The use of profanity in music does seem to be more common than in the past.
And music fans certainly have an idea of which artists are more likely to wear in their music than others.
Which musician uses the most profanity in his or her music?
At Home Connections, an authorized AT&T retailer, decided to find out. The firm said it “looked at the top 200 songs for the past year on Spotify to determine the most popular recording artists.
From there, we removed repeat artists and compiled a list of artists that had made the top 200 at least 100 times in the past year (Spotify updates the top 200 weekly). Next, we used Genius to scrape all of those artists’ lyrics, and then determined which curse words appeared the most. Finally, we use the word count and the number of curse words to determine the percent of curse words in the artist’s lyrics/songs.
In total, we analyzed 1,320,336 words in song lyrics to determine which artists had the highest and lowest percentage of swear words.”
So, who used the most wear words?
The artist with the highest percentage of curse words per word was – DaBaby.
Coming in second place was Juice WRLD and in third was Post Malone. The only woman in the Top 10 was Doja Cat, who ranked in fourth place. She was followed by J Cole, The Kid LAROI, Lil Uzi Vert, Polo G, Travis Scott and Lil Baby.
At Home Connections said DaBaby was number one for the second year in a row.
“DaBaby clearly sees no need to keep his lyrics family friendly — he had the highest percentage of curse words per lyric at 3.16% and 2,654 total swears.”
On the flip side, the artist who cursed the least in song lyrics is – Bruno Mars.
In second place is Justin Bieber followed by Taylor Swift in third. (Yep, T-Swift wears more than the Biebs).
The rest of the Top 10 on that list were – Olivia Rodrigo, Dua Lip, Billie Eilish, Morgan Wallen, The Weeknd, The Neighborhood and Kanye West.
