The 2011 Pop Explosion: mid-year numbers broken down by genre

The 2011 Pop Explosion: mid-year numbers broken down by genre | Concerts and Festivals | Scoop.it
Looking at the top selling digital songs, a full 14 of the top 20 this year are pop tunes, while the remaining six are R&B/hip-hop. Pop siren Katy Perry's "E.T." (featuring Kanye West), is tops, having sold 4.12 million. The highest-ranked R&B title is Chris Brown's "Look at Me Now" (featuring Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes) at No. 8 (2.44 million).

The dominance of pop among song buyers isn't that surprising -- a year ago at this time 11 of the top 20 songs were pop as well. The genre dominates the digital song market: 25% of all songs sold this year were pop. (The next closest genre, in terms of market share, is rock, with 23%.)
