The best songs in Kenya 2020: There has always been a trend to release names of the greatest songs that did well in a certain period of time. The list could be a weekly chart, a monthly billboard or songs that did well in a certain year.
In most cases, people always want to know which songs did well in a certain year. With the introduction of youtube’s new algorithms, it’s easy to tell which song did well in a certain year.
Google Analytics also helps in picking out which song was a favorite among listeners and viewers in a particular year.
What do we look for when selecting the best song in a certain year?
When choosing the best songs of a certain year, we look at so many things and in different aspects. The online social aspect, and the Dunda aspect.
How people interacted with the song since its release is always a defining factor. How it was received by revelers in night clubs, TV lovers and the Radio fans.
First let’s look at the online social aspect;
We try to rate songs by how many times it was watched or streamed on social platforms. How many people commented and had something nice to say about it. Was it shared? By how many people? Those are some of the things we look at on the social online side.
This comes down to viewers and listeners of music. These are the people who know which song was good and which one was awful. Recently artists on most occasions pay to boost their music to reach more people.
That has rendered the online statistics a bit obsolete. With that said, we prefer looking at how a song was received by Matatu drivers, Boda Boda riders, DJs, Radio and TV fans who request the songs they want to listen to.
With all that taken care of, we can without a doubt give out a list of some of the best songs in any year. Today however were are focusing on one list that has been awaited for a very Long time.
