Here Are the Most-Searched Hip-Hop Topics of 2020
With this year’s trip around the sun coming to an end, Google has unveiled the most-searched topics of 2020. While words related to the coronavirus pandemic ended up on the list, many hip-hop topics also appeared. One thing’s for sure: 2020 is undoubtedly the most chaotic year anyone has seen in recent memory.
On Wednesday (Dec. 9), Google released their yearly round-up of search trends. Obviously, coronavirus came in as the No. 1 searched topic of the year, but so did some rap lyrics and concerts from hip-hop moments that took place this year.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” was the most googled song lyrics of the year, with 6ix9ine’s “Gooba,” his first drop after being released from federal prison, trailing close behind at number four. Jack Harlow’s “What Poppin'” also came in at number 10 for the year’s most-searched lyrics.
Live concerts and events may have taken a back seat this year to help slow the spread of COVID-19, but that didn’t Travis Scott from turning lemons into lemonade. Travis’ Fortnite concert was the fourth most searched musical event of the year. The show, which was recently reported to have earned the rapper $20 million, was the only hip-hop show to appear on the roster of concerts.
Tragic moments like the loss of Chadwick Boseman, Naya Rivera, and George Floyd showed up on the losses list. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who won the 2020 presidential election, were the most searched people this year.
