Sleeper Hits: Under-Appreciated Songs From Artists We Love Pt. 2

Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Carley Rae Jepsen, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion

Throwback? Check. Current sounds? Check. Underrated? Not for long.

You didn't think that was it, did you? While it's true that an artist's entire discography and song compendium can be fully appreciated only by the truest fans, the first part of our under-appreciated songs list managed to scratch the surface.

The follow-up is back with lost favorites and bops from Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Carly Rae Jepsen, and more.

Whitney Houston - The voice. The legend. The icon. Houston could have sung us the ABC's or the Oscar Meyer Weiner song and we'd be enraptured. Though every track spanning her discography wasn't met with the same commercial success as "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" or "My Love Is Your Love," they all deserved it.

Carly Rae Jepsen - One of today's contemporary pop dynamos, Jepsen rose to global fame during the summer of her viral hit, "Call Me Maybe." Still adored by fans who eagerly await new music from her, the rest of the world (and charts) only lost her because they stopped looking.

Mariah Carey - Having made the seamless transition from pop diva to meme queen, Mariah has always been a force to be reckoned with. Her peak popularity saw albums full of her soft, sighing tones alongside notes belted for the nosebleeds.

Celine Dion - Still in the midst of her resurgence, Dion has come a long way from winning Eurovision in 1988. Able to elicit a good cry from most of us with her emotional ballads, the Canada-born diva's voice still soars.

Janet Jackson - Eternal icon Janet Jackson has given us consistently good music for decades. Always more than Michael's sister, Miss Jackson found her own spotlight and never stepped out of it.

Christina Aguilera - Though she fell off the map for a short time at the beginning of the decade (justice for Bionic and Lotus, please), no one could ever dim Xtina's instantly-recognizable voice. After films like Burlesque and time spent judging on The Voice, she's ready to release new music. Just don't forget the jams of yesterday.

Ariana Grande - One of the most promising stars in the class of millennial divas, Grande has grown from album to album giving us radio smashes and underdog favorites.

Lady Gaga pt. 2 - Though not the only one deserving of another mention on this list, Gaga is an easy target as one of the few artists on this list without some sort of greatest hits album. Here are more of Mother Monster's lesser known tracks that warrant attention.
