9. Angel Haze Photo
Angel Haze is an up-and-coming musician. The singer is featured in the new issue of Elle.
Ariana Grande's nude photo scandal may be the only reason many adults know her name, but Elle says the longtime Nickelodeon star and budding singer is a talent worthy of music fans' attention.
Grande has been vocal about her desire to shed her squeaky-clean image and be taken seriously as a musician.
On the other end of the spectrum is Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea who's had no problem convincing industry experts that she's the real deal. Azalea's freshman studio album doesn't hit US stores until next week, but she's been a known name in hip hop circles for years.
Elle's list blends genres and eras to represent a good cross-section of female musical talents as different as pop legend Cher and indie rock up-and-comers Warpaint.
