Words don’t hold as much value during this melodic-age.
Of course it makes it harder for fans to understand songs like Shy Glizzy’s “Rounds”, but on the other hand, it draws more attention towards different factors of music. Not only are the melody and beat of “Rounds” extremely important to the song, but the emotions and vibes displayed have much more weight. And we can almost evaluate these songs much faster since the verses and chorus sound like one continuos section.
Some of us might be opposed to this new musical approach, but ultimately it’s changing the way we listen to traditional rap/hip-hop music. I’m definitely not saying that the whole realm of music should follow suit, but check out “Rounds” below and let us know what you think in the comments.
