No geopolitical implications in this article, so I’ll keep it brief. I think it’s pretty appalling how unidimensional pop music is, even artists who I enjoy (David Guetta) feature prominently on this list. I guess music is a business so it makes sense but its pretty disheartening to see “artistry” be so devalued. With that said, there has perhaps never been a better time for people’s talent to emerge through platforms like soundcloud and youtube. Regardless, interesting article worthy of consideration!
