2019 was another year for music. There is been so much good and bad projects overall. Even though the year isn’t technically over, 2019 has had some great albums. Different artists this year I think tried to expand more than fans what were used to hearing and tried experimenting. It worked for some artists and didn’t work for others as well. On the other hand, many artists created projects that I personally enjoyed. Some can agree that these were albums to highlight the year.
Hip-Hop has been around for many years and has told the story of how different people are struggling and can relate to each other. Hip-Hop is about sharing your struggles and realizing everyone who listens have that one thing in common and you can turn it into art. I have been listening to hip-hop for years now. I grew up on rap greats like Nas, Jay-Z, Lil’ Kim, 50-Cent, Eminem, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and many more. Ever since then, I have started paying real close attention to what these musical geniuses say. Now in this generation, only a few people are actually continuing to do what hip-hop has been for the last years and making it into the right way. I pay attention to the lyrics, which help people relate and listen. Also, I listen to authenticity as rappers talk about real-life situations and not fake things, and trying to be someone they are not. I recommend some new listeners take this into perspective of these new artists. I believe after listening for a long time, these 10 rappers of the new school are finishing the path “old school” rappers started.
Disclaimer: This list is for entertainment purposes only and it is not meant to demean the beauty or talent of any of the members. Beauty is subjective and depending on the country or culture we grew up in, we might see it differently. This list is just my opinion and an opinion is not a fact. As a side not, I would like to mention that I have included music videos used in my previous list as well as new music videos released since then. I also included special clips for this list. Dreamcatcher has been gaining a lot of attention especially since a lot of people consider them very talented and comeback with good song, but they still have not won a music show win.
Music can change the world. ~ Beethoven
First, allow me to preface the following list by stating I don’t intentionally mean to disparage any of these artists or their work. These are merely my honest knee-jerk reactions triggered whenever I hear these songs. I’ve compiled this list primarily for my own entertainment as well as other music aficionados. Music is very subjective, therefore; I realize these are only my opinions, which should be taken with a grain of salt and are not any more or less valid than anyone else’s. After all, I’m sure a lot of people similar feelings about many of my favorite songs and/or artists. With that said, please continue at your own risk.
Harry Styles by Harry Styles has literally been the fault of about 53 of my mental breakdowns in the last two years. Does he even know what he's doing to us? Does he?
"Harry Styles: Live on Tour" birthed some of the best live covers I've ever heard in my life, seriously. Some of these songs, I've literally only heard Harry's version, and now, I can't un-hear them, and let's be clear: I don't think I want to.
We all have that one artist that sticks with us as we grow older. For me, that artist is KISS (I know... look at me now). The neat thing about having them be my childhood artist is that, I look at the way they've impacted my taste on music, and how listening to them got me into so much other music early on. Listening to what my dad listened to really helped me expand my own musical horizons. Now, not everyone gets the chance to listen to as much music as I did growing up. However, it's never too late to start listening to music you've never even heard before. Here are three reasons you should definitely go on Spotify, and just find something to listen to.
Texas is known to do everything bigger and better. They have big hair, big servings of food, and big personalities. Some big music artists have come out of the state of Texas. A Texas solar powered stadium easily fills up when these artists come to town. These are the top 5 artists to come from the state of Texas.
It is all around us. Sometimes it is in our faces and other times in is buried in the background. It gets us moving and keeps us entertained. Music is a bigger part of our lives than we may realize. That is why we are sharing with you today this list of the ways in which music enriches us.
Music connects on a far deeper level than people are ready to admit with obstacles such as languages and linguistic abilities pushed to the back burner when chords and rhythms hold sway via emotions expressed in different forms.
