Gaga. Rihanna. Bruno. You only need one name to recognize the biggest pop stars of the 2010s. These are just a few of the nominees – and winners – of the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album. These are the records that might have soundtracked your high school dance, dramatic breakup, or cross-country road trip. But whatever your personal connection to this music, it's undeniable that these are among 2010s' best pop vocal albums.

Which LP should top this list of the best pop vocal albums of the 2010s? Plenty of pop stars vied for the spotlight after 2010, but Lady Gaga's The Fame Monster was one of the most buzzed-about releases of this time. The unconventional pop starlet took home the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album in 2011. Teenage Dream singer Katy Perry was also very popular with Grammy voters throughout the decade.

It isn't often that a musician switches genres, but Taylor Swift did just that – and successfully, too. Swift went from country to pop with her Grammy-winning album, 1989. Other fan-favorite recordings featured on this list of Grammy-nominated 2010s albums include Ed Sheeran's X and Paradise by Lana Del Rey.
