(2021 Edition) Annually, Apple Music keeps track of the most streamed chart-topping songs/ albums, and shares the Top 10/20 on their platform with viewers.
Apple Music Top 20 Albums of 2021… From Afrobeats to Amapiano, or Gqom to Afrosoul, the sounds of Africa have captured the hearts of music fans everywhere. It’s a charm that’s expanded into other areas of pop culture, moving from speaker to screen as soundtracks from modern Afro-centric films—like Black Panther and revivals of Coming to America and The Lion King—highlight the artists propelling their cultures forward.
