Akon also made the list of the most popular male singers in the world and has remained one of the most influential in the world of music.

He is also the most streamed on Spotify and the most sought-after Kpop idol on YouTube.


There’s no doubt that B.T.S. is one of the most popular bands in the world right now. The trendy sensations were the quickest group since the Beatles to score four U.S. number-one albums in two years and were named the ‘Princes of Pop’ by Time magazine in 2019.
