Summary It’s nearly impossible to turn on the radio and not hear a male artist singing really, really high. Likely he’s a tenor and, more often than not, he’ll sing in falsetto. This isn’t a trend, it has been the status quo for decades. Using the data diving know-how of The Pudding, and drawing on the expertise of a professional opera singer, Anthony Roth Costanzo, I dug into the world of the high male vocal to see how pervasive it’s been in pop music across the decades.
