And The Hits Just Didn’t Keep Coming: 15 Female Artists Whose Music Careers Didn’t Take Off

Just because you have talent or passion doesn’t mean you’ll be successful. It’s one of the great tragedies of being in the music business. The sassy songbirds on this list may have had a hit, but one hit does not a career make. These female artists shot for the stars but fell short of mainstream success.

Cassie doesn’t have the strongest voice, but in 2006 she had a radio hit. Her song “Me and U” peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts but that’s the most success she’s had so far. Even with music producers Ryan Leslie and P. Diddy steering her career, Cassie failed to wow the music industry. Today, she’s more known for being Diddy’s other main chick than for making music.

    I didn’t know Tynisha started making music professionally. I remember her from Myspace. Didn’t know Tiffany Evans got married or had a baby. I’d like to add Megan Rochell.

    “Passed” her image? Who proofreads these articles? Someone who writes for a living should know the difference between “passed” and “past.”

    That’s too bad, because she’s gorgeous. Strange, because I think Jennifer Lopez is not that good of a singer, but she’s had huge success. It’s weird.
