Meanwhile some love music to an extent that they really want to contribute to the music world. These people end up taking steps to make music as their career, which is fully out of genuine passion.

So they choose music as a medium. They work on music as a band or solo singer. Most of the time people end up being a solo artist because it has a set of benefits. The profits and revenues are high for solo artists. Sometimes it is tough to meet a person who is like minded, this is another reason why people end up taking up solo careers. 

Do solo artists do everything themselves?

When we hear solo artists we can think that they do all the work by themselves. But most of the time it is not the case. Making music is not only singing the final verse. It involves so many back end tasks like composing the track, writing the lyrics, recording, shooting the visual song, editing and promoting it.

All these are not done by these famous singers themselves. They concentrate on the most crucial parts like lyrics, composing and singing. For doing the rest they hire people and delegate the tasks. Sometimes they tie up with entertainment companies like Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and so on to give the best quality music. 

In this article we will list the top solo artists who established themselves as famous singers.
