Pop music is still going, which is cool - I like pop music. RnB (or contemporary RnB as we now call it) is truly a dead genre.
Garage music too, house is barely going. Mall Grab and DJ Boring are keeping it alive (along with similar artists).
Neo-Soul is being shown more on Colors Show which is nice, but not mainstream. Can't comment for any rock+ music because I don't like it. Grime music is also slowly dying, which is a shame. The Wiley/Stormzy clash brought some bangers but other than that it's been a dry year. Not into indie music, but it's a growing genre for sure. Same with the 'cute' genres. Lofi is again going downhill after being dragged from the grave by TikTock. Beat tapes are going up, which is cool. Heard some good ones in 2019. Alt Hip Hop is eh.
My opinion on music in general right now, we need new artists - we've had the same ones in hip hop and rnb for too long (rnb has nobody haha, only small artists now. Kelis is making spices and Amerie is doing book reviews! RnB singers are needed big time.)
it's so pointless and stupid
i wish we could go back to like the 80's and get some real, meaningful music :/
The 90s was probably the last great music decade imho. Even the cheesy pop like S Club, Spice Girls, Vengaboys, etc were worth listening to. I was a noughties child and even then the stuff in the charts was decent; 00s British indie and power punk really held it's own although not trend setting in the same way Britpop seems to have been. Wish we could go back at least 15 years, it was such a simple, happier time..
Moreover I believe it's ease of listening to music that has made it so homogenic these days. The only way people listened to music back then before the Spotify, Apple Music era was to buy CD's or hear it on TV and that required a more genuine interest in the music. Social media has a part to play in this and other peers, the way it looks it seems that music is being dictated by the younger generation and ultimately the problem is that they're not listening to the music because it sounds good but rather it's popular or at least makes them look popular with their mates. I've seen on a lot of pages on Facebook and videos on Youtube that the majority of people believe that music is going downhill due to the fact that the older generation fail to recognise who they are, implying that they've lost interest in today's music. Lmao I even have, like I'm only 23 but judging by my music tastes people would think I'm 30.
