It’s that time of year for and an assortment of most googled lists.  Compiled this year by, a lifestyle website for Black women did the research and came up with a list of the most googled Black women in 2022. They analyzed Google search data for over 100 of the most influential African-American women.

The list a combination of actors, singers, athletes and other powerful women, was surprisingly topped by 26-year-old actress and singer Zendaya with 2.7 million google searches.  Her popularity this year more than likely was bumped by he role in the hit movie Dune and her role on the HBO series Euphoria. 

Second on the list was the GOAT, Serena Williams, who draws attention every year, but this year in particular with her retirement from professional tennis.  Williams, although popular, only had 1.6 million searches, a full 1 million behind Zendaya. 

Third on the list was Meghan Markle, who had a busy year.  For the first time since moving to America they returned to England, not once, but several times, starting with a trip to visit Queen Elizabeth before heading to the Netherlands for the Invictus games.  They were back again in London for the celebration of the Queen’s 70-year reign and then back again for her funeral. 

Fourth on the list was Beyonce and fifth was Michelle Obama, not far without 1.2 million searches.
