While many artists saw the pandemic as a hindrance and a serious problem for touring and concerts, others saw it as an opportunity to release albums and make the world dance to their songs in the difficult time of quarantine.
Katy Perry, for example, released an 18-song album with negative reviews and very low listening rates, but there are other examples such as J Balvin, who released "Colores" which received double gold and triple platinum certifications with more than 230,000 units sold.
The Weeknd also released his album "After Hours" which reached 270,000 units sold and, in addition, he did not make any collaboration in his 17 songs. Dua Lipa, Maluma, Taylor Swift, Ricky Martin or Black Eyed Peas also released their releases during the forties, with varying degrees of success, but showing the music scene that nothing stands still here and that we have to keep working for the listeners.
