It’s undeniably been a tough year for people around the world and we still have four months left in 2017. If we’re going to make it to New Year’s Eve, we need some doses of positivity mixed in with action.
One thing we can be thankful for in 2017 is lots of new and incredible music. In an act that warms our hearts, some of the biggest names in pop are back with new albums to release alongside exciting new artists. Even better, they all love one another.
Check out artists that are fan-girling over each other in 2017.
CHARLI XCX AND MILEY CYRUS
When Miley Cyrus returned to the charts this summer with her single for “Younger,” she found an instant fan in fellow performer and writer Charli XCX.
i think younger now is my new fav miley song. it sounds so epic and emotional and raw. i feel like i’m in another world when i listen to it.

SZA AND ALESSIA CARA
There is a lot of mutual love between SZA and Alessia Cara. The young artists have both professed their love for one another on social media, with Cara even going a step further and recently covering SZA’s “Drew Barrymore.” There are four months left in 2017 for SZA and Cara to release an official collaboration before the end of the year.

DEMI LOVATO AND KESHA
We’ll forgive Demi Lovato for being a little bit late to the ‘Kesha Comeback Tour 2017.’ As she’s proven many times, Lovato knows a thing or two about mastering impressive high notes, which makes her the perfect person to recognize the brilliance of Kehsa’s incredible vocal performance on “Praying.”
Little late but Praying by @KeshaRose is so fucking good.. and that high note?!!?

DEMI LOVATO AND SELENA GOMEZ
Demi Lovato’s huge 2017 single “Sorry Not Sorry” may be all about waving goodbye to her haters, but the singer has nothing but love for her fellow female musicians on social media. In July, Lovato congratulated her former Barney costar Selena Gomez on her new single “Fetish.” The pair may not be back to being besties, but were still pretty excited that they are friends once again.
.@selenagomez Loving your new song Fetish, we’ve come a long way since our Barney days

MEGHAN TRAINOR AND JESSIE REYEZ
One person who definitely tuned into Jesse Reyez’s August debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was fellow singer Meghan Trainor. After Reyez shared a picture of herself next to the Tonight Show logo, Trainor went full-emoji on her Twitter account, sharing her excitement over the performance. We totally praying hands feel you, Meghan.

MICHELLE BRANCH AND TEGAN AND SARA
Being fans of one another’s music is pretty cool, but for Michelle Branch and Tegan and Sara, supporting LGBTQ rights is even cooler. These are what rock stars look like.

JULIA MICHAELS AND PINK
Millions of fans around the world were ecstatic when singer Pink announced she would be releasing a new album in October. One of those fans was singer-songwriter Julia Michaels.
@Pink you are my idol.

KELLY CLARKSON AND LEA MICHELE
Lea Michele knows exactly how difficult it is to sing a Kelly Clarkson song. During her time on Glee, Michele and co. covered five Clarkson tracks, with Michele even performing a solo of Clarkson’s track “Cry.” So, when the TV and theatre star gives credit, she knows exactly where it’s due.

LORDE AND TOVE LO
At this year’s MTV VMAs, Lorde proved that she can still put on a great show even without her voice, but it’s still more fun to be on stage with friends. During her August performance at Osheaga in Montréal, Lorde was joined on stage by her ‘sister’ Tove Lo for a high energy performance.

CARLY RAE JEPSEN AND MAGGIE ROGERS
Newcomer Maggie Rogers knows that when the sun comes out, so do the hits from Carly Rae Jepsen. Cue Jepsen’s huge summer hit “Cut to the Feeling” and grab some sunscreen.
there’s new @carlyraejepsen out and i’m so giddy i think this means summer starts now?

HALSEY AND FIFTH HARMONY
Halsey and Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui worked together on Halsey’s 2017 album Hopefully Fountain Kingdom and it looks like the solo singer is also a Harmonizer. Halsey has been stanning for 5H on Twitter, with the singer welcoming the girl group’s new era with open arms.
