The audience, the tastes and the way of consuming music have changed a lot in the last ten years. While the physical sales of discs triumphed in the 1990s, success in music is now counted by the number of reproductions on platforms such as YouTube, Spotify or iTunes. It should also be borne in mind that the streaming listening audience is mostly young, so it is not surprising that the genre of fashion is now hip hop, closer to urban cultures.

Hip hop breaks down rock for the first time in history

For the first time in history, for more than 25% of Americans rap, R & B and hip hop are now their first choice, dethroning the – so far – genre king, rock, who remains 21% of the audience, According to the Nielsen musical rapport. Artists like Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Drake or Beyoncé are some of the most famous names and the ones that get more sales.

It seems that the golden age of the rockers is over and the rappers begin. It’s no longer just Jay Z, who, along with his wife Beyoncé forms one of the most powerful couples in the world, but have added many more names to the list of influential hip hop artists.

In the last top ten of the well-known Nielsen reports, six of the ten most-heard albums belong to singers who have made the verses recited and the street rhythms their distinctive signs of identity. The albums of Lamar, The Weeknd, Migos, Future, Post Malone and Drake are responsible for this trend change, which together total around seven million reproductions.

Rapper Lamar’s ‘DAMN’ album has been running for three consecutive weeks at number one in the United States, Drake has beaten his own record of 245 million hits on his album ‘More Life’ in just one week and Future Has achieved the top spot on two different albums for several consecutive weeks. They are data that condemn the moment of glory that the groups that are dedicated to hip hop are living.

However, the reign of rap at the moment has not been seen as reflected in sales of albums where rock is still the music genre that sells with an overwhelming 40% compared to 17% achieved by the street rhythms.

Hip hop not only triumphs in the US, without leaving our borders you can find one of the greatest exponents of rap in Spanish: Javier Ibarra, better known as Kase.O. “Kase.O has returned to the exercise. The first sentence is for those who are from the beginning, the second is for those who were waiting, now I want to see you celebrating “began the rapper Zaragozano his new album ‘The Circle’.
