Which Pop Queen Had The Best Debut Album?

By: Matt Russoniello / April 16, 2013

The debut album is often the most important release of a musician’s career. It is an artist’s introduction to the world, and its success can guarantee a legion of lifelong fans.

Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears all released phenomenally successful debut albums. Each album has been certified multi-platinum and contains at least one #1 single. Not bad for your first time out, ladies. (For simplicity’s sake, we’ll ignore the fact that Beyoncé had been recording with Destiny’s Child for more than seven years by the time she released her first solo album. Ahem.)
