Swedish audio streaming and media services provider Spotify announced that Lebanese legend Fairuz was the most-streamed female singer in Egypt during 2021.
Despite hardship and setbacks, female Arab artists have always put their best foot forward and inspired millions of fans around the region with their talent. From Umm Kulthum to Nancy Ajram, female artists have played a pivotal role in shaping the region’s music.
With the launch of the 2021 Wrapped campaign and personalized user experience, Spotify celebrated the voice of Arab women by unveiling the top female artists and songs across Egypt.
According to Spotify, the most streamed Arab female singers in Egypt were Fairuz, Sherine, Ruby, Nancy Ajram, and Assala.
While the most streamed songs by Arab female singers in Egypt were “Hetta Tanya” and “Alby Plastic” by Ruby, “Leena Ra2sa” by Carmen Soliman, “Hobbo Gana” by Sherine, and “Kifak Inta” by Fairuz.
Last year, Spotify launched its emerging female artist initiative “Sawtik” to support female artists in the region, making it easier for fans to listen to those talented stars. Through education, networking, and on- and off-platform marketing support, female artists will have a chance to shine like never before as fans are introduced to the rich and diverse music they could offer.
