Top Male Singers 2016 - 2017

2016 was a top year for new songs and some stood out more than others, I still enjoy Sam Smith with that soft powerful voice, haven't heard many new ones from him in 2016 after the problems he had with his voice.

It will be interesting to see what 2017 brings us, it was very hard to pick the most popular male singers, I came across so many amazing singers and songs.

My pick is Ed Sheeran, his voice has matured nicely, he was still coming up with very nice songs in 2016 -17, he was enjoyed by everyone when touring the southern hemisphere, he will be back again.

I still like hearing Bruno Mars singing, it is a shame he has had problems in his life, so we never got to see him in the southern hemisphere in 2015, I enjoy listening to the lyrics in his songs, they have so much meaning.

Justin Bieber is back, hopefully, he has got himself sorted out and return with a renewed outlook on life, he was touring New Zealand singing in Auckland at the weekend 18- 19 March 2017.

One Direction was going well for the young teens at the start on 2015. On 13 January 2016, a report claiming that the group's hiatus would become a permanent split, with a "source" citing that each of the four remaining group members did not renew their contracts following the completion of the on the Road Again Tour in October 2015. Not sure what they are doing now. Shame!

I am from the older generation but I enjoy listening to popular singers, their voices are powerful and music very moving, most of the music I can sing along with, it keeps me young.

Popular Male Singers 2017

There is such a great line-up of popular male singers, with new one's arriving every day, if you have another male singer that you like, please leave a comment and I will investigate them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Which Male Singer do you think will be the top?

Sam Smith

Sam Smith - Writing's On The Wall

Bruno Mars - My pick for most popular male singer.

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars was born Peter Gene Hernandez on October 8, 1985, in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Just love his singing - that voice.

There are many male popular singers but for me, Bruno Mars is the Best.

He sends cold shivers down my spine, his lyrics have so much meaning to the words, very powerful.

Stop a few minutes and listen to that voice - I'm sure you will agree.

On June 24th, 2015, Chris Brown released a new song titled "Liquor". Shortly after, it was announced that Liquor was the first single off his yet-to-be-titled seventh studio album, to be released in the Fall of 2015.

Looking forward to this.

Justin Bieber.

Justin has been a teenage heart-throb for a few years now, and most likely will be enjoyed by teenagers for some time still if someone else doesn't come along and push him aside, he has been having a bit of a thrashing from the media lately, but isn't that pretty true of every singer these day.

The teens still enjoy his songs, this year 2015 he is having a bit of a rest, I think myself as an older lover of modern music that it is good for him.

Let's see what 2016 brings from Justin after a rest.

Enjoy.

      I must say that I do like One Direction, my little girl loves them too. There are not many English speakers singers I like nowadays, and there are just a few I like that sing in Spanish, like Ricky Martin, Alejandro Fernandez, Luis Miguel, Enrique Iglesias. As per English speakers I also like U2, Michael Jackson, etc, and yes from the new young guys One Direction.

      Hi. First things first, I must really commend you for putting this lens. I read your intro and it says you are a great grandmother too and its very easy sometimes to say that the modern day music is more noise, not like the "old days" ... blah blah . But you rose above all that and selected modern day singers. I actually called my 18 year daughter to show her your lens and she too was just ....."wow" . Keep it up. It shows you love music. Period. I like Bruno Mars. He's talent. Thanks for sharing this with us.

      That's the only reason I knew what going on it the music world.

      In your poll it is hard to decide which one do I like... I like almost everyone of them (OK maybe not Justin Bieber ;) ). Bruno Mars and Chris Brown are certaintly my favorites! And as I could see you also added groups (One Direction, Maroon 5), so you could have adden Bon Jovi as well :)

      Since becoming a middle school and high school substitute teacher, I've learned from my students about several of the male artists on this page. It seems to me that Justin Bieber inspires the most passion among my students - many love him and many don't. I'm afraid that I'm old enough that my favorite male singer is Frank Sinatra :)

      That's nice to know, taking Ed Sheeran to school with your son, did you think in those days that he would be such a popular singer especially with the teenagers.

      He was in New Zealand recently, I believe he went home with a new tattoo he had done, while on his weekend trip between shows, before he left.

      @JoshK47: Thanks Josh for replying. It would have been nice if you had named the singers you enjoy listening to, as I said to a comment below, about wanting ideas to do some more of these lens. Happy days singing to the music you like. We all need a little joy in our lives.

      @DuaneJ: Thank you so much for commenting, that was why I asked that question. Because I wanted to get a idea of what my viewers liked, so can set up some more of these great singers, that bring joy to our lives everyday, by giving us something to sing about. It brings happiness into our life.

      Can't say I'm a fan of anyone on this list, personally - but I must say, you did quite a nice job putting it together! :)

      I'm more into Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen but this is a list of some of the most popular singers this year. Very well-presented.
