What Will Hyper Pop Be Like in 100 Years?

Against Deception | December 15, 2020

Hyperpop is an irregularly defined term used to describe a style of pop music characterized by an excess of melody and lyrics. Artists often labeled with the term often incorporate several avant-garde senses, borrowing ideas from alternative, pop, and electronic music genres. Influenced by artists such as the Beatles, this style can be poppy, jittery, distorted, or dream-like. Pop artists have used the style to create hit singles such as “Iris” by The Beatles, “Relax” by Chic, and “Tears In Heaven” by Skid Row. In the late 1990s, Britney Spears utilized the term to describe her energetic style of pop.

 

The term was first used in the 1970s to refer to a new genre that combined elements of pop, folk, jazz, blues, techno, and post-punk. The origin of the term can be traced to the colloquial use of the term “Pop Music”. Popular musicologist Richard Jackson first described the new pop genre as “PC Music” in his book Pop Music: The Definitive Guide.

 

Hyperpop is often considered a sub-genre of new wave, characterized by high pitched, repetitive beats. PC Music was co-opted by many famous rappers and musicians like Kanye West, Jay Z, and Rihanna. Popular PC Music artists include Kanye West, Akon, and Rihanna. With the rise of the new millennium, the popularity of hyperpop peaked, leading listeners to clamor for more. Today, the style of pop music is still highly appreciated by mainstream audiences.

 

The PC Music genre continues to grow in popularity. Many major music labels are currently attempting to put it into a distinct category of its own. One such label, imprints like ARK Music, Kodeeks, and Def Jam have made several attempts to separate the PC Music from the rest of the pop genre. On many occasions, independent artists in the PC Music underground have released their own independent albums which have been well received by the public. Independent artists can be credited to formative moments in the growth of the hyperpop genre, such as the formation of the underground PC Music crew. In fact, the emergence of such a significant number of indie talents can be attributed to the fact that PC Music is simply getting started.

 

Pop artists like Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears, and Miley Cyrus have contributed to the expansion of the new genre. Pop artists often incorporate elements of new genres into their albums; however, pop artists who draw on heavy metal or punk elements have yet to make a large impact upon the industry. In addition to these pop/rock artists, rap/hip-hop artists have also made a name for themselves within the hyperpop scene. Jay Z, Beyonce Knowles, and Lil Wayne have all released music with a heavy focus on the new wave. While pop artists have come and gone, new genres like the hyperpop will likely continue to grow in popularity.

 

The popularity of the new style is attributed to three distinct aspects of the style. One, the sound is considered “infectious” by many music critics and fans alike. Hyper pop artists often inject pop elements into their songs that are not typically found in most mainstream music, thus creating a more intense sound that many listeners have described as unique and catchy. Second, the style is known for being unpredictable; a listener who has not heard an album featuring the particular element that is featured on the track will have a difficult time identifying what the song is even about.

 

While the sound may sound unique, there are many factors that contribute to the growth of the hyper pop music genre. One, the artists who are popular within the new style are almost always male, as studies have shown. As such, the sound is often associated with men who fit the stereotypical gender roles of being aggressive, macho, or hyper. However, the new style is not only created by men, as there are a number of female vocalist who are also prominent in the bubblegum punk genre. In fact, there are now female vocalists who have gained popularity in the bubblegum punk or hyper pop music scene.

 

Lastly, although the artists who have become popular in the hyper pop artists’ circle are mostly male, the music is becoming very popular amongst women. This is due in large part to the band names, which have all but ceased to be offensive in recent years. bubblegum punk has grown to become a popular genre among women who appreciate the edgy yet catchy melodies, as well as those who are interested in showcasing their own unique vocal talents.
