In addition to being a banner year for hip hop, the genre also dominated headlines across mainstream and underground publications alike.

With no shortage of content to talk about, it doesn't come as too much of a surprise that today's most popular artists also generated the most Google searches.

While the music element may be subjective with countless fans weighing in on the debate over who had the best year in 2018, Google has added another uncompromising aspect to the conversation: Hard data.

According to their year-end report; artists such as Cardi B, Travis Scott, Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly, Rick Ross, Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Meek Mill were among the most Googled musicians.

Additionally, a handful of song titles also generated a colossal amount of searches including "Mo Bamba" by Sheck Wes, "God's Plan" by Drake, "This is America" by Childish Gambino, "Killshot" by Machine Gun Kelly and "Lucid Dreams" by Juice WRLD, among others.

In addition to sharing some insight into the recording artists who dominated their search engines this year, Google also shared what TV shows, fashion brands, video games, actors and athletes ranked high on their lists.
