Bearing in mind, that this song from Bruno Mars comes from his 2016 album "24K Magic".

Uh it's 2018... How is it too early?  ??? These comments make no sense at all. Any videos released in 2018 is considered 2018 music... This thread is absolutely appropriate and allowed, we are in 2018 now and we can list some new songs coming out in 2018. The title and general thread make perfect sense and there's nothing wrong with it. It doesn't matter what the date is, it is still considered 2018  and music from 2018. I am very confused by your posts and your complaining, the 2017 year in music thread was made in January too so I'm not sure what your problems are lol, it's 2018 now. The video was posted on January 3rd 2018, along with many other new songs being released weekly from here on out. The OP did nothing wrong.

No it isn't early. Check your calendar, the date is January 4th, 2018, therefore it is absolutely appropriate to make a music in 2018 thread and start posting new songs. Besides these threads are meant to span and last throughout the whole year, nothing wrong with them. I'm not sure what your problem is too, don't attack the OP for bringing perfectly acceptable and reasonable activity to this forum opposed to the usual decadology posts. And don't come after me for defending it.  ;)

Get used to it. This just a commonality that happens every decade.

2010s --> 1990s nostalgia (a bit of '80s nostalgia)
2000s --> 1980s nostalgia
1990s --> 1970s nostalgia
1980s --> 1960s nostlagia (a bit of '50s nostalgia)
1970s --> 1950s nostalgia
1960s --> 1940s nostalgia

Nostalgia happens, but it has not happened to the same extent as the 2010s before where mainstream songs have many throwbacks. I won't get used to it because eventually the throwback song trend will go away and hopefully something new and fresh will come. A little nostalgia is fine, but it is getting old this decade and I want more new and fresh music.

Anyways, like I said...GET USED TO IT. You can feel "tired" about it but just get used to the fact that this is trend that has been going on for decades and WILL continue in future decades.

Lol no it isn't. Nostalgia for a previous time was never as big as it is in the 2010s. The throwback songs to previous decades is happening a lot more this decade than any other decade. Anyone could tell you that. And most likely it won't happen again when something new and fresh comes out in the '20s, so I won't get used to it, accept that lol. I am very tired of these throwback nostalgic songs, if you like it that's fine. But I don't and I want this trend to finally go away.

This. In no particular order:

Treasure music video - throwback to late '70s/early '80s R&B groups

24K Magic music video - something like '80s/'90s East Coast rap

Versace on the Floor - '80s/'90s neo-soul

And now with this video is a tribute to new jack swing and early '90s hip-hop. Actually it quite reminds me of the stuff you used to see on early Nickelodeon.

Lol you are so wrong it's laughable. The mid 2010s have had the throwback music trend, it is specific to this part of the decade and it hasn't always been as big as this. Give it up, everybody knows this. I have every right to voice my opinion, and I am getting tired of this trend and I hope it dies down soon, and it will. I am not into the sound and I hope it goes away soon and it probably will because people are getting tired of it. Deal with it. You are wrong here, and my statement is correct.

The first single for this new album though is.... well.... good actually. However, its a very different sound from JT's earlier work.

gA-NDZb29I4

It has a very 'futuristic' feel to it. The bass and beats of the song are great, but because it is so loud you barely could hear his vocals. Regardless though, its a pretty distinct sound to many mid 10's pop hits and I'm wondering if more of these trends pop up in song throughout the year!

That's exactly where the problem lies. People want "new, new, new" but don't know what that "new, new, new" is or will be.

Also, you can't have new without the old :-X.

Uh yes you can have new without the old... It's called innovation. It's called having a new sound and genre in music. New things being created. Most of us wants to move forward, not stay in the past and many musicians can deliver new sounds. People are too obsessed with nostalgia at the moment that's why so many throwback songs are popular now.

I was reading an interview of Gerald Casale(the bassist of Devo), it's from the early 2000s, here's an interesting quote from that interview.
People once thought music was a way to "fight the power". Today it doesn't feel like music is a particularly potent arena for challenging the forces of evil in the world

Music is the further proof of the de-evolution of mankind. It's amazing how little you have to do to amaze people. I like watching the Vines and Hives and Strokes, but c'mon - it's like if someone in the TV commercials field said, "Let's make a TV commercial that looks exactly like the Dodge ad from 1967." It's unreal that you can be a rock star and do these carefully reverential remakes. If somebody was making music for now that had the same transformative power that the Who or Hendrix had in their time in music history, it would not sound like anything we've heard. It would be like, 'What the fudge is that?' And maybe some people would like it, 'That's not music' but it would be powerful and kind of hypnotic. It would take a while to even understand it. That was what music then was like. Nobody thought that was what they wanted to hear. And if they'd run up to a flagpole and had a focus group, Nobody would have thought it would work. But once you heard it, you were changed. Everything now is just like rock muzak. It's all background music.


Yes, this quote captures the sense of stagnation we've had for the past 15-20 years in pop culture. There's a book called Retromania that came out in 2011 that discusses in-depth about this era's unique obsession with nostalgia to the detriment of innovation.

You ironically don't know what innovation means. You can't innovate something that is not already established, you can only innovate something that already exists or that is old/older.

For example, talking face to face with another human is the original form of communicating. An innovation to that is the invention and usage of cell phones.

Just so you guys are aware, you're basically arguing against human nature here. We all give in to golden age thinking now and then. That's why people continually create tributes and nostalgia trips.

And like I said, everything builds on something - that cool and unexpected nu-metal was formed on the basis of '90s rap rock, which in turn derived from '70s hip-hop and '80s hair metal. Grunge bands like Nirvana are essentially just a fusion of '70s metal and an '80s punk sensibility. Future funk is '90s French house with a little more melody. The next big new thing will also just be a hodgepodge of earlier influences that you'll pick out in an instant.

I generally agree with Slim95's view, it is easy for people to nitpick and counter argue but we just have not been seeing the kind of innovation we saw during most of the 20th century. Many years ago I posted a thread relating to this topic, the article I posted was written by Kurt Anderson, a writer at Vanity Fair, here's a part of the article.
Since 1992, as the technological miracles and wonders have propagated and the political economy has transformed, the world has become radically and profoundly new. (And then there’s the miraculous drop in violent crime in the United States, by half.) Here is what’s odd: during these same 20 years, the appearance of the world (computers, TVs, telephones, and music players aside) has changed hardly at all, less than it did during any 20-year period for at least a century. The past is a foreign country, but the recent past—the 00s, the 90s, even a lot of the 80s—looks almost identical to the present. This is the First Great Paradox of Contemporary Cultural History.


Think about it. Picture it. Rewind any other 20-year chunk of 20th-century time. There’s no chance you would mistake a photograph or movie of Americans or an American city from 1972—giant sideburns, collars, and bell-bottoms, leisure suits and cigarettes, AMC Javelins and Matadors and Gremlins alongside Dodge Demons, Swingers, Plymouth Dusters, and Scamps—with images from 1992. Time-travel back another 20 years, before rock ’n’ roll and the Pill and Vietnam, when both sexes wore hats and cars were big and bulbous with late-moderne fenders and fins—again, unmistakably different, 1952 from 1972. You can keep doing it and see that the characteristic surfaces and sounds of each historical moment are absolutely distinct from those of 20 years earlier or later: the clothes, the hair, the cars, the advertising—all of it. It’s even true of the 19th century: practically no respectable American man wore a beard before the 1850s, for instance, but beards were almost obligatory in the 1870s, and then disappeared again by 1900. The modern sensibility has been defined by brief stylistic shelf lives, our minds trained to register the recent past as old-fashioned.

Madonna to Gaga

Go deeper and you see that just 20 years also made all the difference in serious cultural output. New York’s amazing new buildings of the 1930s (the Chrysler, the Empire State) look nothing like the amazing new buildings of the 1910s (Grand Central, Woolworth) or of the 1950s (the Seagram, U.N. headquarters). Anyone can instantly identify a 50s movie (On the Waterfront, The Bridge on the River Kwai) versus one from 20 years before (Grand Hotel, It Happened One Night) or 20 years after (Klute, A Clockwork Orange), or tell the difference between hit songs from 1992 (Sir Mix-a-Lot) and 1972 (Neil Young) and 1952 (Patti Page) and 1932 (Duke Ellington). When high-end literature was being redefined by James Joyce and Virginia Woolf, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, great novels from just 20 years earlier—Henry James’s The Ambassadors, Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth—seemed like relics of another age. And 20 years after Hemingway published his war novel For Whom the Bell Tolls a new war novel, Catch-22, made it seem prespammersitely antique.


Now try to spot the big, obvious, defining differences between 2012 and 1992. Movies and literature and music have never changed less over a 20-year period. Lady Gaga has replaced Madonna, Adele has replaced Mariah Carey—both distinctions without a real difference—and Jay-Z and Wilco are still Jay-Z and Wilco. Except for certain details (no Google searches, no e-mail, no cell phones), ambitious fiction from 20 years ago (Doug Coupland’s Generation X, Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash, Martin Amis’s Time’s Arrow) is in no way dated, and the sensibility and style of Joan Didion’s books from even 20 years before that seem plausibly circa-2012.

I have literally zero energy to respond to this with gusto and research, but here are some thoughts about that last paragraph. Much of that, you'll find is a consequence of the creative works the author chooses to focus on. For example, the sitcom Frasier may not seem dated (well, not entirely) in 2018, but it certainly wouldn't resonate with audiences today the same way it did then. Hollywood has repeatedly tried and failed since the '90s to replicate the formula of such masterpieces as As Good As It Gets and simpler films like You've Got Mail. They don't work anymore like they used to.

The same goes for extant bands like Pearl Jam and Wilco, or artists like Lenny Kravitz. We still recognize them as famous and high-quality artists, but when was the last time Kravitz was regularly in the pop culture mags or a sex symbol? Hell, when was the last time John Mayer released an album to radio fanfare? They've been replaced by different sounds that don't resonate with '10s audiences the same way their '90s music resonated with '90s audiences.

Anyway, this is all to say, MOAR VIDEOS!

Man, Cardi B has been just everywhere lately! And check out the Bill-Bev-Devoe sound of this, '90s nostalgia 'ho.


I'm loving this song! After years of being subjected to formulaic electronic songs that are trying to plagiarize each other, this sounds so refreshing to my ears.  I honestly think this is one of the best pop songs of the decade, it's Uptown Funk-tier. It's a strong start to the year. 2018 has a lot to live up to!

I love Cardi B's rapping in this video, I almost wish it was longer.  ;D I don't know if it makes sense, but she has a strong "presence" in the song, she immediately catches your attention. Bruno Mars' vocals are also some of the best in the industry, got damn @ those high notes.

The aesthetic in that video is beautiful too. It's not just the '90s nostalgia, but wow those colours and how they together is just beautiful.

Um, country is exceptionally popular here in the States.
I don't know where you live, but a sizable number of Americans are pretty much gung-ho over country music. It doesn't just speak for country dwellers anymore, today's "country" seems to be a voice for young white Americans and even some younger minorities.

Nope I beg to differ. There are plenty of changes that happen in the mainstream. 1980s mainstream music is very different from 2010s mainstream music. And Justin Timberlake's new song Filthy, which may not be the most original thing in the world, but it is getting there and it is pretty unique, that debuted at number 9 on the billboard top 100. So we will get changes to the mainstream, but at the moment we are not there yet overall.

Subject: Re: 2018: The Year in Music

Written By: Slim95 on 01/20/18 at 3:51 pm

In fact let me give you some evidence:

Number 5 mainstream song of 1984: Against All Odds - Phil Collins

17 years later...

Number 5 mainstream song of 2001: I'm Real - Jennifer Lopez

17 years later...

Number 5 mainstream song of 2017: Something Just Like This - The Chainsmokers

All these songs sound completely different from another. In everything from production, styles, sound, etc. The content and lyrics is similar for pop mainstream music, but the general genres and sound are completely different. That is proof mainstream radio music does change and it will not always be the same. That is called progression, not taking older genres or having the same trend all the time. Something Just Like This would sound very out of place and futuristic in the 1984 by the production sound alone. Anyways not sure why this bothers you so much or you are bringing this argument up again, but just wanted to show evidence.

If you don't believe my assertion that country music is very popular among today's youth IN AMERICA, then take one look at the iTunes trending music. Just today, 3 of the 12 "Trending Of The Week" singles are "country". Roughly a year ago, the ratio was even higher. Something like 5 out of 12. And the fact that I personally know politically LIBERAL transplants from NJ/NY who enjoy country music, says a lot. Look at any Sam Hunt concert and see the sheer numbers of the concertgoers. Then estimate the ages of the vast majority of his audience. I don't see too much grey hair there.
So, yes, I do believe that country music is more popular than rock music these days, and not just among rural white Southerners but most Americans under the age of 30.

It will be a staple of pop music going forward, like bubblegum pop. Keep in mind that electropop has been a staple of pop music in Europe/Asia since the '90s. North America was weird in being very late in catching onto the trend.

Electronic music did enjoy a brief spike in popularity in the US in the mid '90s in the form of eurodance, before falling out of favor around 1998.  After 1998, there was electronic music that occasionally made it into the charts but it wouldn't be until 2009 that it would become mainstream again.

I really like anything Alan Walker is involved in.  It's basically what we would get if my two favorite EDM genres, '90s eurodance and early '10s electropop had a child.  I wish Alan Walker would take off in the US.

This is one of those songs that will be interesting to see how it charts.  A lot of people want a pop-punk revival and there have been numerous songs try to break in but nothing has really taken off.  At this point I'll believe it when I see it when it comes to a pop punk revival.

I will say that I can't think of a time where a genre revival that didn't update its sound for a modern audience was anything more than a fad.

Thank you! What do you mean about adult contemporary revival?
You're welcome! And what I mean by that is you mentioned future funk was slowed down, chopped up and people can pitch their voices. Most adult contemporary music tends to be slow and singers raising their pitches to hit those key notes. Furthermore, in the next decade, millennials will mainly be in their 30s and 40s providing a good opportunity to revive adult contemporary where songs can talk about issues that pertain to them specifically just like with the Boomers in the 90s who were in those age ranges during that time.

That's a pretty cool thing to do, I've seen a lot of people say the fact that he publicized it makes it seem like he had an agenda to push himself as a great guy, but honestly, whether those were part of his intentions or not, that shouldn't take away from the actions, he still did a great thing.

I found this song on Spotify on the new releases and it's by far one of my most favorite songs of 2018 so far. Too bad it only has 500 views.

I also found that through Spotify, it does have 100,000 streams on Spotify, so I guess it's just less popular on YouTube for some reason.

I honestly really dislike a lot of the Chainsmokers songs. Their song "Closer" has to be one of the worst songs I've ever heard.
I agree so much, an absolute, hideous borefest with terrible, ungeniune deliveries from both singers. Easily one of the worst hit songs this decade 8-P

Their newest stuff seem to flop which is a relief.

What makes it even worse is that a lot of their songs are so overplayed. It almost makes me wish I were deaf so I would have never had to hear their songs. "Something just like this" is extremely horrible and annoying IMO. A lot of their songs just sound the same to me.

Really though, Something just like this is one of the best songs released this decade imo. Definitely the best popular song of 2017. The Chainsmokers are talented in their beats and put out some great hits this decade. Closer wasn't the best but it wasn't terrible and it was one of the best songs of 2016. Roses is awesome. If anything the Chainsmokers are helping save music this decade. The songs they released this year are pretty bad though.

They're abysmal, both musically with really generic beats and ideologically as they had some really mysogynistic statements.

Roses is decent, but it isn't worth their whole discography just for that one song.

As far as mainstream EDM producers go, Zedd is a far more superior and interesting example.

Lol no they aren't. They are neither abysmal nor misogynistic, so weird to say that. Anyway they make very good songs and are one of the only decent popular artists in the mainstream now. The only songs I really don't like are the last two they put out and Don't Let Me Down was just meh to me.

Well that's your opinion and I strongly disagree. I did like #SELFIE as well though, because it was a parody song that made fun of the ridiculousness of mainstream culture over catchy EDM beats. It was actually a good concept. But the dumb part was that many people don't even know it's a parody and think the song is serious.

Buckley talks about it being a parody as well in this video.

I think some form of rock will reemerge. At some point, people will want to return to something more organic. I've been coming across a lot of new young bands lately on youtube. I don't care for a lot of them because they're either not my type or too nostalgic. Then again, I might have come to this conclusion since I was raised in a decade built on backlashing against the superficiality of the 80s (the 90s).

Why would rock come back if that's going backwards? If people like organic music, they could always listen to it. It doesn't mean it will come back into the mainstream. Music moves forward and rock has been dead for quite a while now. The only way it would come back is if it combined with a newer genre making a new genre in itself. Just like jazz won't come back on its own but electro jazz has been popular recently.

I honestly really dislike a lot of the Chainsmokers songs. Their song "Closer" has to be one of the worst songs I've ever heard.
By the way, I was thinking of something. If "Closer" was done in the 2000s, it would sound something Closer to this:

No Trap, 100% cheesy rave Euro-Trance ;D

The video stars Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Kendall Jenner, DJ Khaled & Lil Dicky.

Also, the premise of the video is based on the 2003 movie, Freaky Friday with Lindsay Lohan & Jamie Lee Curtis (hence the title).

No thoughts about this song? It's currently #9 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Yeah, that's easily one of the worst songs of 2018 so far IMO. I liked "Say Something" a lot better.

Filthy was an awesome song. One of the best so far.

Famous Dex released his song Japan last month, it has some pop culture references in the video, mostly mid/late 90's ones.

I think the hook is pretty catchy, but the song itself isn't very different or unique.

I'm listening to Cardi B's album Invasion of Privacy on Spotify and most of the songs I've listened to so far have been OK to good/catchy.

I'm actually surprised. I'm neutral on Cardi B, I don't like her "ratchet" attitude but I don't hate her like a lot of people do.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but Cardi B could burn out soon if she continues to overexpose herself. She has been on almost everyone's track since the year started and it seems she's getting ahead of herself lately.

I really liked “Freaky Friday” until I remembered what that butthead Chris Brown did to Rihanna. I want you all to read this carefully and thoroughly and then you can decide if you really want to support the literal human garbage that is Chris Brown:

“Christopher Brown and Robyn F. (Rihanna) have been involved in a dating relationship for approx one and half years. On Sunday, February 8, 2009 at 0025 hours, Brown was driving a vehicle with Robyn F. as the front passenger on an unknown street in Los Angeles. Robin F. picked up Brown’s cellular telephone and observed a three page text message from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with. A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled the vehicle over on an unknown street, reached over Robyn F. with his right hand, opened the car door and attempted to force her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F. out of the vehicle because she was wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to exit he took his right hand and shoved her head against the passenger window of the vehicle causing an approximate one inch raised circular contusion. Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.

Brown looked at Robyn F. and stated, “I am going to beat the sheesh out of you when we get home! You wait and see!” Robyn F. picked her cellular telephone and called her personal assistant, Jennifer Rosales at . Rosales did not answer the telephone but while her voicemail greeting was playing, Robyn F. pretended to talk to her and stated, “I’m on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there.” (This statement was made while the greeting was playing and was not captured as a message). After Robyn F. faked the call, Brown and looked at her and stated, “You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you.” Brown resumed punching Robyn F. and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown. Brown continued to punch Robyn F. on her left arm and hand causing her to suffer a contusion on her left triceps that was approximately two inches in diameter and numerous contusions on her left hand. Robyn F. then attempted to send a text message to her other personal assistant, Melissa Ford. Brown snatched the cellular telephone out of her hand and threw it out of the window onto an unknown street.

Brown continued driving and Robyn F. observed his cellular phone sitting in his lap. She picked up the cellular telephone with her left hand and before she could make a call he placed her in a head lock with his right hand and continued to drive the vehicle with his left hand. Brown pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear. She was able to feel the vehicle swerving from right to left as Brown sped away. He stopped the vehicle in front of and Robyn F. turned off the car, removed the key from the ignition and sat on it. Brown did not know what she did with the key and began punching her in the face and arms. He then placed her in a head lock positioning the front of her throat between his bicep and forearm. Brown began applying pressure to Robyn F’s. left and right carotid arteries causing her to be unable to breathe and she began to lose consciousness. She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gauge his eyes in an attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her. While Brown continued to punch her, she turned around and placed her back against the passenger door. She brought her knees to her chest, placed her feet against Brown’s body and began pushing him away. Brown continued to punch her on the legs and feet causing several contusions. Robyn F. began screaming for help and Brown exited the vehicle and walked away. A resident in the neighborhood heard Robyn F.’s plea for help and called 911, causing a police response. An investigation was conducted and Robyn F. was issued a Domestic Violence Emergency Protective Order (EPO).”

There is no doubt what Chris Brown did to Rihanna in 2009 was horrible but I believe that he was just an irresponsible and immature 19 year old and he has showed a lot of maturity since then. Also, Rihanna herself has forgiven him and even made a song with him since that incident.

I don't believe that we should always bring up what Chris Brown did to Rihanna to hate on Chris Brown. He's not some evil demon and of course he's not a saint by any stretch off the imagination.



Here are some of their responses to the incident since then:

Rihanna

"I don't hate him," she shares. "I will care about him until the day I die. We're not friends, but it's not like we're enemies. We don't have much of a relationship now."

“She will always love him and she does wish she could help him but there’s really nothing she can do, she’s not going backwards.”

Chris Brown

“We would fight each other. She would hit me, I would hit her and it never was OK,” he continued.

“I look back at that picture and I’m like that’s not me, bro, that’s not me. I hate it to this day. That’s going to haunt me forever.”

"You have to forgive yourself," Brown said. "You can't beat yourself up over the years, because it'll just eat at you and you'll be stuck in the past. And for me, I just learned to be a more humble individual and more of a conscious person."

"I’m not the pink elephant in the room anymore," he tweeted. "My life mistakes should be a wake-up call for everyone. Showing the world that mistakes don't define you. Trying to prevent spousal abuse."

Honestly I get that she forgave him and stuff but I still can't look at him normally you know? Like I'll always see him as the guy who almost killed his girlfriend because she found out he cheated on her, an thhat's not really something you do even if you're immature.

Also, there are plenty of spousal abusers of all ages.

Anyways, Chris Brown has mostly stayed out of the legal problems since that incident and I don't think that it's fair to still hold it over him as a reason why you can't like his music. Plenty of famous musicians have some lack of moral or personal character and yet we still listen to and love their music.

He said it would be awkward for them to sing it, not listen to it, which I don't really agree with. I don't understand how that'd be "awkward". Maybe I'm missing something.

Yeah I agree. I mean Drake is singing it, why can't other guys? Lol it doesn't make much sense for it to be awkward. There are actually a lot of openly male feminists out there, including our Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau.

Alright I'll explain what I meant. Maybe, awkward is the wrong word but it fits the most.

I never said that males can't listen to or enjoy "Nice For What" but singing the song would be almost ironic.

It's like if a male was singing "Run the World (Girls)" by Beyonce or "No Scrubs" by TLC. Or vice versa, if a female was singing "No Pigeons" by Sporty Thievz and "Loyal" by Chris Brown (ft. Lil Wayne, French Montana, Too Short, and Tyga).

You can like those songs regardless of your gender but singing them if you're the opposite gender is a bit ironic.

I hear some females singing "These hoes ain't loyal" (lyrics from "Loyal") and I find that a bit awkward and ironic. Why would you as a female sing that? ;D


Maybe, that's just me though. I might just be saying BS to you guys but it's whatever http://www.thecoli.com/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/hubie.png.

Formation by Beyoncé could also be considered a mainstream bounce-influenced song. I think it's okay for it to be mainstream as long as people don't erase the Black/LGBT New Orleans origins of bounce music.

Most of the best alt hip hop came out in the 90s-00s, so looking up MF Doom (Madvillain), A Tribe Called Quest, OutKast, Fugees, Digable Planets, The Roots, and Deltron 3030 are a good place to start. Kanye West could be considered an alt hip hop artist as he was heavily influenced by it, and MBDTF is definatly an alt hip hop album IMO. Today, there's not a lot of people doing alt hip hop like back then, but in many ways J Cole, Kendrick, Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino, Vince Staples, etc. could be considered the spiritual successors of alternative hip hop. The best new alt hip hop album out now is easily Rapsody's Laila's Wisdom. Vince Staples' Big Fish Theory was also good, unless if you dislike weird futuristic beats.

Nicki Minaj said in an interview that Chun-Li and Barbie Tingz are probably be the most poppy songs in her new album. She's dropping her pop-rap persona and going fully hip hop. I'm here for it. Do ya'll think her album will flop or will it do numbers?

I like Drake and I was one of his biggest defenders during the "look at Jimmy rapping, 'watch out Jimmy, before you get shot again!" phase of his career. I still don't think God's Plan deserve the amount of popularity it's receiving.

One thing I'm super disappointed in rap's trajectory so far is that the OFWGKTA sound didn't take off more. Then again, it might have been the gleeful offensiveness that turned people off.

Here's a recent song produced by Earl Sweatshirt. I wish this kind of rap was more popular.

I don't think just one rock song is a sign of a rock revival. I personally want the 2020's to be its own thing. A little revival is fine here and there but it shouldn't be too much. IMO it's a lot better if the 2020's have their own identity.

It's not you. This is a very dried up, dead end era. Over-commercialization always seems to hit towards the latter years of a decade. You can see it in the late 70s, late 80s, & late 90s (the late 00s might actually be an exception). The over-commercialization of the late 10s is by far the worst of any decade previously, IMO.  It's like 1991 for synth pop and hair metal, but with no hint of change in sight.

Yes, but you can also argue that for the 70's as well. In the early to mid 70s, there was still a lot of that late 60's, Vietnam War era ethos in the air. The late 70's did give us punk and still had great music, but it wasn't connected as much to the sociopolitical challenges of the day. The "90s" were a reaction to the over-the-top 80s, a social critique. It's really amazing (and sad) to me that the current music scene is so detached from any of the issues going on. Absolutely 0 critique of our culture or political system.

However, I do agree with you in that today's pop culture, especially music, is overly generic and detached from our politics.  To be fair though, I would say that Vietnam-era music was an anomaly in terms of how political it was.

True. I wasn't around in the 70s but this seems like the case. There's been "black conscious" politics thrown around here and there by Lamar, Beyonce, Jay Z, etc, but nothing super noteworthy.

This has been my hope as well. Personally, I would love it if crooner-type vocalists became a thing again. I would love nothing more than for jazzy and big band-type genres to be popular again, I love that kind of music most of all. Maybe we're seeing it with electro swing and the like, but I'd love to see classic instruments come back.


I think the 2020s will go back to being like the 00s and 90s where there were many little prominent cultures. However, I doubt it'll be the same as those decades.


It's already happening. Mainstream music no longer accurately describes what the public listens to these days, and I think this thread has taught me that more than anything. Radio is pumping out more Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, but people are tribalising with their music again. I think it's terrific, actually - this is how variety is created. More on that below.


It's relevant. Whatever is the staple in the next decade, it was already a thing of small prominence the last decade. It takes time for things that last to brew. The 2020s can be found in this decade we just don't know what it is. And when it becomes popular next decade, that thing will be known as a 2020s thing.  :)


Absolutely. The same thing happened in the late '70s and '80s. You started with these new wave bands like Devo and Talking Heads on the one hand and hardcore bands like Black Flag and MDC on the other. These countercultural voices gave birth to the alternative movement in the early and mid '80s: bands like R.E.M., They Might Be Giants, Hüsker Dü, The Replacements, and zillions of others. That college rock and alternative stuff, in turn, paved the way for the grunge explosion and basically created the '90s.

Just think about that: a small germ, the dying seed of the hippie counterculture in the late '70s, is responsible for the '90s as they happened culturally speaking. For all we know, that seed has already been planted for what will get big in the 2020s and beyond.

In other news:

TIDAL ACCUSED OF DELIBERATELY FAKING KANYE WEST AND BEYONCÉ STREAMING NUMBERS

You might recall that, in the deep dark recesses of music streaming history – ie. two years ago – Jay Z-owned TIDAL left many in the music business scratching their heads. In March 2016, the firm claimed that Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo, a six-week exclusive on its platform, had been streamed 250m times in just 10 days. At the same time, TIDAL claimed that its platform had surpassed 3m subscribers. These numbers meant that, on average, every single TIDAL subscriber would have had to be playing the Kanye album over eight times a day.

Similar suspicions were triggered by the success of Beyonce’s record-breaking Lemonade a couple of months later. TIDAL claimed that Lemonade was streamed 306m times on its platform in its first 15 days post-release. Stats like this led Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv to investigate in January 2017 – and uncover documents which, it said, suggested that TIDAL had been deliberately inflating its subscriber figures. This report was lend credence by data from trusted music industry research firm Midia in the same month, which estimated that TIDAL’s subscriber base actually only included 1m people worldwide. Now, DN has run an update – following more than a year of journalistic digging. And it’s an absolute jaw-dropper.

The WHOLE industry nowadays is a bunch of smoke and mirrors, and everyone plays the game. To me, streaming will never be the same as buying music. 90s/00s babies are so entitled to free music; now I can see why artists don't put much effort into their music anymore. If you really like an artist's music, BUY their album.

It really sucks because even the biggest artists of today struggle to sell over 1m copies, and without streaming most never reach 400k. Now compare that to the 90s when every genre was worth in the billions, and every major artist could sell over 10m copies without much promotion. The entire industry needs a revamp.

Really? I don't think it's her best song, but the very first time I heard it I knew it was a hit. I ran this song into the ground last year and was surprised it wasn't a hit last summer.....but yeah, as much as I love this song, I never expected it to crack the Top 40 on the main chart.

Well, one reason I didn't think it'd be a hit is because Ella Mai wasn't that well known last year, although she was gaining some steam, she never had a hit at all until now, so it just surprised me that over a year later "Boo'd Up" starts getting pushed on the radio. I think it doesn't fit as much into current mainstream R&B compared to let's say "Breakfast in Bed" or "Anymore" off the same EP, so I would've expected a different song to be pushed by her record label.

I guess I thought that because of its' really mellow vibe (which I like btw) or maybe due to a throwback type of sound like you mentioned.

"Alternative R&B" has been buzzing since 2011 and has been largely ignored by the mainstream. It was only a matter of time before it finally started to pop (SZA opened the door on a mainstream level), especially since contemporary R&B from the likes of Chris Brown and Trey Songz seems to be getting stale to the urban audience.

Yeah, I've been listening to alt-R&B for a while now, I love it, but I'm not so sure if I would say Ella Mai falls into that category, she sounds more like the contemporary style to me. What makes you say she's alternative R&B just out of curiosity?

I thought Charlie Puth was super boring until recently, I've listened to some of the singles he's released on the album (Done For Me, Attention, How Long, If You Leave Me Now) and I think they're much better than everything he's released before (which has either bored or annoyed me), Done For Me and If You Leave Me Now are actually on my 2018 playlist, so I may check the album out. :)

I'm becoming more and more convinced that the 2020s will be dominated by alt R&B the same way the 90s was dominated by r&b.


Probably, but even then alt-R&B as we know it today is already somewhat mainstream, so I imagine that alt-R&B in the 20s would sound different than today. Maybe more upbeat and soulful as a reaction against today’s slow and whispery alt-R&B, but still maintain the innovative genre-bending production of alt-R&B.

My brother thinks that VS/Black Panther sound is going to be the next big thing. So basically a distorted moog bass, futuristic afrobeat drums, arpeggiators, and house/techno influence. Would be dope :)

"Storm" is a song performed by singer SuRie, and represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal. The song is written and composed by Nicole Blair, Gil Lewis and Sean Hargreaves. An updated version was released as a download on 7 March. During her performance of the song at the grand final in Lisbon on 12 May, SuRie had her microphone grabbed by an unknown stage invader. The UK entry finished on 48 points and not on bottom place.

True, alt rNb is somewhat mainstream but it's still kinda mainstream in the same way that trap was mainstream at the beginning of the 10s. I can see it being the early 2020s sound.  Then again, it could be the genre that falls to the wayside for one or more other genres to enter the scene. Something tells me music will diversify again soon.

Whats "VS"? And what's an example of a "VS/Black Panther sound"?

I would really like House to become mainstream. The new Dua Lipa Calvin Harris song has really grown on me and Harris was one of the producers who made EDM mainstream. Maybe he can do it again with House.

Probably not. Those fans, probably teen or preteen girls in the group’s heyday, are moms now. They may have moved on to acts like Bruno Mars and solo Justin Timberlake.

Yeah, releasing two mediocre albums in a row with an extended hiatus in between them is not a recipe for staying relevant.  Just ask Lady Gaga.

The Backstreet Boys' problem is they never really evolved beyond teen pop in the way that N'Sync (later Justin Timberlake) and Britney did. Also, their newer stuff just doesn’t sound good.

Anybody think this song has a late '00s sound to it?  It sounds like something that would have been popular in 2007 or 2008 or maybe early 2009.  Not '10s though.

We'll see.  "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga flopped when it was initially released in April 2008.  It was released again in September and it exploded in popularity.  You more than likely are right though.

I don't know why people think just because 2008 was changeful that 2018 has to be too. It doesn't work that way. It's not like producers decide every 9th year there will be a huge shift in music, It's just a coincidence that it happened in 1998 and 2008. My bet it won't happen until the early '20s because things have been going a lot slower in the 2010s.

To me, late 2018 seems a lot more hip-hop heavy than the first half of the year was.  Latin pop is still a thing, though I don't think it's as big as 2017.  I think EDM is currently experiencing an identity crisis and doesn't know where it's really going next.  The first half of 2018 was excellent for EDM but the second half hasn't been as good.

I mean if he's a kid in 2018, I don't expect him to look so middle-aged only 16 years later ;D

This one kind of has an early '10s vibe to it for me.

It sounds like the song is following the "Mi Gente" formula.

Gaga is making a musical comeback, basically. This is kind of like her Emancipation of Mimi, or her 'Believe' (album by Cher in 1998). I'd not screw it up this time, if I were her. She's having an amazing run, with her movie, the soundtrack, and the singles exploding everywhere!

Not really, she had a good movie, but shes seen as a legacy artist now, and she tried coming back in 2013 and failed

I disagree that 2013 was an attempted comeback.  That was still at the tail end of her prime and only two years after Born This Way.  However I would say that marked the beginning of her decline.  I do agree however that she's a legacy artist now.  She could still have a strong comeback but that gets less and less likely as time goes on.  I kind of wish she would have stuck to dance pop a little bit longer than she did.  Glad to see "Shallow" at least putting her back into the Top 40 but I can't say I really like that song.

Her declined happened in 2011 with marry the night

2013 was an attempt to make it in the mainstream again with a more friendly lead and it failed.

Marry the Night was supposed to be the lead single from the album.  It probably would have fared much better had it been, given that it's one of the songs on BTW that in my opinion would have fit very well into the Fame Monster era.  I think the issue was by that time she had simply been so overexposed and there was also the problem of her being "too gay" for a lot of people.  I know I stopped listening to her as much around that time because I was deep in the closet and I didn't want to be judged.  Marry The Night was also the 5th single from the album and was released at the end of the year.  Not really a good formula for a chart smashing hit.

ARTPOP on the other hand flopped because it was too over the top and too much of a departure from her original formula.  Gaga's biggest songs were always songs that were relatable for most pop music fans and much of ARTPOP was not.

Her songs dont normally get played on pop radio as in KISS FM stations
unless its like random, I did hear Just Dance being played on Kiss a month back

regardless shes doing Vegas residences  which means shes washed up as an artist

I don't think it was too over-the-top, especially compared to the previous era. Applause even seemed rather tame compared to Born This Way which had both a pretty loudmouthed message and some shocking visuals as far as mainstream pop goes.

I will blame it more on the fact that it came around an awful time and was the opposite of what she needed. She released it around the same time Katy Perry made her comeback, and other pop stars making buzz like Lorde and Bangerz-era Miley made the competition even tougher. Also not to mention the album was pretty "behind the times" in how heavily electro-house/brostep-driven it was.

Honestly, I'm hearing her fame monster era songs far more now than I have since 2012. Not to saying she is back to being a super star but she is definitely not being forgotten.
