Shakira comes top of the popstar moms on music streaming service


Shakira tops the charts as the most-streamed musician mum.

According to representatives for music streaming company Deezer, the Colombian singer has beaten out fellow popstars Adele and Beyonce to become the most-streamed mother in a survey celebrating superstar mums.

Shakira, who has had five top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S., including a No.1 with Hips Don’t Lie featuring Wyclef Jean, is a mom to sons Milan and Sasha, who she shares with her Spanish soccer star partner Gerard Pique.

The snake-hipped hitmaker beat out Beyonce, who has had six number ones and 18 top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100, in the influential chart.

Deezer polled music-lovers in the U.K. ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday (11Mar18) to reveal its most-streamed artists balancing creating hit records with motherhood.

“Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate all those mothers who, whilst dedicating their lives to their families, also brighten our days with our favorite tunes and toe-tapping beats,” said Dom Wallace, Global Pop Editor at Deezer.

Pink and Britney Spears also made the top 10, while Britain’s Lily Allen and Cheryl could only manage appearances at number 14 and 19, respectively.
