These musicians were once all the rage, so where did they end up?? For this list, we’ll be exploring the careers of musicians who have basically dropped off the map!
Whether they had a chart topping hit, a hugely successful album or a significant presence in mainstream music, these artists have since faded into obscurity.
From pop stars like Duffy and Michelle Branch, to rappers like Lauryn Hill and Ja Rule and groups such as Alient Ant Farm, Good Charlotte and Gotye, we’ve unfortunately heard
very little from these once-household names. Are there any acts we’re forgetting? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Watchmojo dropped a video on Eminem’s feuds about a week ago and forgot the real reason Ja Rule’s career ended.

  2. Like I can forget Lauryn Hill
    Voice, looks, message. COMPLETE. PACKAGE.
    Thanks watch mojo. Imma go watch all her videos again NOW.

  3. Supposedly, Natasha Bedingfield intends to put out a new album sometime in the near future, but she refuses to release it until everything meets her standards of quality. She has put out some recent non-album affiliated singles on her vevo youtube channel in just the last few months to a year, but her focus has been greatly on motherhood above all else.

  4. Y’all really just disrespected Akon like that you forgot to list how much he helped out his home country🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️
