Shakira Is Google’s Most-Searched Artist For 2020

Latin music is clearly having a moment and it is a lasting moment. That is just a fact and the numbers how that. One of the most iconic moments of 2020, and one of the few pre-Covid moments, was J.Lo and Shakira’s Super Bowl half time show. This obviously led to a lot of searches on Google for…Shakira.

Shakira is the most searched artist of 2020 on Google.

The Colombian singer had a strong start to 2020 with her Super Bowl performance with J.Lo. The show got a lot of people’s attention as people were stunned to see Latinas owning the stage. The FCC received thousands of calls complaining that the performance was overly sexual.

The kind of attention brought a lot of recognition to Shakira. We were then treated to months of behind the scene moments and learning what the two superstars talked about pre-show.

This isn’t the first time that Shakira has been at the top of Google searches.

Shakira was more Googled this year than August Alsina, Adele, Doja Cat, and Grimes, who made up the rest of the top 5. This year saw some very specific searches because of Covid and it seems likely that Shakira’s popularity is tied to the Super Bowl performance. It was the only big event the U.S. was able to enjoy before the pandemic shut down the nation. With no federal response, the U.S. has been paused since March so that performance is the last moment of entertainment so many of us remember.

Way to go, Shakira.

You have been rocking our ears for years. There hasn’t been a year that we haven’t been dancing to Shakira’s words whether they are in English or Spanish. From “Ciega, Sordomuda” to “Whenever, Wherever” to “La Bicicleta,” we love to enjoy Shakira’s music.

Just for fun, let’s enjoy a moment of Shakira and J.Lo’s Super Bowl show.

There were so many moments during this show that are everything to us. We got to see Puerto Rican pride and intense booty shaking that only Shakira and J.Lo could do. It was a good moment leading into the world we are all living in today.
