    looking for synonyms of "stronger"

    I am going to write down a sentence below.

    (1) This singer is getting more popular worldwide.

    I am going to rephrase it as follows.

    restatement

    (2) The popularity of this singer is getting stronger worldwide.

    Can I use adjectives, such as "more intense" or "more dominant", to replace "stronger" in the restatement?

    If these adjectives do not work, could someone give me the correct adjectives?

    Thanks a lot.

    Have you tried a dictionary or thesaurus?

    I am not a teacher.

    I don't think a thesaurus will do you much good because the sentence is awkward and unnatural. Try recasting it.

    This singer's popularity is growing worldwide.

    I have to say that I don't find the OP's sentence to be awkward or unnatural. We can always rephrase other people's sentences.

    'The singer's popularity is heightening worldwide.'
    Does it make sense?
