Top 9 pop stars by #musicmonday popularity

Handling Comms During COVID-19? We've compiled our best resources.

 If, like me, you consider yourself hopelessly out of touch when it comes to pop music, perhaps you have attempted to bring yourself up to speed with the Twitter hashtag #musicmonday (what’s a hashtag? Read Heidi’s post here). People include the #musicmonday tag when tweeting about their favorite bands and artists, or the ones they’re listening to at the moment. So, I thought, why not use the Cision Social Media Dashboard to analyze this morning’s tweets to find which artists are the most popular?  

These are the 9 artists who appeared in at least 1 percent of the group of 5,000 tweets containing the hashtag #musicmonday that I analyzed this morning. The links will take you to MySpace pages (yep, a MySpace presence is still a prerequisite for any well-known musician, a fact perhaps solidified by News Corp.’s acquisition today of the iLike social network for musical acts and fans).

  1. Michael Jackson 4.2%
  2. Nas 4.0%
  3. Kanye West 3.8%
  4. Jonas Brothers 1.6%
  5. Keri Hilson 1.6%
  6. Lady Gaga 1.6%
  7. Rihanna 1.5%
  8. Black Eyed Peas 1.3%
  9. Gucci Mane 1.2%
