Lorde curated the entire soundtrack for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1" at age 17. FKA twigs broke out of her "Video Girl" mold and morphed into something completely new with her debut record, LP1. Taylor Swift shook off the haters and the detractors to put out her first pop record, 1989, which broke records and became the bestselling album of the year. And Charli XCX continued to break all the rules this year.
