Same song, different verse — quite literally, it turns out. On Monday (March 8th), the University of Southern California's Annenberg Institute released its latest report on music creator demographics, finding that women still make up meager percentages of artists, songwriters, and producers on music charts and award-nomination slates, marking "no meaningful and sustained increase" in the number of female musicians in the male-governed music-making business in close to a decade. The fourth annual report , conducted by USC 's Annenberg Inclusion Initiative with funding from Spotify, examined the gender and race of artists, songwriters, producers, and other creators across 900 top songs in the last nine years; across 2012 to 2020, women comprised a total 21.6% of all artists, 12.6% of all songwriters, and 2.6% of all producers. Researchers Stacy Smith, Katherine Pieper, Marc Choueiti, Karla Hernandez, and Kevin Yao parsed data from the Billboard Hot 100 year-end charts and the Grammy Awards' major nominee lists to examine the paucity of female creators on an annual basis.
