Apple Music Lists Most-Streamed Female Artists of All Time

Plus Shazam's biggest artists of 2018

Music News Apple Music

To commemorate International Women’s Day, Apple Music has curated a playlist of the top-streamed female artists through their platform of all time. Additionally, the song-identifier app Shazam has released their list of the most “Shazam’d” artists of last year.

The lists reveal that the most streamed female artist of all time is Ariana Grande, with Cardi B holding the title of the most Shazam’d. The two lists naturally contain a lot of crossover between them, and perhaps even more unsurprisingly, consist entirely of pop artists.

Apple Music will continue the trend of female-centric playlists throughout the month of March with their “Visionary Women” series.
