January: The month belonged to Olivia Rodriguez excellent Taylor Swift influenced “driver’s license,” with a sensational 2.3 BILLION  streams on Spotify alone. The other shocker here is that after two years or so of finding sadgirl-boy -sadteens if you prefer,  bedroom electronics underwhelming,  the genre came into its own with jxdn, Olivia, Tate McRae, and, although clearly not text book, the indie pop band Sun June. Nothing that great for hip hop… which is usually my go to genre…

February: another killer month for pop music, between EDM and bedroom pop even hip hop has taken a back seat for a month. with albums on the quiet side,  that one song came into its own, whether it is Tom Jones dance cover of a folk pop classic or Cardi B with another ear candy gonna roll up the charts.  And the biggest song of the month by far, Olivia Rodiguez’s “Drivers License” given the ultimate accolade, a sketch on SNL.
