The past decade saw a breakdown in genres, conventions, musical borders and barriers to entry… as the best albums of the 2010s prove.
The Weeknd notched his fourth No.1 hit with his latest single ‘Heartless’, jumping from No.32 to the top spot in its second week on the chart.

The Weeknd goes full ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ in the new video for his single, ‘Heartless’, shot in downtown Las Vegas and featuring Metro Boomin.
Rapidly following his previous new track, 'Heartless', the new synth-heavy tune also soundtracks a new Mercedes-Benz advert.
“Tonight we start a brain melting psychotic chapter let’s go,” the singer tweeted before unveiling new track.
On the genre-merging ‘My Everything’ album, Ariana Grande moved away from the fizzy pop of her debut and started coming into her own.
On ‘Queen’, crossover artist Nicki Minaj reclaimed the hip-hop crown with her most rap-oriented album yet, and demanded fealty from the newcomers.
