The music world is one of the most popular sectors among people and as 2022 progresses, everyone is looking to see which artists will surprise this year. There are quite a few successful artists around the world, and some have even managed to gain international attention.
In general, people who consume music are always on the lookout to check out the releases of the year, and especially to meet a new name that will release an important musical hit. A real music fan always strives to be in trend and have the opportunity to show off his musical knowledge among like-minded people.
Probably, every lover of modern music is interested to know who climbed to the top of the world musical Olympus. As a rule, information from different sources differs markedly and only rarely coincides.
The coincidence was, for example, with the mega-popular track “Despacito”, which scored more than six billion views at the end of 2021, for which it got into the Guinness Book of Records. In this case, almost all music portals were unanimous in their opinion.
Falling from sky-high heights is as common as viral music content circulating for hours. But some artists have successfully managed to stay in the spotlight several times in a row for a month or a year, and some even for decades.
So, we will be guided by the top list of the Swedish streaming service Spotify, which leads the global music market, which periodically updates information and publishes fresh data for a certain period of time, for example, a day, a week, a month, and so on.
Spotify claims that The Weeknd can be considered the most popular artist in 2022. In 2022, this mega-popular artist was honored with ten of the most prestigious Billboard Music Awards and five iHeartRadio Music Awards. He also won the title of “Best Artist of the Year”, making him the most popular singer in the world this year.
