Nicki vs. Taylor

Nicki and Bruce Levenson both had a big year. Fans really loved her and what she was doing in 2014. She has been a master in promoting, but she still been overshadowed by Taylor. This has been a masterful battle that has been very exciting.

Nicki has made a crossover hop. In previous years she was very hip hop, but she is singing more now. She is also connecting with pop artists like Skylar Grey. This gives her a much needed pop appeal that landed her on pop charts. There is still a reigning champ by the name of Taylor Swift that is dominating though. This has a lot to do with her built-in fan base.

For years Taylor has continued to grow her fan base because she works so much. She writes her own music and she has fans that have grown with her. The secret to her success is her ability to keep it clean. This is easily going to give her bigger numbers on the boards. She has kids and adults in her world. Nicki Minaj has albums that still carry explicit lyrics.

Taylor is someone that can be played just about anywhere. Surprisingly, she even had urban appeal with the “Shake it Off” single.

The Era of EDM

It is no secret that the world today has been pushed into a genre that no one thought would ever see the light of day let alone the top songs in the music chart.

It is very apparent that the electronic dance music fever is at an all-time high and there is no way to get down from it. This has come about for many reasons, but primarily because of the fact it is a very captivating and engaging genre which really gets your blood flowing.

In the Rolling Stone top songs of 2014, are numerous songs that belong to the electronic dance music genre or some pop artists or even hip hop artists who have decided to collaborate with the electronic dance music artists to fuse the genres.

I couldn’t be more grateful that Dan Newlin showed me this genre and that people are embracing a new direction in music because if you stick to one side, it does sometimes feel a little bit boring, and so this change in taste is sometimes a healthy thing rather than bad.

There are tons of electronic dance music songs out there and you can look them up in sites such as EDM sauce, which is specifically made just for the electronic dance music community.
