Subject: Is 2019 peak late 10s or was it 2018

Written By: 1997days on 06/06/19 at 11:58 am

I was thinking it was 2018 as the peak late 2010s since 2019 seems a little different from 2018 but still fits the late 10s culture.i know for sure that we aren't in the core 10s  anymore.

2018. What a beautiful year! I'll try to expand more on that later.

Kinda was, EDM was still very popular, Shawn Mendes and other artists made good songs, movies like Black Panther, Incredibles 2, Bumblebee and other movies were popular, Fortnite still having no backlash, and smartphones are transitioning to Bezel-less displays.

But the bad things are: Lil Pump, Lil Xan, 6ix9ine, Lil Uzi Vert, mumble rap in general. Infinity war, Justin Trudeau still ruining Canada (still getting worse), Logan Paul, Tide Pods, and lots more.

To me, it's a 50/50, until September 2018 when things really sucked.

Honestly I have a feeling that 2020 will be the peak of the current culture. Even though it won't officially be the late 10's anymore, but all things building up during 2017-2019 will hit a climactic point in 2020. My prediction is that many of the defining artists such as Cardi B, Migos, Post Malone, etc. will release albums in 2020 that will be at the peak of their careers. I base it the fact that it's a Summer Olympics/Presidential Election year and those years always seem to be peak years of their respective eras, such as 2016, 2012, and so on.

I’m not sure about that. The latest single from Cardi B isn’t getting any success. 2020 will probably feel very different from the late 2010s. The year 2010 feels different from 2007-2008 due to the new trends introduced from that year.

it's too early to tell rn but i have a feeling that we'll eventually consider 2018 to be peak late 10s.

Neither. The peak of late 2010s culture will be 2020 probably.

This. We are no doubt 100% still in 2010s culture now.
