Categorised by regions and genres, the charts are becoming the region’s very own answer to the Billboard 100 or, better yet, Top of the Pops.
Article Body: There was nothing quite like the tense countdown to the Top of the Pops in the UK, with a nation holding its collective breath awaiting the big reveal of the #1 hit of the week, or the endless stream of pride you would feel as your favourite rapper tore across to the summit of Billboard’s Hot 100. Now, given the absence of any such Rolling Stone chart-equivalent in the Middle East, Anghami has stepped in to give us daily and weekly charts showcasing the most streamed songs on the platform.
With different charts aggregated by genre, country, region, or even a mix of top such-and-such-genre in such-and-such-country, Anghami is helping listeners and artists alike by providing a centralised source of the tracks of the day, week, and year.
The charts seek to serve as a platform boosting the efforts of local artists and propelling their works into a spotlight, motivating them to conquer the charts. The range of genres—from Arabic Indie to Mahraganat, from the finest Trap in Egypt to Sudan’s bursting R&B scene and everything in between—makes it easier for listeners to hear the diversity of sounds coming out of the region and discover new talent.
