Wegz is most streamed artist in Egypt during 2021 for second consecutive year: Spotify
Published in Daily News Egypt on 01 - 12 - 2021

For the third time in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Spotify is celebrating what Egypt has been listening to whilst recognizing the unique aspects which define 'totally normal' in 2021, announcing Wegz the most streamed artist in Egypt for second year in a row.
With his approachable and distinctive style, Wegz cemented his title of most-streamed artist once again in Wrapped 2021. Four of his songs were among the 10 most-streamed songs in Egypt: "Asyad El Soot" with LZHYMR, "Msh Fair", "3afareet El Asphalt" and "Hustla".
Spotify announced on Wednesday the top artists, albums, songs, playlists, and podcasts genres from the creators that helped soundtrack the year for more than 381 million users worldwide.
Spotify also launched its personalized user experience and Wrapped campaign inspired by its listeners in Egypt in 2021.
Hip-Hop emerged as the clear winner this year, with several of the genre's songs and artists dominating the most-streamed lists. This genre has notably evolved in recent years from being influenced mainly by American Trap to adopting a more Mahraganat sound and lyrics that strike a closer chord with local listeners.
An example of this is "Keify Keda" by Wegz with Disco Misr which took off by resonating heavily with Gen Zs across social media platforms. Furthermore, Wrapped results reveal that Spotify's playlist "Melouk El Scene" is the most popular genre playlist in Egypt followed by "Aqwa Almaharagant".
Commenting on the news, Wegz said, "I can't explain how happy I am to be Spotify's top streamed artist in Egypt for the second year in a row. A big thank you to the best fans in the world, wouldn't be here without you!"
Marwan Pablo, rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer who had previously announced his retirement in March 2020 came back even stronger this year in Wrapped 2021, taking over the most-streamed song list in Egypt with "Ghaba". Additionally, his song "CTRL" was the most-played song on Spotify during the Egyptian mummy parade, underscoring his role as a cultural influencer.
Marwan Moussa, who ranked fifth among the most-streamed artists in Egypt, won first place for the most-streamed album Florida. With 13 tracks on the album, "Tesla" ranks seventh in the list of the most-streamed songs. Moussa recently released his single "Hustle" with Alyoungofficial and Randarofficial.
Meanwhile, Amr Diab maintains his position as the second most-streamed artist in Egypt, and his album Sahran is the second most-streamed album this year. Hamza Namira has made it to the top five with his album Mawloud Sanat 80, which has become the third most-streamed album in Egypt. Megastar Mohamed Hamaki also made a strong impression on listeners this year, earning two positions for his albums Ya Fatenny and Kol Yom Men Dah.
