Elaine Is Currently The Most Streamed Female Artiste In South Africa


South African songstress Elaine is at the moment the most streamed female musician on all three of Apple Music’s ‘Top Mzansi Females’ charts.

The 21-year old musician since bursting on to the scene with the single “You are the One” in 2019 and her debut EP “Elements” has been achieving a lot of great feats. She was recently announced as part of Apple Music’s “Visionary Women” Campaign and has topped the lists on Apple Music’s “Top Mzansi Female Artists of 2020“, “Top Mzansi Female Albums of 2020” and “Top Mzansi Female Singles of 2020” charts. 


“My EP, Elements, means so much to me,” Elaine said. “I gave it all my love and passion and to receive it tenfold from those who love and appreciate me and my music, is the greatest gift I could ever ask for.”

Elaine became the first independent female South African musician to top the Apple Music Album charts in November 2019 with her debut body of work— Elements.
