Below is the list of 6 current mainstream artist that make their respective genre more interesting, brilliant, and innovative than ever. Every new artist that born after these guys, sure got a big hell of shoes to fill in to, because nobody make music more relevant than these guys. Nobody pioneering Music like these guys. And hell, I can safely say, they are The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be.
POP SCENE, JUSTIN BIEBER.
He is the first artist to have seven songs from a debut album chart on the Billboard Hot 100. He’s winning Artist of the Year at the 2010 American Music Awards, and being nominated for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards. His 3D biopic-concert film Justin Bieber: Never Say Never – had an opening weekend gross that nearly matched the record for the biggest opening weekend for a concert-film. He’s guest starring at CSI as “troubled teen who is faced with a difficult decision regarding his only brother”(Even though his character is killed, an inside rumor says that he will be resurrected twenty years later as a Nazi bounty Hunter, animal lover, Rapper and Superboy in CSI:Middle of Nowhere, the gazillionth spin off from CSI Franchise). He had mega superstar Oscar winning actresses like Kim Kardashian or multiple Grammy award winners Selena Gomez, as his fuck Buddy. Nobody is bigger than this guy today. I don’t know why a lot of people(especially all the loser geek in the Internet) trash this kid. Probably because they’re jealous of him, but come on guys, listen carefully to all his songs and give him a break. Trust me you will change the meaning of the word Masterpiece to Justin Bieber. His most popular hits, BABY, is a million times better version than Duran Duran’s Hungry Like a Wolf. His version of Somebody to love is nothing like Queen’s Somebody to Love. If nothing means more beautiful, catchy, and more sparkling. And don’t forget his exceptional debut album. My World 2.0. What a brilliant matrix way to name an album.
ROCK/METAL SCENE, Avril Lavigne
Janis Joplin, Alanis Morissette, Aretha Franklin, Joan Jett, Tina Turner, Patti Smith is nothing compared Avril. Do you think I’m bullshiting? Avril voices a character in Over the Hedge animated film, Avril had her own brand of perfume called Black Star and Forbidden Rose, and check this, She’s Marriaged to the lead singer of greatest rock band in the World SUM 41, and making a baffling soundtrack for Tim Burton Greatest Movie, Alice in Wonderland. How’s that for a bullshit huh? But all those godly achievement is nothing compared to her musical talent. Complicated, arguably her most famous song, is amazing. Every time I hear and watch the Music Video, its like listening to Enter the Sandman and Stairway to Heaven in one Package. But Avril never gives up. She keep surpassing her previous magnificent songs. With songs like Girlfriend, Sk8ter B0i,My Happy Ending, she became Osama Bin Laden most favorite singer(The tatoo in Bin Laden right arm when his body being autopsy is Avril’s name). Especially after the single What the Hell is came out. Its the MAGNUM OPUS of Music Industry. There are even a few music critiques in the Ethiophia(The country where earliest homo sapiens remains found) comparing the single with The Last Judgement in Sistine Chapel. Say goodbye to Metallica, Jimi Hendrix, U2, Led Zeppelin. This is Avril Lavigne’s Era.
JAZZ SCENE, Michael Buble
He is the true Crooner of our planet. Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole should be proud just to be standing in the same stage as this guy, the Legendary Michael Buble. “Why? All those guys wasn’t really a Jazz singer anyway”. Oh, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Glenn Miller should be ashamed too. Because Michael Buble will be the only name who can mix the most complicated/unorthodox/improvise/dazzling jazz tunes with easy peachy Jazz Lounge style. And instead living the years dangerously like all those maestro did, Buble making millions of dollar from his career. Someday, when people start associating jazz with Michael Buble is the day where rainbow is deficating unicorn.
R&B/HIP HOP SCENE, Black Eye Peas
If I had to choose who’s the most talented god gifted songwriters ever grace this planet, Black Eye Peas is in the top of my list. Their song ” I Gotta A Feeling” is a true art. The repetition of the chorus ‘tonight’s gonna be a good night’ for roughly a minute and a half is amazingly creative. Auto-tune, rhyming the same word with itself (“Up” and “Up”), naming days of the week, all those Einstein stuff is also can be found in that song. And eventually, it became the first song in digital history to sell over 7 million digital copies in the United States, the most downloaded song on iTunes in Australia since 2006, and spent consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, the longest-running number-one single of 2009. I’m happy to see that majority of people finally knows and acknowledged what real music is all about. Finally! Even lame artist like Radiohead, or Daft Punk is admitting that they’re stealing from Black Eye Peas.
