From Ariana Grande to Beyoncé to Zayn, we're taking a look back at the best pop music had to offer in 2016.

The year is drawing to an end at last (finally!), which means it's time for a moment of reflection on all the album releases of the past year.

The PopCrush editors have weighed in with their favorite picks: from Ariana Grande to Britney Spears to Terror Jr to Solange Knowles (spoiler alert: she's not the only Knowles who made our list this year!), we've got a little somethin' for everyone included in this round-up. And no, the albums are not in any particular order.

Scroll through the gallery above to see which records we loved the most this year. And be sure to make your own voice heard with the Best Album of 2016 PopCrush Fan Choice Awards poll.
