Male artists are dominating the industry at the moment. Drake has been at Number One for so long that it’s hard to imagine anyone else there. Elsewhere, at the time of writing, there is only one woman in the iTunes Top 10 (Christine and The Queens, with the almost unfairly good ‘Tilted’).
Along with all the men at the top of the charts, there is a whole spectrum of incredible male talent that will be dominating the airwaves and the clubs over the next 18 months. For example, Troye Sivan looks set to conquer the world with his brand of power pop (and his unwillingness to pander for a radio hit). Or other artists like Tor Miller or Leo Stannard, who you will gag for if you love Ed Sheeran or James Bay. Then there are the men producing absolute jams, such as Snakehips and The Chainsmokers.
