The 2020 pop masterpieces that we've had on repeat.
While we've been forced to party in the comfort of our own living rooms over the course of 2020, that doesn't mean we haven't had fun. The pop world has continued to push out hit after hit, many of which has kept smiles on our faces on the days when we didn't think it were even possible...

As we approach the end of a very unusual year we take a look at the artists you've Googled the most in 2020.
After a crazy year of CoVID19 enforced lockdowns this year's most searched for things on Google were likely to have been skewed somewhat by the abnormality of the circumstances. Joe Wicks certainly got people interested in his fitness routines whilst banana bread and sourdough recipes were de rigueur. Among Us rose to the top of the gaming pile whilst the how to's list included, how to cut men's hair and how to make hand sanitizer. People we'd previously never heard of became household names, including Joe Exotic and Carol Baskin, and sadly, others like Caroline Flack were searched for altogether different reasons.
Politics played a huge part in driving our searches with Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Boris Johnson and Kanye West leading the way and the Black Lives Matter movement came to the fore, prompting many searches including Juneteenth.
Of course our main focus was on Coronavirus which, as was to be expected, topped the overall most searched for topic on Google in the UK. In entertainment there were a few obvious chart toppers but also a few wild cards. Let's take a look at who you searched for in 2020.

It's time to start letting women be empowered by their sexual attitudes.
It's difficult to believe that now, in 2020, women are still having to defend themselves for talking about their enjoyment of sex proudly and publicly. A woman expressing her sexuality is in danger of being criticised for doing so by both conservative groups and feminists. They are accused of objectifying themselves and other women and treated as though a healthy sexual appetite reduces their worth as a human being.

When Cardi B dropped her single WAP with Megan Thee Stallion last month (August 7th), everyone was shocked. It wasn't like she was the first woman to release a song about sex, but to do so so explicitly with no attempt to diffuse the language into something more palatable is rare to say the least.
The week's music news rounded up, including a potential headline slot at Worthy Farm for the Spice Girls and Cardi B's split from Offset.
Spice Girls TO HEADLINE GLASTONBURY?
The Spice Girls reunion next summer could be about to get even bigger, with new reports that the band could headline 2019’s Glastonbury Festival.
The reunited group – minus Victoria Beckham – could be set to bring girl power to Worthy Farm in June next year to take one of the two remaining headline slots, after grime megastar Stormzy was confirmed as the first headliner a few weeks back.
The rapper was up in court regarding her arrest over a nightclub incident in August.
Cardi B endured a decidedly mixed day on Friday, finding out that she had been nominated for five Grammy awards shortly after appearing in court in relation to a charge of assault regarding an incident in a strip club.
The 25 year old star discovered that she was nominated for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Album and Best Pop Duo/Group performance for her collaboration with Maroon 5 on ‘Girls Like You’.
However, it went down on the same day that she was appearing in court, over an incident on August 29th where she allegedly attacked two bartenders at Angels Strip Club. The ‘Bodak Yellow’ star was later arrested and charged on October 1st on suspicion of assault and reckless endangerment.

The rapper handed herself in weeks after the incident in New York.
She's only been in the public eye for three years and already Cardi B is stacking up some controversy behind her. This week it was reported that she handed herself into a police station in Queens, after she was involved in a brawl which took place at a New York strip joint this summer.

The 25-year-old Bronx rapper spoke to police yesterday (October 1st 2018) and ended up being charged with two misdemeanour counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanour count of assault by the NYPD, according to CNN. Apparently, two bartenders were assaulted.

The new mom had been due to play 24 dates with Mars on his North American tour in September.
A few weeks after welcoming her first baby into the world, Cardi B has announced that she’s decided to cancel all of her upcoming autumn tour dates with Bruno Mars, admitting that she’s “underestimated this whole mommy thing”.
The chart-topping rapper gave birth to a baby girl named Kulture earlier this month on July 10th, with her husband Offset from hip-hop trio Migos. Cardi had been due to hook up with Bruno Mars for the North American leg of his 24K Magic tour in the autumn, but she’s not ready to leave her baby at such a young age.
“I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that six weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically,” the 25 year old star told her fans on Instagram. “I also thought that I'd be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”
The chart-topping rapper is responding to a lawsuit lodged against her by her former manager Klenord 'Shaft' Raphael' in April.
Superstar rapper Cardi B has launched a counter-lawsuit against her former manager, whom she claims was “disloyal and deceitful” and even tried to control her romantic life.
Back in April this year, Klenord “Shaft” Raphael had sued the star, real name Belcalis Almanzar, for $10 million claiming that he had been “frozen” out of her career after she exploded into the mainstream over the last year. Raphael claimed credit for discovering the star, and sought to enforce the rapper's management agreement with his company WorldStar that entitled it to 20% of her gross income. He also alleged that Cardi defamed him by telling people that he stole money from her.
Three months later, chart-topper Cardi is looking to have all management and recording agreements made with Raphael declared void by launching a counter-suit worth $15 million, which she filed in court on Thursday (July 5th), according to Variety.

The superstar rapper is expecting her first baby in July.
Cardi B has made the announcement that many have been expecting – she’s cancelling the remainder of her summer tour dates because of her advancing pregnancy.
The ‘Bodak Yellow’ star, 25, took to Instagram to tell her fans that she won’t be fulfilling her scheduled summer tour dates beyond this weekend’s Broccoli City Festival in Washington, D.C. as she enters the third trimester of her pregnancy.
“Broccoli fest will be my last performance for a little while and everything. Because you know shawty keep growin',” the rapper said in a video yesterday. “I be looking like I be moving and everything but in reality, a bitch barely can breathe!”
