Hip hop goes up while pop has been gradually receding. That has been the topic of discussion in music for the past few years. However, it seems that the Pop ‘big guy’ is really getting up after a long sleep.
And we think it’s an inevitable trend that won’t be reversible, at least for the foreseeable future, until the hit songs deconstructed, a music data platform, makes statistics about hits in the first half. year 2019.
Incidentally, in the second quarter of this year, out of 15 new songs appearing in the top 10 of the Billboard charts, only 34% were hip hop music, while pop music accounted for 46%. This is not a temporary phenomenon.
For the first 3 months of 2019, hip hop accounted for 40% of the top 10 while pop songs at 45%. The gap is just a little bit. That is, pop is increasing the gap with hip hop. Meanwhile, in 2018, hip hop dominated 60% of the list, while pop at 23%.
Well, the Old Town Road melody of rapper Lil Nas X is a summer hymn, but his dominance alone cannot pull the victory for hip hop when on the other side, pop music is producing a new generation of stars.
Katy Perry flop, Miley Cyrus flop, even Taylor Swift have not reached the level of flop, but the songs in her new album are not too hot, but that’s okay. Teenage dream or teeny dream of Katy Perry closed, then opened the sweet nightmare of horror Ava Max in the song Sweet but psycho.
Lacking the youth rebellion of Miley Cyrus, we have Billie Eilish. Billie is the owner of the song Bad guy, the song constantly chasing Old town road on the chart. If you get bored of Taylor Swift’s love song, then enter the world of wet and passionate love like Señorita of Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes.
