Who is the Most Googled Musician for 2022?

New research has revealed the most Googled musician of 2022 in America, with Taylor Swift taking the top spot.


The research conducted by celebrity news site CelebTattler analyzed Google search data for over 150 of the most influential musicians since January 1st 2022 to determine which celebrity was the most talked about of the year.


The study revealed Taylor Swift as the most Googled musician of the year with 2.1 million average searches each month of 2022, in America. Swift recently broke records (and Ticketmaster) after the release of her latest studio album Midnights and the announcement of her Eras tour.


Harry Styles received the second highest number of Google searches in America throughout 2022. The British born singer and actor found himself at the center of drama during the promotional tour of Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling. The star, who is currently on tour, received 2.09 million searches per month from Americans.


Kanye West is the third most Googled musician overall. West has been Googled 2.05 million times per month this year. West hit the headlines this year due to many controversial social media posts, mostly related to his former wife Kim Kardashian and her recent partner, Pete Davidson. Travis Scott ranks fourth with 1.95 million monthly searches to his name, likely as a result of the Astroworld tragedy that made news around the world earlier this year.


The fifth most Googled musician of 2022 is Rihanna. Rihanna, who gave birth to her first child this year, was announced as the Superbowl half-time act for 2023. Rihanna has been Googled 1.77 million times per month on average this year in America.


Pop sensations, Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande rank sixth and seventh respectively. Billie Eilish has been Googled 1.76 million times by Americans each month whilst this year, Ariana Grande has been Googled an average of 1.68 million times per month in 2022.


The eighth most Googled musician of the year is Selena Gomez. Gomez released new music alongside her tell-all documentary My Mind and Me this year, detailing her mental health struggles whilst battling Lupus. Gomez has been Googled 1.51 million times per month this year. Following slightly behind, is Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber who ranks ninth and has been Googled 1.49 million times per month by Americans this year.


Dua Lipa rounds out the top ten most Googled musicians list, being Googled 1.44 million times per month on average. Dua Lipa spent the year touring America on her Future Nostalgia tour whilst also collaborating with music legend Elton John.


Commenting on the study, a spokesperson for CelebTattler said:


“This year has been a fantastic year for music fans across America with record breaking albums and singles coming from the likes of Taylor Swift, Harry Styles and more. With the music award season in full swing, it will be interesting to see if the most Googled musicians of the year end up winning the most awards too.”
