Since we successfully made it to the second quarter of 2021, it's about time to take a look at what's been on everyone's lips this year. And I'm not talking about bubble tea or smash burgers - I'm talking about karaoke songs.

Like 2020, the new year has continued the boom of home karaoke singing. Probably you too have sung with your pals on a video call or browsed the internet for karaoke tracks to set up a home singing session. However, unlike 2020, 2021 might become a big year for karaoke events and venues again. Ya'll ready to jump on karaoke stages and show off what we've been practicing behind the closed doors of our homes since Feb-March 2020?

Unlike 2020, 2021 might become a big year for karaoke events and venues again.

So, what have we been singing this year? Let's see what the Singa karaoke data* says.

Highlights of the top karaoke songs of 2021

Based on the karaoke chart of 2021's first couple of months, it seems that we really loved the 2020, and we're not ready to let it go just yet. Looking at the most sang songs this year, there are a lot of similarities to the 2020 karaoke top list.

Shallow takes the big prize home again being the most sung song. There are no drastic changes in the TOP10, though Alexandra Burke's version of Hallelujah makes its way there, as does Can You Feel the Love Tonight in the style of Elton John, kicking ABBA songs out of the prime dozen.

Get a bucket and a mop - The 2021 karaoke game is looking dripping.

However, there are also interesting newcomers on the top list. On the 46th spot of the list we find the steamy Cardi B & Megan thee Stallion duet WAP that took the world by storm in August 2020. Despite being not-the-most-typical karaoke hit, WAP beat for example the evergreen Africa in the style of TOTO (49th), and Oasis's Wonderwall (47th). Get some bucket and a mop, as the 2021 karaoke game is looking drip-ping. Not surprisingly, Driver's Licence in the style of Olivia Rodrigo also climbed up the karaoke charts quickly following the song's massive success on TikTok and other platforms. Driver's Licence made it to the TOP 100, regardless of being published as late as January 2021.

Let's get into the list then! Here are 50 most sang English karaoke songs on Singa in 2021 from January to mid April. If you'd rather jump directly to singing, go here.

Forecast of the karaoke songs that will make it big this year

We're only 3 and a half months into 2021 - a lot is still to happen, and many songs to be sung. Before we know which songs eventually get stuck in the lips of karaoke singers most, let's make some predictions of the karaoke songs that have all the potential to top the charts this year.

Leave the Door Open

in the style of Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, Silk Sonic

Leave the Door Open is one of the big songs of Spring 2021 that brought us all some much needed good, funky vibes after the long, cold, lonely winter. Once published for karaoke singing on Singa, the song was greeted with big enthusiasm, and I'm guessing it will be one of the karaoke hits for the upcoming summer.


in the style of Aretha Franklin

The much awaited Aretha Franklin's biopic starring the stellar Jennifer Hudson is out in cinemas starting August 2021, and the material we've seen so far kinda leaves no questions about it - we gonna love it. I'm expecting to see Aretha Franklin songs pop up in the karaoke charts after the film's rollout. After Amy documentary we heard Valerie very frequently at karaoke events, and Bohemian Rhapsody has been topping our charts since 2018 when the Bohemian Rhapsody film was released. Maybe it's time for a new film-related chart-topping karaoke song? My bet is on Respect.

Till Forever Falls Apart

in the style of Finneas + ASHE

As Shallow has been keeping the gates open for romantic, yet dramatic pop-ballad duets, Till Forever Falls Apart by ASHE and Finneas (yeah, Billie Eilish's brother) might be the next big duet song to take over karaoke stages around the world. This March-release is a very singable song, and I'm certain it inspires many couples, friends and such duettists to grab the mic.

Other potential karaoke song list climbers are, for example, songs by Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and Duncan Lawrence.

But as we know, nothing is certain, and the biggest karaoke hit of the year might be published tomorrow, in December, or an old song can go viral on TikTok and top the chart completely unpredictably. Eventually, it all comes down to which songs inspire you to sing this year. Have you found a favorite yet?

Happy singing!
