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.

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.

After studying the biggest songs of the current decade, let’s continue our travel through the past with the biggest songs of the 2000s! At first glance, the biggest artists were Britney Spears and Beyoncé for female artists, Eminem for male singers, Coldplay and Linkin Park for bands. Does one of these artists top the list of the biggest songs of the 2000s? Are there surprises among the top 10? You will find the answer in this new Data Collector list!
Dido is back! I can already hear many teenagers asking “Dido who?”. For people like me who are old enough to have been listening to music at the start of the 00s though, Dido was almost as inevitable as Adele has been recently. Can the British singer, now 47, register a successful comeback with her 5th album, Still On My Mind, out March 8?
