That video has nothing to do with the 2000s other than the 1 track suit

I find the video graphics more similar to an early 2000’s TV than 90’s or 80’s, also the lyrics font has a Y2K vibe

NICE SONG BUT I THINK THE SONG HAS MORE OF A 83 VIBE

Alright. I'll put some real effort into this thread.

Here's a new song from Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd. It's okay. I was hoping for more. The biggest take away is the super explicit lyrics.

I'm actually 110% cool with rap going in the Bounce direction. I may not be a big fan of trap but Bounce overcomes Trap's monotony.

Yeah, I already notice the change in music. Trap is still huge, but it’s getting staler and staler. Post Malone usually releases Trap music, but with Sunflower being his new song, it’s not a trap song, and Lo-fi will just continue to infiltrate hip hop. Also, hip hop is going to a bounce direction, starting from Drake with Nice For What in 2018, then to In My Feelings, and now we have Cardi B with Twerk, which is again, bounce, but still with trap elements. I already see Trap dying, when XXXTentacion’s death, 6ix9ine getting arrested, and there’s less mumble rap. Besides Hip Hop and R&B, in pop music, core 2010s artists like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber already faded in the background, with Ariana Grande being the last woman standing, as there’s newer artists like Post Malone, Halsey, Dua Lipa, Bazzi, Billie Eilish ushering in a new era of pop. EDM is slowly getting stale as well, as there’s less EDM artists making music, with the Chainsmokers gradually fading, and Zedd slowly facing its decline, and sadly, the death of Avicii. Marshmello and Calvin Harris are saving EDM however, which could last throughout late 2019. I’d say we’re entering a new era of music, with mid 2018 starting the transition from mid 2010s music to late 2010s/early 2020s music.

I might just be getting old but after living vividly through 1999 and 2009, I'm used to the 9th year feeling really fresh. Even during the beginning. It doesn't feel that way this year.  :-\\

They broke out since 2015. Plus, 2017 and 2018 are more late 2010s than mid 2010s.

Generic sound that Kanye made with Yeezus in 2013

It's pretty good actually, it's the late-2010s brand of Depresso-Pop but on steriods.

(I do agree though that it seems very inspired by Kanye West circa. 2013)

Billie Eilish is a strong contender for the one of the first superstar of the 2020s. She stands out and captivates the Gen Z audience (not just girls) unlike other female pop artists.

I feel like Late 2018 til today feels dark in music. Sure, Trap is still popular, but its past its peak, and Hip Hop and R&B is more Lo-fi, if you heard Sunflower by Post Malone, which is more Lo-fi than happy trap. And then, emo or emo-inspired music from Ava Max and Billie Eilish are all mainstream at the moment, it’s just so dark!  :(

Has been this way since 2017. Even a song like "Despacito" is fairly slow and muted compared to past huge Latin cheesefests like say "Livin' La Vida Loca" or "Hips Don't Lie". 2016 also seemed very muted compared to what came before (songs that defined the year like "Panda", "Work", "PillowTalk", "Stressed Out", "Starboy"  and "Black Beatles" don't exactly scream joy and high energy to me).

This song is currently in the top ten and it is not dark.

Can you believe P!ATD has a top 5 hit in 2018/2019? Plus, Rockstar and Psycho sound more depressing than Sunflower.

Shes not, her team buys her youtube views and Facebook likes, nothing organic about this artist

when I was at RCA she was labeled "plant project"  I would recommend  you do a google search about Billie/Plant,
you will see tons of subjects about this matter

I like Sweet but Psycho but it is in no way the kind of trendsetting song that John Titor thinks it is.  I think it could have been just as popular had it come out any year since 2010.

Anyways I don't think I said anything about her not being an industry plant. I'm not surprised if she is.
