Every day, millions of listeners stream their favorite artists on Spotify. Now, the official numbers for the top five female artists streamed are in, and these ladies are some true hustlers.
The numbers are shocking, considering the female artists who have gained much traction on the internet.
As of September 5, these are the top 5 female artists streamed on Spotify:
1. Doja Cat: 58.86 million
Ironically, Doja made her first viral debut singing about being a cow, dressed in a cow print two-piece set.
The lighthearted video made people laugh, but she proved her artistry and versatility with her hit single “Juicy.”
Her fans range from various genres, including hip-hop, R&B, and pop.
2. Nicki Minaj: 46.71 million
The Barbz would be sad to learn the queen came in second place.
Nicki’s music has always been off the charts, and having nearly 10 million fewer views than Doja isn’t that bad.
Nicki Minaj is still the queen of rap, at least for this generation, and her numbers are substantial for someone who hasn’t released an album with unreleased music since 2018.
3. Megan Thee Stallion: 32.5 million
Similarly to Doja, Megan has appealed to various audiences, including hip-hop and pop.
The Houston native also recently released her sophomore album, Traumazine. She is also under tense internet pressure following some on-court allegations.
4. Cardi B: 29.72 million
Cardi B is a sought-after female hip-hop artist in this generation, and her music has earned her a Grammy Award.
Even though she has been called out for not writing her rhymes, the internet still loves her personality. Cardi has not released an album since 2018, but her recent collaborations might mean a new album is on the way.
5. Latto: 15.26 million
Latto released her 777 album this year, showcasing her musical versatility.
She is not new to the industry, having been rapping since she was young, even appearing on Jermaine Dupri’s The Rap Game show.
Since then, she has maintained her relevance in the industry breaking records with her hit single “Big Energy.”
