Every year, I am going to surprise. I think those who try to predict things and stay ahead of the trend are likely to break the fun of experiencing music for the first time. Sometimes we are eager to take the lead and forget the moment is really important. I remember my DAMN at Coachella and Kendrick Lamar. Fall; I drove back to the house where I lived and put on DAMN. The first time in streaming service. I did not get pushed. I did not use any type of Apple Music privilege. I just listened to it and drove at night in Palm Springs, which was fantastic. I will never forget that moment. If I try to go beyond those moments, I will not have moments that I will never forget.
Streaming is really coming in 2017. We’ve been doing what we did on Beats 1 since 2015, but it all got together in 2017. People recognize that streaming media is the infrastructure of the future and how to connect with artists and music. At least, it is open to me and what will this era be like.
This is an incredibly successful year of rap and hip-hop as it has been established as the most popular style of music in the world; this has long been the case for those who love this type of music, but for the sake of To achieve statistical accuracy also need another important statement. But see how it evolved: this genre really adapted to the way people listen to music. For example, Drake was like rogue Michael Jackson. Just as Michael Jackson really knew how to use music video as a medium, Drake was absolutely certain about the speed and culture of streaming media.
Many young rappers have moved from SoundCloud, such as 21 Savage, Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert, and now have real stream media numbers. Cardi B’s incredible performance this year and number one on the Billboard leaderboard is one of the most exciting times for a long time for a woman’s buttocks. The chart changed, which played a part in her success. When Migos’s “Bad and Boujee” appeared last year, it already had 2.5 billion traffic and entered the top 40. People consume and enjoy music at speeds that radio and other traditional media can not keep up.
“Bodak Yellow” is one of those songs that have an alchemical definition that can not be defined. It is the sum of all the parts, where it came from and how she became an artist. “Who is this who I always wanted to be Man, this is me, “the rhythm is incredible and is the perfect open line, which is an incredible performance, for me it summarizes everything that modern smashing.
There are no national anthems like the New York national anthem. This is “Bodak Yellow” For me: A New York national anthem.
In the meantime, Jay-Z unveiled one of the most mature and thought-out albums of his career. 4:44 is a big step in rap and hip hop music, a real reflection of what kind of person he is now. Jay-Z can work with any producer he wants, and he can write a sausage and smash it. But Jay-Z does not think it’s on his head. He is honest with him during his course and he can always be Marvin Gay or Neil Young (and the album is made by his wife): It does not need to follow a trend, an honest and open record . It makes a strong statement about rap music: If you’re a 40-something artist, do not be afraid to say what you think and do not dress up the current trend in a way that sounds like chasing.
Then there are people like Lil Peep who literally combine the concept of rock music with rap music. People are always talking about how lively rock music is and rap music is good, but Peep is like: “Well, I’m like a guitar.” I was slow to Lil Peep and I was playing Lil Peep. Once I realized what he was going to offer, I started putting everything in Lil Peep. Once I like anything, I go for it.
Every generation faces challenges. What is happening right now in front of these kids, it’s hard to tell them. When you are often surrounded by messages, whether positive or challenging, it can change the way you live. It can bring anxiety and depression.
2017, Public Dialogue on Mental Illness and Anxiety Depression. We are losing people. We have lost the seemingly superb people – it turns out they are not. The more we talk, the less we all feel. Without any problems, Lipipp openly talked about his peers’ anxiety and depression and just continued to push the conversation. I think the success of Lil Peep keeps pace with the times.
Music always reflects the timing of its release, as was the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency. It is dangerous to put the artist’s expectations on the shoulders of artists because they produce music because of what they have to do internally and in many different forms or forms that need to be said. Sometimes the windows look out, sometimes looking at the street, sometimes looking out the window.
I do not think there should be artists looking forward to reflecting on their time, but I do think it is happening. We are still in the first phase of a changing world, and the arts will be reflected over time. There is an overall philosophy: “What are you talking about?” Even if you are talking about your experiences, how do you include it with your audience or your fans so that they are not alone? We long for the community and the thirst for understanding, and we are seeing this growth and growth.
For young artists, streaming is what they know – they do not see any other choice. Streaming media is the cornerstone. You have to enter here and study how to use it. Obviously the radio is still important, but in terms of distribution, the flow is it.
This sense of independence, acquired by the young and young artists from the music industry at the beginning of the millennium, has become a business model. It is no longer a reaction to overpriced CDs or technology giving them access to music; it is now becoming a model for building a career. These artists are leading their conversation, they have direct contact with the audience, and they are working out what they want to say. This is an incredibly positive thing – it just creates more goodies. In the challenge we tried to pass, we started to see a new industry, and the business model finally began to adapt.
