There are literally thousands of new music being released each year. Some tracks go unnoticed, and some achieve legendary status. Some songs make artists and others break artists. If an artist’s song made it into this ‘most searched lyrics’ list of any year, chances are they are quite well off.
A song just cannot make it into the top 10 most searched lyrics of 2018 list. There are a few factors to be met for a song to be ranked here. A song can contain the simplest of lyrics and be a giga hit around the world. This would not necessarily rank that song on this list. Why? Because the lyrics are clearly identifiable, understandable and memorable. On the other hand, a song could be less popular among an entire fan base, but could be one of the most searched songs. Example; a rap beef. There are bound to be many metaphors, personal nudges, backstories involved, that we need to discover the hidden meanings of the lyrics.
