The Top 10 Artists of 2017 have been named by Billboard and they are all men. Don’t worry ladies, we know you’ll rule again. (Wait…I was just reminded that you always rule.) For me it’s hard to believe there isn’t one single female act on the list. It’s even harder to believe that this is the third time the entire Top 10 have been all-male acts or solo men. The last time the guys dominated the year-end chart was way back in 1984. So where’s the female representation? It looks like hip-hop acts had a big voice on the charts and that’s pretty much a male–dominated genre. Plus pop’s two biggest stars, Adele and Taylor Swift, were between albums for most of the chart year. So who’s the big guy winner this year? With his second No. 1 album and a plethora of hit singles including the No. 1 song of the year- Ed Sheeran has been named 2017 Top Artist.  

My year-end show will contain many of the year’s top artists and top hits, but this weekend I’m bringing the current and new musical heat on In The Mix with HK™!
