Local Titans and Emerging Stars

Atif Aslam and Talha Anjum continue to hold their ground at the summit of local artists, accompanied by a constellation of emerging talents like Umair, Abdul Hannan, and Rovalio. Seasoned artists such as Talhah Yunus, Asim Azhar, and the eternal “Shehnshah-e-Qawwali,” Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, affirm their unshakable presence in the hearts of Pakistani music enthusiasts.

Global Harmony in Local Lists

The top artists’ list echoes the eclectic taste of Pakistani listeners, with Arijit Singh claiming the throne, followed closely by Pritam, AP Dhillon, Shubh, and the late Sidhu Moose Wala, whose posthumous releases continue to resonate. Local favorites Atif Aslam and Talha Anjum seamlessly share the limelight with global sensations like Taylor Swift and The Weeknd.

Chart-Topping Tracks: A Melodic Journey

“Kahani Suno 2.0” by Kaifi Khalil emerged as the undisputed champion, not only dominating local charts but also clinching the title of the most-streamed Pakistani song globally. Abdul Hannan’s trio of tracks, “Iraaday,” “Bikhra,” and “Siyah,” along with other fresh voices like AUR’s “Tu Hai Kahan” and Asim Azhar’s “Jo Tu Na Mila,” paint a vivid picture of the diverse musical palette of Pakistani listeners.

Leading Ladies and Musical Maestros

Shae Gill retains her title as the most streamed Pakistani female artist, followed by Momina Mustehsan and the legendary Abida Parveen. The impact of female voices in Pakistan’s music scene is further solidified by the inclusion of talents like Quratulain Balouch, Naseebo Lal, and Aima Baig in the top 10.

Albums That Resonate

Talha Anjum’s “Open Letter,” Hassan & Roshaan’s “Day 5,” and Azaan Sami Khan’s “Main Tera” captivated hearts as the most streamed local albums. “Open Letter” secured the second position in the overall top 5, joining the ranks of international heavyweights like Shubh’s “Still Rollin,” Sidhu Moose Wala’s “Moosetape,” The Weeknd’s “Starboy,” and Arijit Singh’s “Ultimate Love Songs – Arijit Singh.”
