Such a fun podcast! Another thing that I noticed about TikTok songs is that they are particularly fitting for makeover/transition videos, which leads me to think about why that before-after trend is so popular and has never seemed to die out.
I believe the music industry nowadays is also gravitating toward Y2K/early internet nostalgia. PinkPantheress is a case in point, I think she is one of the few artists who could recreate the Y2K feels so perfectly. Another embodiment of Internet music is PC Music or the hyperpop scene in general. It is so interesting to see a group of musical artists who look like they’re made solely out of 0s and 1s.
Hey, I loved it! Fantastic chemistry and really well prepared. You got yourself a fan!
I remember when Macklemore was first on Billboard as the first independent artist, ever? I was surprised by both: that it hasn’t happened before and that it happened overall. I love this transition tho. It’s more attainable, gives you access to bascially everyone without any “middle-man” and also drives the quality.
I concur with Jan on the chemistry and fandom!
As an elder millennial I would like to take it a bit further with regards to how TikTok seemed to have changed the game, but how it is just a change from one platform, television, to another, internet. I vividly remember the popularity of Missy videos that had bad ass choreo that you would show off to in the club, because well camera phones weren’t working that well, so the transfer of the dances happened offline in classrooms and such. Hiphop songs would be titled what the dance was. You just had to keep your relevancy in the club and artists fought for that exact same attention spam. They just have it a lot harder now, because how it has shortened over time. The music industry hasn’t really changed. It just paced up.
