Last year's top-selling Anti, RiRi's 8th album, raked in six Grammy noms (no wins, alas). She showed two season of her Fenty Puma line in Paris and returns to NYFW in September. In 2018, catch her on screen in Ocean's 8.

How do you follow the buzziest release of 2016? Bey's big drop this year had nothing to do with music (though she contributed to Jay-Z's 4:44): She gave birth to twins Sir and Rumi in June. In 2018, she will headline Coachella, so maybe book those flights now.

MADONNA IN V89

The Queen of Pop released Rebel Heart in 2015. On the family front, she adopted twins from Malawi in February, where she opened a pediatric surgery center named after her 11-year-old daughter Mercy James. She's also recently brought a dream palace in Portugal.
