TopHit.com in collaboration with TopHit Spy, presents the Top 10 radio stars for the first 10 months of 2023 in the US and UK.
In the United States, Taylor Swift occupies the top spot, indicative of her massive popularity and the strong resonance of her music with American listeners. The list is heavily dominated by American artists, with The Weeknd (Canadian) and Dua Lipa (British) being the only non-American artists to break into the US Top 10. This reflects a significant preference for homegrown talent within the US radio airwaves.
Across the Atlantic in the United Kingdom, Ed Sheeran, a British star, tops the chart. Also UK Top 10 includes an English singer and songwriter Tom Grennan, DJ and TV Star Joel Corry, a Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi and an English singer and songwriter Becky Hill. The UK list shows a more diverse array of nationalities, including French DJ David Guetta and American artists like Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. This suggests that while the UK has a strong local scene, there is also substantial room for international artists to succeed.
The data compiled by TopHit Spy highlights the impact of cultural and promotional dynamics within the music industry, as well as the tastes and preferences of listeners in different countries. While there are global superstars who perform well in various markets, there's a clear indication of domestic artists enjoying significant popularity within their own countries.
