memories; do you remember having this song on your Walkman, IPod or Creative Zen?

When I Grow Up – Pussycat Dolls

As the lead single off their album Doll Domination, this track was a hit among fans from all over the world.

Burnin’ Up – Jonas Brothers

These boys, heartthrobs in the late 2000s! This song brought back so many memories from their music and TV series, good times.

Crush – David Archuleta

Crush recently made a comeback after a fan tried to sing all the parts of the song in a viral video on YouTube.  

 

Bonus: Beyonce and Jay Z’s wedding

Music’s most talked about couple tied the knot in April of 2008 in a super-intimate ceremony.
