Most pop music sounds like each other recently. The only difference is the singer/producer.
The only pop artist that had a unique sound recently is Gaga and sometimes Rihanna (You don't hear songs like Man Down or Rude Boy much)
I'm saying that it may be catchy, but generic music today sounds the same.
Bey. Drake. Nicki. Bon-Qui-Qui.
Sean Paul - Janet Jackson - Ciara - Whitney Houston - Cassie - Lady Gaga -Destiny's Child - Missy Elliott - Mariah Carey - Lana Del Rey - J. Cole - Mary J. Blige - Frank Ocean - Rihanna - Pitbull - Ameriie - Britney Spears - Eve - Trina - Madonna - Khia - Kanye West
generic music isn't necessarily bad music at all. it just isn't refreshing because it blends in with a lot of the rest of the stuff on radio at a given time. doesn't mean i don't enjoy it and don't know all the words.
Mrs. Carter | Ms. Adkins | Mr. Timberlake I walk with a vengeance and set fire to the rain in my suit & tie!
But you need to be careful, I mean, you can do some generic songs but not an entire album because that make people bored, there will be a certain point you'll need to inovate. But so far I haven't seen anything bad about generic music, just gives you that title of unoriginal.
A generic song can still be innovative and fresh, whether it be lyrically or sonically. All generic songs are not "unoriginal"
This. IMO Motown is an example of this. The songs are cut and paste hit factory material. But the sound itself is unique. Most of their songs could've been sung by any motown artist but not outside the label.
Beyoncé Lady Gaga Little Mix Ciara
J Hud MJ Prince DC Madonna Motown
The Trinity Ms Burke Emeli Sandé Nicki Minaj Janelle Monáe
Marina & The Diamonds Florence & The Machine Ellie Goulding

If anything is being lashed right now it's the Beyhive. Very boring and embarrassing bunch of pages. It's like if me and five of my clones were to start arguing with an Enrique stan about who's more successful and more global.
