It's year-end roundup season! It's time to look back on 2019 and reflect on what defined the year and why. We made our own contributions to the conversation with our #HOTNEW19 campaign. We listed the hottest songs, the hottest hip-hop albums and the hottest R&B albums of the year. Spoiler alert: we got some more recaps coming. In the meantime, you could check out Twitter's #ThisHappened in 2019 stats (encompassing January 1 to November 15). Drake, Rihanna, Cardi B, Beyoncé & Kanye West were among the top trending musicians and one could predict that will remain the case in years to come. Aside from analytics regarding entertainment and sports, Twitter also revealed that the ridiculous attempt to get that photo of an egg to be the most retweeted tweet of all-time did not break the record, but was the most retweeted of the year (957.6K).
