Pretty much every single recording artist has had the same dream, regardless of just how they got into music or what genre they sink into, becoming an industry symbol and changing the dynamics of music all along the way. Although there are dozens of brilliant and renowned artists around today, only a select handful are able to do it all. Most will also have a smash hit or two, and some will even have a streak of smash albums, but only a handful will shift the direction of mainstream music or open a new road for those who come after them.

This piece may indeed be a ‘vibe’ (as the tik tok youth say) but we have to wonder if it is, however, equipped with bars? The growth of an artist's craft is one of the most difficult things to pull off; if you alter too little, you're perceived as putting out the same music, but if you change too much, you risk alienating your fan base. Here are some musicians who, for better or worse, don't look like they did at the outset of their careers.
