How is 5SOS's Youngblood doing so well on the charts?

Featured Posts

Internationally, the song has already been one of the biggest hits of the year, and in the US it's still rising on the charts at no. 11.

With it's indie rock/new wave sound, how does it even manage to stay so relevant in a pop climate that is so different, and get into a top 20 that's all filled with trap rap/mellow R&B?

Does this mean that there is still a way for rock music to connect with today's GP and become hits?

Never heard this song

Looks like we didn't have one big hit in 2018, it's scary

In general, Kendrick, Cardi b, Childish Gambino and Drake owns 2018 :giggle:

There is always room for something different or something new. Not doing what everyone else does is a way to stand out. And if one artist is successful with a genre continuously others will follow and that's how trends are born.

As in that 'one big hit' of the year? For the US it's probably either Drake's God's Plan or In My Feelings, sad to say...

I have heard this song before and I had no idea it was a 5SOS song. It's actually so good :giveup:

Reminds me a little bit of Imagine Dragons.

Then I guess I'm still waiting for someone successful to follow this sound...

It's simply because it is a good song

5SOS's music is much more mature now and they, as a band, are no longer teenage girls-material, their music feels and sounds more adult and interesting 

And I'm not even saying it as a fan, I'm just genuinely happy for them!

For once talent is winning. 

They released the best album of the year so it's what they deserve.
