Edition 2021 Apple Music maintains track of the most streamed chart-topping songs/albums every year and distributes the Top 10/20 with viewers on their site.
The Top 20 Albums on Apple Music in 2021... The sounds of Africa have won the hearts of music enthusiasts all around the world, from Afrobeats to Amapiano, Gqom to Afrosoul. It's a charm that's spread to other aspects of pop culture, with soundtracks from recent Afro-centric films like Black Panther, as well as revivals of Coming to America and The Lion King, highlighting the artists who are propelling their cultures ahead.
Western music is given little or no consideration. Commercial pop and, of course, Trap are the only international sounds that make it to the African market. The Apple Music chart for this year says a lot.
