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…
If you visit us, you surely saw a lot of news in recent years stating streaming records. What’s unlikely is that you ever saw a comprehensive list of Spotify most streamed artists, with numbers for all those who belong to the all-time top 200.
Thanks to our Spotify numbers tool, it’s now possible to retrieve an enormous quantity of data very efficiently. So, who are the most streamed male, female, bands, legacy artists on the platform?
After a smashing first album, Maroon 5 saw its success shrink until the release of Moves Like Jagger. This song has steered the band to the tops of the charts. Is this trajectory also visible on streaming platforms?
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 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!
