Billboard Hot 100 8 years ago: when my 8th grade self was inundated by nothing but pop music perfection from 2007-2011. at the turn of the 2010’s was a renaissance of immaculate dance/pop music along with other certain genres that had previously been popular at the end of the 90’s or early 2000’s. over the course of the 00’s the music of 2010 was a result of the evolution of RnB/hip-hop/rap music over the previous decade. these Top 10 song positions absolutely ruled the radio airwaves at the beginning of the first summer of the decade (streaming wasnt a thing yet, buying digital singles/songs on itunes was the way for the US to consume music): starting with the albums second number one single 8 years ago this week with California Gurls (feat. snoop digg) off of katy perry’s now iconic teenage dream album cycle that was at the beginning of its chart run. by the end of its last single rerelease, it had charted 6 US Hot 100 number 1 singles by mid 2012. OMG by is literally ushers worst song and so fkn annoying. B.o.B only had that one good song and that one good song with hayley williams. kesha was promoting her pop masterpiece debut album. taio cruz has always been a shitty, annoying artist. lady gaga was at the end of the promotion cycle most iconic and record-breaking pop music albums of this century/millenium. black eyed peas have always made really shitty music too but just with the most simplest & catchiest hooks, fergie was the only important or relevant one in the group. bulletproof was a fantastic pop song by la roux, but saddly she never came out with much music after her initial rise & peak on the US Billboard charts since her debut. #memories#somanymemories#popmusic#2010#2010s#billboard#hot100#katyperry#kesha#ladygaga#laroux#teenagedream#animal#thefame#thefamemonster
