Top 10 Beyoncé Workout Songs

Posted by Claire McConnell on Jul 28, 2022 11:00:00 AM

Beyoncé, Sasha Fierce, Yoncé, Ms. Carter, Queen B - there are many names and identities by which we’ve come to know one of the most prolific artists of the last few decades. She changed the game with the digital drop, made an arthouse film around her 2016 genre-defying album Lemonade, and while she’s been involved in collaborations like her project The Carters with husband Jay-Z, chart-topping remixes with Ed Sheeran and Megan Thee Stallion, and movie soundtracks, the Queen herself has not released a solo project in six years.

Deep Cuts: Lizzo

Posted by Claire McConnell on Jul 14, 2022 11:00:00 AM

Every couple of years, there is an artist who completely captures popular culture and eclipses everything else in the musical zeitgeist. In 2019, that artist was undoubtedly Lizzo. The release of her major label debut album, Cuz I Love You, that year, was not the beginning of her music career however. Instead, it was the result of years of music making, discovering her sound, honing her rap skills in Houston, then joining various music groups in Minneapolis, and even garnering the attention of Prince himself.

Harry's House - First Listen

Posted by Claire McConnell on May 21, 2022 11:30:00 AM

Building off the chart-topping success of 2019’s Fine Line, the new album from Harry Styles, Harry’s House, offers an intimate glimpse of a superstar finding his home sonically while capitalizing on an approachable charisma fans (and soon-to-be fans) have come to know and love.   

Doubts will fly around any ex-boy band member’s solo project, but Styles shook off any labels of unoriginal, commercially driven music with his debut album. Since then, he has been able to ride the wave of pop criticism and forge his own path, caring more about winning over live audiences and their connection to the music he is making. Sure, he started with a built-in teenage fan base coming into young adulthood that would follow him to the ends of the Earth, but it’s Harry’s ability to win over their parents with sophisticated rock grooves that make him a global star.

Machine Gun Kelly & Pop Punk’s New Class

Posted by Claire McConnell on Mar 24, 2022 11:00:00 AM

Machine Gun Kelly brought back pop punk in a big way with 2020’s Tickets to My Downfall, and the commercial success and award recognition for that album has been paving the way for a new class of rockers. From new artist collabs with Blink-182’s legendary drummer Travis Barker to the nostalgic line-up of ‘90s/’00s emo-rock heavyweights on the When We Were Young festival line-up, there’s no denying pop punk’s presence in the zeitgeist and its role in defining this new decade of music.

If Rock Is The New Jazz, What Does That Mean For Artists And Fans?

Posted by Arturno Lovazzano on Jul 27, 2021 10:00:00 AM

For music lovers from Gen X to Boomers, the unthinkable has recently happened. While an emerging trend since the turn of the century, it’s now clear that rock music is no longer the most popular music genre in the US. Rock ruled the charts for over 40 years, but before that jazz was the dominant preference for most listeners, especially teenagers and young adults. Is Rock the New Jazz?

It's a Trap! Celebrating the Trap DNA in Pop Music around the World

Posted by Juan Hernandez-Cruz on Jul 6, 2021 7:02:28 PM

When we look at the last 20+ years of music, to say that hip hop has become a pillar of popular music would be an understatement. 

The same could be said for trap music and, although we often use the beat and hi-hat as identifiers of the sound, it’s also differentiated by vocalization, composition, and lyrical tropes. This allows trap as a genre to be more absorbable and easier to mix, therefore the spectrum of influence is wide.

Pop is Perking Up

Posted by Dario Slavazza & Eric "Stens" Stensvaag on Dec 6, 2020 8:56:10 PM

Last December, our curation team made a handful of Music Trends for 2020 predictions, including that “songs have been getting slower, that’s going to change soon.” While this year has been full of unpleasant experiences, this modest prediction has proven accurateresulting in a welcome number of upbeat, energetic chart hits. While others are busy publishing their year-end lists (which we also love), we wanted to celebrate some of the biggest artists and songs behind this trend of musical acceleration.
