ONTD Original: 25 More Great Debut Singles by Female Artists

Yesterday, Rolling Stone shared their list of the greatest debut singles of all time. And while Britney Spears' "…Baby One More Time" (1998) claimed the top spot, in true Rolling Stone fashion female artists only accounted for one-fourth of the list's 100 entries (this fraction becomes only slightly larger if one includes singles by co-ed acts Blondie, The B-52s and Chic).

In response, I shared what I believe to be 25 of the best debut singles by female artists that weren't recognized by Rolling Stone. In keeping with the parameters of the original list, I didn't include solo debuts by artists that were already well-known as members of an ensemble—think "Crazy in Love" or "London Bridge"—but there were still a ton of great, eligible debuts that didn't make the cut. So without further ado, I bring you Part 2.
