Here Are The Aussie Female Artists Dominating Spotify

Written by Emmy Mack on March 8, 2016

International Women’s Day is in full swing, and as part of the celebrations the Aussie music industry is giving deserved kudos to all of the boss ladies who’ve continued to achieve great things in the face of what is often a notoriously dude-dominated industry.

Triple J is leading the charge, bringing “girls to the front” with a day filled with content and programming exclusively masterminded by fabulous females. And now, Spotify is also getting in on the action by launching a suite of new playlists celebrating the streaming site’s top female talent.

One such playlist pays homage to the top 10 Aussie female artists on Spotify currently being streamed all over the world, and the result is a delightfully mixed bag of talent.

Without giving away too many spoilers, the top 10 is rounded out by internationally renowned pop heavyweights, rappers, indie darlings, hotshot producers, acoustic troubadours and former Aus Idol contestants.

Translation: if you don’t love ’em, then your mum probably will.

And in the spirit of honouring other influential gals, Spotify have also unveiled their full Women In Music & Culture series today, dedicated to recognising “iconic and rising female artists and authors across music and literature”.

According to Spotify users around the world, Rihanna is the most listened-to female artist, followed by Ariana Grande and Beyoncé.

Check out the Top 10 Aussie Female Artists on Spotify in the gallery below, followed by the Top 10 Female Artists Globally and Most Listened-To Females On Spotify here in Australia (hint: there’s one big overlap with all three), or else check out Spotify’s full Women In Music & Culture series here.

Happy International Women’s Day y’all!
