What on EARTH has happened to pop music?

Featured Posts

Faded

Pop music started getting real bad for me around 2017. I've always spread the message that pop music is the best in the world as Gaga says, it has that 'magic' in it that makes everyone gravitate towards it. But I can no longer defend it.

We take the mick out of 'mumble rappers' but their stuff is 10 times BETTER than this...

 

Why on earth did this even make it into the top 5??  Are we lowering our standards because no one is producing any real good pop music? Yet there's people out there like Tinashe producing amazing music but no one wants to give it a listen. No one wants the black gal, huh? I GUARANTEE you if Tinashe was white, she would be huge. I get we all have our tastes but come on, pop music has that universal element which makes everyone admire it and this is NOT it.

'Bad Guy' - I can't describe how this song makes me feel. I feel sick when I hear that 'bad guy' robotic effect and then off goes that seriously irritating music which is nor danceable nor toe-tapping. Then she has the audacity to say 'i'm a bad guyyyy' AGAIN in that horrific effect which sounds like it's from a free virus-filled music software. This is not me hating on Billie Eilish, I'm just severely confused. Trying to look 'cool' or 'edgy' in your music video doesn't count for **** if your music is crap. Gaga every time had an intricate 'edgy' (as the locals would say) video but backed it up every single time with a real game-changing pop song.

 

Sorry, rant over. But I just can't take this crap music no more and people streaming this dire ****.

 

Here's a real song for y'all.

I'm not sure, but I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this. I wouldn't like the future of pop if it sounds anything like what Billie is releasing. It's mostly whispering. I would honestly like a Sweet But Psycho type of song than a Bad Guy or Ocean Eyes type of song.

I’m not sure why people hate Billie and her sound, I find it refreshing and she reminds me of Lorde. If you’re gonna complain about pop music, have a go at pop artists like Zara Larsson and Selena Gomez because they’re basic asf.

I've drifted to R&B since pop music became catastrophic. But I love pop music so much pre-2017* :(

*(Apart from a few like New Rules, The Cure and Ciao Adios which I think are great)

2017?

Try 2013. That was the year when whisper pop and mumble rap AND streaming started to infect the charts

i think bad guy is so minimal and fresh, and interesting. I love the theme (the melody) and the harmonic and I hear nothing wrong with the bad guy effect. There is a rock vibe into that song.

Kim Petras / Carly are releasing amazing songs right now, that's keeping me entertained until Gaga wakes up from her coma

I was high for most of that year but I do recall there being a massive hip hop comeback that year against dance-pop, which had been dominant since 2008.

Fetty Wap, Machine Gun Kelly, Macklemore, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Future, Migos, Travis Scott, Asap Rocky and Ty Dollar Sign all had MASSIVE debuts in 2012-2014.

This. The only song that was rap at the time was blurred lines and that’s 10000x times better than today’s rap. The closest was also Nicki Minaj & Justin Timberlake (I think) to Rap & RnB and that was not even close to the rap we have today:ohwell:

strike a ****ing pose
