The Qobuz Top Tracks Albums and Artists 2021 in the UK


Classic tracks and artists remain in the top spots but new artists are making their mark. The Beatles top the list for the most played bands of 2021, with Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, London Grammar and The Rolling Stones all making the top 5. London Grammar had the most streamed album of the year with “Californian Soil” and their song of the same name was the second most streamed track of 2021. London Grammar have come from strength to strength in the last year and their presence in the top bands, top albums and the top tracks of 2021 is a clear example of their growth.


Taylor Swift has taken first place in the Top Female Artists list, closely followed by Norah Jones, Diana Krall, Lana Del Rey and Joni Mitchell all in the top 5. Taylor Swift’s re-recordings “Fearless (Taylors Version)” and “Red (Taylors Version)” have helped her reach the top spot. Her presence in the Top Female Artists shows a possible shift in the listening habits of Qobuz users who are broadening their music tastes.

The Qobuz Top Female Artists of 2021 are:

Taylor Swift

Norah Jones

Diana Krall

Lana Del Rey

Joni Mitchell

Melody Gardot

Billie Eilish

Amy Winehouse

Ella Fitzgerald


“Unmissable stars and young talents meet in the Top Female Artists of 2021 in a collection of musicians who could not be more eclectic. Between the pop mixed with folk of Taylor Swift and the sensual jazz of Norah Jones, the vintage soul of Amy Winehouse, the melancholic pop of Billie Eilish and the intimate folk of Joni Mitchell, the Top Female Artists of 2021 may differ in many ways but they all show a common theme in expressing themselves through the music they have made.” says Marc Zisman, Chief Editor at Qobuz.


The Top Male Artists included many classic and timeless musicians. David Bowie took the top spot with Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Van Morrison all in the top 5. German-British composer Max Richter was the second most streamed male artist of 2021. His album, “Exiles” released this year, is a clear favourite with Qobuz listeners with the track “Richter: Exiles” being the most streamed of 2021.

The Qobuz Top Male Artists of 2021 are:

David Bowie

Max Richter

Bob Dylan

Neil Young

Van Morrison

Bruce Springsteen

Miles Davis

Elton John

Víkingur Ólafsson

Eric Clapton

Marc Zisman, Chief Editor at Qobuz  told us: “Five years after his death, David Bowie, whose albums are almost all available in Hi-Res quality, remains as popular as ever on Qobuz. It is also no surprise to find Neil Young in the Top Male Artists of 2021, his music has shown itself to be timeless and Young himself is passionate about Hi-Res. This year also marked 30 years since the acclaimed Jazz musician Miles Davis died, yet his discography (of which is almost all available in Hi-Res) has been  proven to possess an eternal modernity. Finally, it is Max Richter’s neo-classic which makes a remarkable entry into the Top Male Artists of 2021.”
