11. Sam Smith (September 9th)
Even before Sam Smith released a full-length debut, he was on his way to pop stardom— the singer/songwriter topped charts as the guest vocalist on Disclosure's “Latch” and Naughty Boy’s “La La La,” and took top honors at both the BBC Sound Of poll and the BRITs. Still, the parade of soul-inflected pop and smoldering ballads on Smith's first album, In the Lonely Hour, soared above the stratospheric expectations, offering one of 2014’s most impressive debuts.
