The Best Music Moments of the Decade

From Adele to Bieber, Drake to Gaga, Kanye to Taylor – these are the artists that defined a musical decade.

It’s impossible to overstate the cultural ubiquity of now-household names like Beyoncé and Rihanna, or the critical acclaim heaped on Kendrick Lamar and Lords of the Underground. There were comebacks (Missy Elliott, anyone?), posthumous releases (Michael Jackson’s Xscape), and game-changing TV moments (Miley Cyrus at the VMAs). We said goodbye to some legends ( Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie) and hello to a new generation of musical greatness.

This decade has been one for the ages – and these are the songs that will help us remember it.

The past decade has seen some incredible changes in the music industry. We’ve gone from buying CDs to streaming our favorite tunes, and the way we consume music has changed dramatically. This list takes a look at some of the best music trends of the decade, from the rise of K-pop to the popularity of EDM.

1. The Rise of K-Pop

K-pop has taken the world by storm in recent years, thanks to groups like BTS and Blackpink. This genre of music is known for its catchy melodies, dazzling choreography, and stylish visuals, and it’s easy to see why it’s so popular. K-pop has broken down barriers and introduced a new generation to Korean culture, and we can’t wait to see what the next decade has in store for this exciting genre.

2. The Resurgence of Indie Rock

After being overshadowed by genres like EDM and pop in recent years, indie rock made a big comeback in the 2010s. Bands like The National, Vampire Weekend, and Arcade Fire released some of their best work this decade, and indie rock became cool again. This genre is all about authenticity and DIY spirit, and we’re glad to see it back in the spotlight.

3. The Dominance of Hip-Hop

Hip-hop continued to dominate the charts this past decade, thanks to artists like Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and J Cole. This genre has always been popular with young people, but it reached new heights in the 2010s. Hip-hop is now one of the most popular genres in the world, and its influence can be seen in everything from fashion to film. There’s no doubt that hip-hop will continue to be a major force in music in the coming years.

4. The Rise of EDM

EDM exploded in popularity this past decade, thanks to artists like Calvin Harris, Avicii, and Kygo. This genre is all about catchy melodies and thumping basslines, and it’s perfect for dancing or chilling out. EDM festivals like Tomorrowland have become some of the most popular events on the planet, and there’s no sign that this trend is slowing down anytime soon.

5 .The Proliferation of Streaming Services

Streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music have changed the way we listen to music, making it easier than ever before to access our favorite tunes. This convenience comes at a price though – streaming services have caused sales of CDs and vinyl records to plummet as people increasingly turn to digital formats. It remains to be seen how this trend will impact the music industry in the long run but there’s no doubt that streaming is here to stay
