Who run the world? Girls! Sure, but when it comes to pop music, there are also some boys who are more than deserving of our undivided attention. If it’s not their mesmerizing musical talent that’s got you going, then it’s the perfect bodies and dashing looks that make your jaw drop, or even both in some cases. The world of pop isn’t reserved for girls only, guys have been topping the charts, breaking records and keeping the gender game balanced, and these 10 hottest male pop stars are here to prove that!
10 – Zayn Malik
The offspring of One Direction, Zayn Malik managed to build up quite an impressive solo career in the short period after leaving the band.

Zayn’s latest collaboration with Taylor Swift is still rocking the charts.
9 – The Weeknd
Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, hasn’t been on the scene for a long time, but has already managed to propel himself to the top. It seems like every song he releases becomes an instant hit, so it wasn’t all about the unusual hairstyle like some people thought. If a tune has his name on it, you can bet it’s going to be big. His unique color of the voice has many people quivering, but he fell in love with just one girl – Selena Gomez.
8 – Calvin Harris
The Scottish hunk, who is also a record producer, DJ, singer and songwriter, Calvin Harris is the mastermind behind many of the biggest pop hits.

6 – Justin Bieber
Love him or hate him, Justin Bieber is here to stay. His popularity has been unyielding ever since “Baby” hit the charts back in 2010.
