The future is here or at least pop wants you to think that. The music sounds cool, but unfortunately it seems everyone’s copping the same style. And it’s impossible to tell who started this trend and who the copiers are. Another thing about electro pop is the singer doesn’t necessarily have to be able to sing in order for to sound good. A good example of this is Britney Spears. She came back on the cusp of the electro-pop trend and I think this type of music is good for her. I actually like a few of her songs. That hasn’t happened for me since the beginning of her career.
The trend is full of pantless looks, awesome shades, shininess, face make up, leggings, catsuits and awesome hair. Look at Lady Gaga, Keri Hilson and Ciara.
Lady Gaga’s prism dress
Keri Hilson in “Return the Favor”
Ciara “Go Girl”
Christina Aguilera “Keeps gettin’ better”
Of course men are on this electo pop wave too
There seems to be a real push for female electro-pop singers. So Kanye’s kind of out numbered right now not that he’s alone. Personally I like electro-pop, but I like real instruments better, so whenever I hear these songs with real instruments I love them even better. What do you think about this new electro-pop trend?
