How did the DFW artists perform on the charts in 2021?


While everyone was busy trying to figure out what NFTs were all about, Post Malone became one of the few Dallas artists to do the Billboard year-end graphics for 2021.

We know that Post Malone’s most recent album, Hollywood bleeding, was released in 2019, but to defend the punctuality of the rapper raised by Grapevine, he and The Weeknd have just released a collaborative single called “One Right Now”.

The song ranks 21st this week, but given that it has to rival a litany of Christmas carols, it’s no small feat.

Additionally, Posty ranked # 26 on BillboardThe year-end top performer chart, beating artists with much hotter hitting irons such as Ed Sheeran, Young Thug, Machine Gun Kelly and Tyler the Creator.

He also beat the Beatles, ranked No.59 despite their inevitable ubiquity given Peter Jackson’s documentary To recover (and their inevitable general ubiquity always).

Mr. White Iverson’s success this year is by no means an anomaly. At the time of writing, he is the seventh most-streamed artist of all time on Spotify, beating other North Texas Top 300 contenders for the streaming platform such as Demi Lovato (# 58), Usher (# 164) and Kelly Clarkson (# 275).

In short, Post Malone had a good year even if it was calm on the exit front.

With this gem of good news comes the bad, and the bad news is that DFW’s year-end chart presence has been left empty.

On the one hand, we know little about how artists like Post Malone performed on Spotify compared to previous years, as Spotify only released the top 5 artist, song, and album lists (including none include Dallas artists).

Although 2021 saw the release of what is arguably Miranda Lambert’s most inspired work, The bands of Marfa, the Lindale-based country artist ranked No. 91 on the charts. And while the Christmas season is known to catapult festive, evergreen songs and albums to the charts, the Pentatonix album The best of Christmas Pentatonix only ranked at No. 187 on the Billboard List of 200 end-of-year albums. It should be noted that Mariah Carey’s Christmas album ranked 178th and that she is the CEO of Christmas Music.

So, given how relatively sterile this year has been for Dallas’ presence in the annual charts, what music has moved the needle in Our Lord’s Year of 2021?

Well, the # 1 single of 2021 was “Levitating” by Dua Lipa (although it’s not clear if that includes the versions with and without DaBaby), and numbers 2 and 3 are both numbers from l. extraordinary Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd (“Save Your Tears” with Ariana Grande and “Blinded By the Lights”, respectively.)

Meanwhile, Drake got entry # 1 for BillboardThe ranking of the best artists at the end of the year and was followed by the respective Top 5 entries Olivia Rodrigo, The Weeknd, Taylor Swift and Morgan Wallen.

Did Morgan Wallen say the N word in this video? Sure, but a lot of country fans and sycophantic executives in the music industry who want to make money from his success don’t care, and that’s why Wallen’s double album Dangerous is n ° 1 on BillboardThe ranking of the 200 best end-of-year albums, ahead of Rodrigo Sour and the posthumous Pop Smoke album Shoot for the stars, aim for the moon.

But there is a silver lining: The Jonas Brothers and Maren Morris were both cemented in Billboardthe year-end Hot 100 Songs chart. The debut “Leave Before You Love Me,” a collaborative track with famed producer and costume Spirit Halloween Marshmello, ranked at No. 63, as did Morris and Ryan Hurd’s collaborative track “Chasing After You” landed two notches below. above at n ° 61.
