So, are you ready to see a countdown of the best selling artists of the 2010s?
A decade ago, the music industry was completely different. We still had record players at home, downloads was the big thing, Adele and Drake were promising newcomers at best and nobody had heard about streaming platforms.
For artists, that’s the tricky part. A decade is long enough to see a completely new generation of music consumers replace the former one.
That’s why it takes you a lot of appeal to remain on top and why this list is made of the truly biggest artists in the World…
Every year China seems to be climbing several positions on IFPI’s top music market’s ranking and the growth doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
In just a few years we could see this country overtake markets like the UK, France and Germany and seriously challenging Japan! So who is benefiting the most from this? Just like we did with Gaana earlier this year we’re now looking at the most followed international artists on QQ Music, China’s biggest streaming service.
With only three albums to his name, Bruno Mars has become one of the most played artists of the millennium. He got famous thanks to his massive debut single Just the Way You Are, as well as a large string of hits all around the world.
How have his albums performed, though? Is he more than just a singles artist? This article might answer your questions.
Up to only 3 studio albums, Bruno Mars can already claim 7 US Hot 100 #1s and 15 Top 5 hits. The pop star has been a splendid seller in download format, but with no new album since 2016 how do his streams add up?
With 9 number one singles in her native country, Katy Perry is undoubtedly one of the biggest hit makers of the past 10 years. She shaped the digital era alongside artists like Rihanna, Adele, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars & Maroon 5.
Has this success managed to translate into other metrics? We’ll find out shortly enough!
Here we are, 2010s are soon over! Thus, it is time to have a review of the songs that have been dominant during this period. Obviously, everyone remembers blockbusters of Adele and Ed Sheeran, as well as Drake‘s, Bieber‘s and Rihanna‘s incredible numbers through streaming platforms. Does one of these artists top the list of the biggest songs of the decade? Are there surprises among the top 10? You will find the answer in this new Data Collector list!
I know, you are obsessed with your favorite singer. You never spend a single day without going online on blogs and boards to support him (more often than not it’s a “her”) as much as possible. You will charge against every negative comment and bring his positive achievements even when it’s hardly on topic. Guess what? You are doing everything wrong and your beloved star would be right to be mad at you coz you ain’t helping at all.
Rock is dead. We hear this sentence since decades. Don McLean famously regarded 2/3/1959 as the day the music died after the tragic passing of Buddy Holly. Many claim the Woodstock wheel was broken by the poor output of 1974. Others consider that 1991 was the last breath of the genre. From Coldplay to Linkin Park to Nickelback to Green Day, various bands proved kind of recently that rock can still attract the masses. The last group to illustrate this fact is no other than Imagine Dragons.
The IFPI has now published the most awaited list of the year: the official Worldwide Top 10 best selling albums of 2017. Expectedly, Ed Sheeran‘s Divide leads the way. The ranking still includes several strong surprises!
Please be aware that only albums from labels which do communicate their data to the IFPI are listed. For this reason BTS, EXO and Namie Amuro are missing.
