1. The first songwriting tip is look for a beat (or write a song yourself) with a very identifiable set of notes to set it off.

Some of the most major hits of last year began with VERY unique 10 second riffs that defined the song almost as much as the actual vocals.

Take a second and “hear in your mind” the first few notes of Post Malone’s “Rockstar”… Drake’s “God’s Plan”… XXXTentacion’s “Sad” or even more recently…

DaBaby’s “Suge”.

2. n the early part of this decade, music seemed to be pretty “lush” with widespread use of epic instrumentation, massive soundscapes, and an overall BIG feel with the production.

Albums like Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”, Kendrick Lamar’s “good kid, M.A.A.D city”, and Drake’s “Take Care” put the audience into what felt like a symphony hall every time we heard a new song.

On the other hand, the second half of this decade has been marked by simpler and simpler production, rhyme choice, and melodies.

Compare the work on those past albums to the simplicity of more recent hits like Migos “Bad and Boujee”, DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One”, or Billie Eilish’s “Bury A Friend”.

3. Which brings us to an important point about technology: don’t be afraid, it’s not going anywhere.

If anything, music is getting MORE experimental. Think of the overt song breaks and tempo changes of “Sicko Mode”, only possible with modern technology.

Think of the eerie notes of rather simplistic songs, at least note-wise in the work of Billie Eilish.

I myself saw this in action when I recently did a track in under an hour with Purps On Tha Beat, producer of recent hits such as “Hear Me Callin’” by JuiceWrld.

He made a very simple beat and then had me go into the booth and just blurt out some melodies.

After about five minutes of this, he took the melodies he liked, chopped them up, reordered them, and the added effects to them.

Within seconds (it seemed like), the entire melody of the beat was based on what was original just singing…

…And it DIDN’T sound like vocals.

4. Which relates to our fourth rule. It should go without saying that genre-bending is the new wave of the future.

Generation Z is finally rolling into maturity, and they are the second generation to grow up with access to every type of song in the book.

While the Lil’ Nas X example is so common it’s cliche now, I would look more towards the career of the late XXXTentacion as a great example of the possibilities of genre bending as a songwriting rule.

XXXTentacion is essentially dropped an entirely different genre on each album – one alternative rock, one rap, one atmospheric R&B-pop… and much more.

The Latin takeover has already begun, as we know…

5. Much like “This Is America”, or even more recently, Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down”…

It’s pretty obvious that politically-bent music is burgeoning. Politically bent ANYTHING is big in this generation.

I’ve often been asked who I think will take the crown from Drake as the #1 GLOBAL rap star (let’s not get into a Kendrick-Drake thing, I’m just saying as far as the POP / RAP charts go…)

And I’ve always said it would likely be someone who was a little more political… but able to do it with pop.

Where is the next Bob Marley, you know?
