The outlet released its list of the top 50 albums of the year and the top 10 spots are all occupied by female artists, but that doesn’t mean the list lacks diversity.

Women from various ethnic backgrounds and genres, from Japanese-Americans and black artists to country and hip-hop are celebrated in the ranks.

Singer-actress extraordinaire Janelle Monae topped the list with Dirty Computer, an album that was equal parts funky and powerful.
