Debut Songs That Launched Singers' Careers

Here are the best songs that singers have debuted their music careers with from the late 1990's and 2000's. This list does not rank the best debut songs. It is just a list I compiled.

1. Here - Alessia Cara

2. All About That Bass - Meghan Trainer

3. Tik Tok - Kesha

4. Baby One More Time - Britney Spears

5. Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

6. Complicated - Avril Lavigne

7. Run It - Chris Brown

8. Just Dance - Lady Gaga

9. What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

10. Tim McGraw - Taylor Swift

11. I Kissed A Girl - Katy Perry

12. This Love - Maroon 5

13. Rolling in the Deep - Adele

14. One Time - Justin Bieber

15. Genie in a Bottle - Christina Aguilera

16. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars

17. Umbrella - Rihanna

This was not her debut song but this was the first song off her second album, "Good Girl Gone Bad" and for me that was when she really came into her own and became a musical force to be reckoned with.

18. Misery Business - Paramore

19. Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

This was not Demi's first debut either, but it was her first debut after coming out of rehab. I feel like she came out of her shell and really shined from this moment on in her career.

20. The Heart Wants What It Wants - Selena Gomez

This was not Selena's first debut but this was the first song that I felt like she was able to put more of her own input into it. And every song she has put out since this one has been a hit. She is definitely going in a better direction in her career.

21. Where is the Love? - The Black Eyed Peas

22. The Climb - Miley Cyrus

23. Crazy in Love - Beyonce

24. Best I Ever Had - Drake

25. My Name is - Eminem

26. There You Go - Pink
