Have you closely listened to the songs that are popular now versus the ones your parents listened to back in the day?
Of course time has changed and things are different, however back in the day music had substance. Now the majority of music is about sex, drugs, alcohol, money, or sex-oh I already mentioned that right?! You get my point. Some artists throw words around so much it’s ridiculous. I mean be creative! Is money and women all you can talk about, because life consists of much more?
How far will the music industry have to go until we say enough? Of course, there is still good substantial music out there, don’t get me wrong. However, the music industry has lowered its standards and in return people are also following along. Anyone can make a song now. They don’t even have to be talented. All they need is the look and the right sexual dance moves, to get the crowd going.
What do you think?
All I’m saying is not all music has to be about the women you slept with, or how many dollars you’re making. Be original for crying out loud. That’s why I love some old school music, because it was something you can hold onto. It didn’t just have a nice beat-but it also had substantial lyrics.
Some of the new school be on point, however sometimes the beat is better than the song itself. There needs to be a balance. I applaud the artists still making substantial music during this day and age, because it’s far to few.
