The USA new golden music generation is emerging, bringing a lot of surprises, prospects, and changes to this century. In the past, the late 1980s and early 1990s of the 20th century were considered a golden period. A host of young artists – later became the golden generation of music history – appeared. Many of them have changed the world with music, and have kept the unbreakable records. Nevertheless, the USA new golden music generation gradually proves that their abilities are not inferior compared to the previous one. All Know-How will show you how their talents, as well as their well-performances, stir the world.
Their names are extremely popular. The King of Pop Michael Jackson, the world’s most accomplished musician and the queen of the dance Madonna, the voice of the century Whitney Houston, the unique nightingale Mariah Carey, the European ageless princess Kylie Minogue, the world’s No. 1 white male R & B singer George Michael, heroic Janet Jackson, etc. All of them have created a history generation, and become the benchmark for the following artists. However, since they appeared, there has been not a succeeding generation. Although critics have been trying to call the next generation the possible names, these artists still have no opponents.
From 2015 to 2016, the albums of the USA new golden music generation suddenly came into sight. They reminded people immediately about the golden generation in the past.
Adele As Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston with her sopranoAdele’s voice is a husky mezzo-soprano, while Whitney’s is a soprano. The comparison between these two voices may be lame, but her 25 brilliantly successful albums have proved her talent. Everyone admits Adele is the voice of the 21st century. Despite the difference in pitch, their vocals have the same amazing common: the vibration and inspiration in each note. It can be seen that such Adele’s songs as Someone Like You or Hello can compare with such Whitney’s songs as “I Will Always Love You” or “I Have Nothing”. However, Adele is never able to get over the vibe of Whitney’s high note. But it is clear that her appearance also eases the fact that Whitney had passed away.
Ariana Grande As Mariah Carey
They sing in a performance togetherCalling Ariana Grande “new Mariah Carey” is not new. Nevertheless, the name was too troublesome for the young girl and nearly prevented her career. At the beginning of 2016, Ariana Grande unexpectedly changed and returned to her third album Dangerous Woman. Everyone was surprised that she has overcome prejudice and matured. From a young talent, she confidently becomes a “dangerous woman” with her deadly charm in voice, style, and appearance…The Dangerous Woman reminds about Mariah Carey with her 1993 album Music Box (coincidentally, also the third album). Never has the name “the new Mariah” been so appropriate to Ariana. Hence, she deserves the USA new golden music generation all over the world.
Justin Bieber as Michael Jackson
Justin Bieber is expected to be Michael Jackson in the future. It is easy to understand that someone may not agree with this comparison. However, Justin and Michael have gained achievements when they are just boys. Moreover, both of them overcome the temptation of success and popularity to pursue the further career. Justin Bieber was not just a boy who wears sagging, was naught and flirted with girls. He composed and produced most of his hits like the King of Pop. 2015 was extremely a turning point with the album Purpose – a real music revolution. The songs such as Sorry, What Do You Mean had changed EDM. His songs make people who are allergic to this noisy music cannot deny their sophistication. Then, during 2016, a series of relatively similar EDM songs appeared, as a music trend. They were also two songs making Justin the first male singer owning more than 1- billion- view MVs on YouTube. And it was clear that Love Yourself was one of the biggest hits of 2016. In a few weeks, it might become Justin’s third MV to hit a billion views. Justin is only 22 years old, younger than Michael Jackson when he released the historic album, Thriller, two years. That year was 1982, and Michael was at the age of 24. Justin still has plenty of time to prove his talent the best pop singer of the new age.
Taylor Swift As Madonna
However, both of them have the same strong spiritPerhaps this comparison might be the eeriest in all comparison. Taylor does not seem to have a common thing with Madonna! One is a country-pop singer who is gentle and discreet; another is the queen of the dance floor. But they are extremely similar. Both of them are warriors, prefer to challenge prejudice, break the old path and win. Despite different clothing styles and behaviors, they have the same “revolutionary spirit”. They are blond-hair girls possessing their confidence in talent. People decry their vocals, so they compensate by composing pop songs that only they can write.
1989 album was Taylor Swift’s music a “pop redefinition” – the way Madonna did with all her albums. Until now, if Madonna is one who earns the most money from her intriguing tour, the only person likely threatening her is a simple Taylor Swift. In 2016, Taylor was more similar to Madonna when she faced with so many scandals about the private life. This was like the Madonna of the 91s, 92s. Of course, she did not care – the same with Madonna! To talk about inheritance, what Taylor inherited from Madonna is a self which is bigger than the world.
The Weeknd As George Michael
George Michael in the 1980s made the world mad because of coloring white the “black-monopoly” R & B. People, from bewilderment to admiration, realized that the whites can sing R & B very beautifully. What about The Weeknd, a black person sings R & B songs, how could it be? The Weeknd is also changing this “monopolistic” music but in a different way. He colors this “black-monopoly music” white by coordinating it with “white-monopoly” music such as euro pop, electro-pop. This is just the beginning.
Over a month ago, The Weeknd introduced his new single, Starboy. In this MV, the first scene is the new “The Weeknd” guy “kills” the old “The Weeknd” guy, who greatly succeeded in his pure black R & B single. Starboy has a pure white background music performed by the famous French DJ couple who play electro- Daft Punk, with “pure black” lyrics and vocals. This is as a milk chocolate that has never existed, but it turns out to be the top of the tops. And once tasting, people are addicted immediately! This is actually recreated, like the way George Michael has done. People expect the new album’s appearance of this young talent, and it is expected to be one of the most remarkable albums of 2017.
The U.S. New Golden Music Generation: When Do They Emerge?
It is possible that Justin Bieber will release a top album like Michael Jackson’s Thriller in two years. Moreover, the Blank Space of naughty Taylor Swift is as Madonna’s Like a Virgin. It might be that one day she will write great songs like Like A Prayer or Ray of Light. It is worth to be excited! The USA new golden music generation is gradually affirming their talents. All, most likely, will start in 2017!.
