Top 5 Best Afrobeat Artist 2021
Now days, anyone looking to explore African music is often first pointed to Afrobeats, the groovy sound nestled mainly in West Africa. The year 2021, like the years that have preceded it, saw the dance genre continue to make believers of all nations.
The genre’s growing global traction was seen in traditional and new avenues starting with a steady supply of hit songs, international collaborations and awards – with usual suspects including Burna Boy, Davido, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid leading affairs. In July, 2020, the genre got its first ‘official’ chart, which highlights impactful Afrobeats artists in the UK, where the scene has accrued widespread popularity for about a decade.
Around 2019, Afrobeats artists spent 86 weeks on the Official Charts Company’s Official Chart Top 40. “This fast-growing genre is having an increasingly powerful impact on the music landscape right now, both in the UK and further afield, through artists including the likes of NSG, J Hus and Burna Boy,” Official Charts Company CEO Martin Talbot said.
