New: Check out top 10 most popular male singers in 2014.
The music industry is an intensive, complex, constantly changing world of success and failures, rumours and scandals, rivalry and enmity. What’s the best about it, however, is that not only women compete to become queens of the stage by any means. The competition between the male singers is not less strong, too. So let’s see who of those, who ruled the music world last year survived and found place in the rank of the Top 10 Male Singers for 2013.
1. Bruno Mars
Surely everyone remembers that song of Travie McCoy ft. Bruno Mars – Billionaire. In fact, this son put the beginning to the real performing career of Bruno and launched him like a rocket into the tops of the ranks. From then on, every single song the Hawaiian singer recorded became a hit! In fact, most of the couples nowadays dance under the melodies like ‘Just the Way You are’, ‘Marry You’ and ‘Grenade’. What we should know about Bruno Mars – he almost won a Grammy for Best Rap Song for his ‘Young, Wild & Free’, but the award eventually went to ‘Niggas in Paris’. Don’t worry, Bruno, we will keep our fingers crossed next year!
Now we are talking about something really good! The South Korean singer PSY has been popular for years in his homeland, but it was for his funny song ‘GANGNAM STYLE’ that he became the most watched performer on YouTube ever. The special dance performed in ‘GANGNAM STYLE’ was performed all over the world, just like the Harlem Shake, and the song has almost 1 700 000 000 views in YouTube for less than a year – an unprecedented record in the history of music. In April PSY released his new hit ‘Gentleman’ which was bound to be a hit before even released. Now PSY performs at a different popular events and is the tourism ambassador of his home South Korea. We can’t wait to see whether PSY will release a new song!
3. Maroon 5
Maroon 5 is one of the older but still active and popular bands on the music stage. Six males, one position in our chart, a lot of cool songs and, of course, a new project – their fifth studio album, which is to be released at some point in 2013. Although they have more romantic and classic songs like ‘Goodnight Goodnight’ and ‘She will be Loved’, their newest hits like ‘Moves Like Jagger’ featuring Christina Aguilera are undisputable success, too. Looking forward to hearing their next album, surely it will be a blockbuster too.
4. David Guetta
One of the other veterans in the music world – David Guetta, who, as it seems, gained most of his popularity recently. He is surely talented, and starts like Rihanna showed that they are of this opinion, too, as David Guetta contributed greatly for her latest album – Unapologetic. He wrote and produced some of the songs and was even featured in the performance next to Rihanna. David is the owner of Jack Back Records, a record label designed solely for the releasing of electronic music. On June 15, 2013 David Guetta performed for the first time his new track, while on a tour with Rihanna. His new single is to be released soon, too.
5. Chris Brown
It seems that, despite the scandals (or maybe just because of them), both Chris Brown and Rihanna are among the Top 10 Singers for 2013. What we know for sure is, although may music fans (especially those, who like Rihanna), dislike Chris Brown, he is going to release his new album, called X, really soon. The exact date is not yet known, but it will be at some point in August or September 2013 and will feature Kendrick Lamar. The lead single of the album is called ‘Fine China’. Perhaps Chris Brown has become gentle and romantic after all, hasn’t he?
One of the innovators on the hip-hop stage, who is always open for new contacts and new mutual performances – Pitbull. He is known with his always positive attitude on stage and with his fresh and modern style. One thing is for sure – Pitbull bears no prejudice towards anyone. He has performed with Akon, Lil Jon, Nayer, Kesha, Christina Aguilera, Ne-Yo, Shakira and many other celebrities. Well, if he dislikes someone, this is Lil Wayne, but no one would argue that Lil Wayne deserves the diss track Pitbull created for him. We are looking forward to the future hits of Pitbull and wish him to always be so positive!
Another band that is on the stage since year 1994 (just like Maroon 5) and is not going to stop performing. Why should they, when the audience love them? If you are a fan of theirs, have in mind that the band is going to tour around the USA between July 17 and August 24 and they will hold 19 concerts in different cities. We are waiting for a new album, too, but it is not sure when exactly it will come out. Hope it’s sooner!
8. Adam Lambert
Sometimes he is scandalous and sometimes we can’t understand him, but Adam Lambert has talent. And if you think he is out of his mind, just listen to his cover of ‘Mad World’ and you will see that he is really sensitive, good person in fact. His popularity increases more and more with every next song and he is surely suitable for this chart. Adam Lambert now performs at different events and he won the award for Favourite International Artist at the 17th Chinese Music Awards. We are looking forward to more music by him!
Fortunately, after all his success last year, Gotye is still on the stage and is not just ‘Somebody that we used to know’. He is young, he is attractive, he is an Australian and he is bound to be a star. After his success with the song we mentioned above, he had a great world tour starting from Korea and really going round the whole world! We hope we hear more from Gotye soon, although he hasn’t announced any plans for further albums.
Just like Pitbull, Ne-Yo is all about performing with as many other singers and artists as possible. He is good at playing the piano and the guitar, but his strongest talent is surely singing. He has performed with a lot of the big names out there, including Kanye West and Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa, David Guetta, Pitbull, Chris Brown, Rick Ross and much more. The list is really long and we are glad that we can hear him performing in various styles – he is really good at fitting in! Maybe you will like to hear that Ne-Yo is now working on a new song and again – not alone, but with Cher Lloyd. The song’s called ‘It’s All Good’ – let’s hope it’s good as all his other songs!
All in all, a lot of singers are competing to enter the chart of the Top 10 Male Singers for 2013. However, those 10 guys we chose to acquaint you with (although you’ve certainly know and have listened to all of them on different occasions), have proven that they are really good professionals and nothing will stop them from performing. And we are glad to know this, because we would miss them otherwise. Good luck, guys!
