This category gets harder to curate every year, as I debate whether a low-key single counts as a proper debut, as opposed to an EP or album. Regardless, here are the top ten debuts by artists who made their biggest impacts in the calendar year.
iScream: i // Lonesome_Blue: First Utterance
FLO: The Lead // Em Beihold: Egg in the Backseat
Madison Rose: TECHNICOLOR // Naniwa Danshi: 1st Love
Kira Shiomi: TOKYO CONTINUE // Early Moods: Early Moods
Takanori Iwata: THE CHOCOLATE BOX // Gabi DeMartino: Paintings of Me
