Pop I'm on board with and Pop I'm bored with.
- •On Board With: Fifth HarmonyFun. Genuinely fun. Female-driven pop groups haven't had their moment the way boy bands have since The Spice Girls. Fifth Harmony are more than worthy successors.
- •Bored With: Meghan TrainorEverything she releases feels forced and disingenuous and also, she feels like a female chauvinist.
- •On Board With: Ariana GrandeThree solid pop albums. Her new album has two GOATs: Greedy and Into You.
- •Bored With: EDM artists featuring SingersTurn up the BPMs, bring in a famous or on-the-cusp singer you should know, and you've got me 😴😴😴
- •On Board With: Alessia CaraI wasn't crazy about Here, but Wild Things and a lot of other songs on her album are 💯
- •Bored With: Selena GomezI can't ever get into her stuff. It all feels like a musical first draft. Kill Em with Kindness? Ooof!
