Apple’s Shazam app predicts these artists will be big in 2023

Shazam, the magical Apple-owned app that can identify a song by listening to it, can be an interesting source of data. What songs are people Shazaming the most? And how do things differ from territory to territory?

Based on the curiosity of music fans collated by Shazam taken in cafes, stores, from TV and TikTok, and just overhearing something out in public, the app predicts that these artists could explode in the coming months.

  • Ice Spice (US)
  • charlieonafriday (US)
  • Benson Boone (US)
  • Young Miko (Puerto Rico)

There’s a playlist of 50 possible breakout stars available on Apple Music. Artists come from Japan, Spain, France, Nigeria, Spain, Colombia and more.

How good are these predictions? Last year, half of Shazam’s picks went on to end up on top 200 national charts.

  • If you mention about an artist to be big in 2023, you must have this name in #1- Dimash Qudaibergen!
    This name is already big and going to be much, much bigger….. This 28 years old singer from Kazakhstan is the artist of the future. The way he controls his more than 6 octaves he poses, the way he delivers his songs to the audience and his choice of the songs he performs with the deep meaning – all that has no comparison with anybody known to the world.
    Please make your own opinion by listening to his art

  • Dimash is my favorite singer , I’m addicted to watching and listening to him. No one compares to him❤️

  • Dimash… Almost unknown in UE… What a shame! Best singer in the World and probably GOAT.
