Teenagers of our time listen to the “new” style of music, and usually our elderly don’t like the music the teens listen to now and they think that the music that is created now is not even close to proper music.
Personally I can see that Rap music has developed a lot mostly now around the beginning of the 21st century. There is techno music that developed a lot too and pop too. But of course music genres such as classic, jazz, rock, country, latin and many other.
Since we are talking about what music teenagers are listening to now, then I would say that it is mostly 3:
There are many different artists of each of those 3 genres but for me my personal favorite is French Montana, Drake, Post Malone, Maroon 5.
I live in Cyprus and our language is Greek, so we have many Greek artists that sing different genres. One of the most famous Greek rappers is Light. Light has been number 1 rapper for a couple of years and most teens really like his songs. A singer that sings more pop songs is Eleni Foureira, her music is listened not only by teens but also by eldery. Konstantinos Argiros is a famous Greek singer that has pop/classical music and is also considered as one of the best.
Talking about what music can mean to a teenager, it can mean A LOT
Personally me as a teenager music for me, is something that is in my life every day from the moment when I wake up-until I go to sleep.
Why can music be an important part of a teens life?
Now of course I am not only saying that music can be important in only teens lives, but I am going to touch only teenagers because I am a teenager myself and I can really relate.
Music can be important in a teenager’s life because it ACTUALLY helps deal with emotions, issues and usually switches your brain to relaxation mode if you are stressed about something.
I have passed through stages of heart brakes, unfairness, situations in which I didn’t know what to do and what action to take and I needed a break to think and music was one of the first things that helped me focus. Many teenagers use music in a way of something that helps them.
If you haven’t tried music, maybe you should because it might open up a lot to you.
