“Inclusion In The Recording Studio” writes Jessie from Hype Media

April 23, 2021

In this paper, USCAnnenberg produced the linked report is to assess gender and race/ethnicity of artists, songwriters, and producers across the 900 most popular songs from 2012 to 2020, based on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Chart. They also evaluated Grammy nominations by gender and race/ethnicity across 5 categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, and Producer of the Year. The key findings show 173 artists appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 Year-End chart in 2020. Of those, 79.8% were men and 20.2% were women. No artists identified as gender non-conforming or non-binary in 2020. 2020 was not meaningfully different than 2019, 2017 or 2012 in the percentage of women artists. You can read the complete results and take-aways here:

Curious to hear the community response to how we can improve the ratios and encourage greater equity and diversity in our industry. If we can move the needle, that would be music to my ears.
