* Music/FrankSinatra: Started of as a teen idol, admired by countless women and hated by equally many men. His success paved the way for, of course, countless good looking male and thus bankable male singers, from Music/ElvisPresley, Music/CliffRichard, Music/TheBeatles, all those boys bands, Music/MichaelJackson (in his early days) to Music/JustinBieber.

** Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine's "Cruise" and Music/LukeBryan's "That's My Kind of Night" spawned the widespread "bro-country" movement of 2013 and 2014. Many country songs in this timespan have a strong hip-hop influence to them, and are usually about hot girls, beer, and trucks. Their success has also rubbed off on collaborators, such as "Cruise" co-writer Chase Rice and former Luke Bryan merchandise vendor Cole Swindell, both of whom draw heavily from FGL and Luke in their own material although they're far from the only new acts to do so. "Bro-country" became so big that in the second half of 2014, Maddie & Tae mocked it with "Girl in a Country Song".

** Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman" and to a lesser extent, Music/JasonAldean's "Hicktown" both seem to have started the long-lasting trend of hard-rock country songs in which the singers assert that yes, they are country singers because they listen to Music/MerleHaggard and Music/GeorgeJones, they wear boots and worn-out jeans, they're bad boys/girls who love their mamas, etc. Most singers were brought to this by way of John Rich of Big & Rich, who wrote the aforementioned songs but has mostly backed off from songwriting.

* In the JapanesePopMusic world, large-scale IdolSinger groups are known for their longevity with their unique concept of rotating members, where older members "graduate" and new members are inducted as new "generations", as well as smaller-scale projects where select members perform and promote in groups known as "sub-units." The first IdolSinger group known for implementing this concept dates back to Onyanko Club in the 80s, and their successful formula has led to many other idol groups using this concept, including [[Music/HelloProject Morning Musume]], Music/{{AKB48}}, and Music/{{NCT}}.

* In the early to mid [[TheNineties 90's]] R&B acts followed 2 archetypes. One type was the 4 to 5 member group type with gospel-inspired harmonies ala En Vogue and Boyz II Men. The second type followed the 2 to 3 group member formula that was based on a [[DarkerAndEdgier edgy]], [[HotterAndSexier sexually explicit]] street/Hip-Hop look and sound ala Music/{{TLC}} and SWV (the latter toned down their look though). Some were terrible rehashes and copycats, while others were good in their own right.

* Once Music/BoneThugsNHarmony became popular a lot of other rappers emerged with a melodic R&B styled rap delivery (minus the speed).

Added DiffLines:

* The smash success of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" remix (with Justin Bieber) in summer 2017 led to several other reggaeton songs getting remixes with mainstream pop artists, such as J Balvin's "Mi Gente" with Music/{{Beyonce}}, "Subeme La Radio" by Enrique Iglesias and Sean Paul, and "Bailemos" by CNCO featuring Little Mix.

* Another trend that begin at the turn of the millennium. The "Latin Boom." It started with Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez, and then there was a long string of people singing in both English and Spanish (Shakira, Marc Anthony, Thalia, Paulina Rubio). Even Music/ChristinaAguilera got in on the game.

* Back in TheNineties, after Music/{{Nirvana}} really blew up, record labels scrambled to sign any act that was even remotely grunge-y. The absurdity reached a fever pitch when Sony Records went all the way to Australia to sign Silverchair, whose members weren't even old enough to shave. [[CrazyEnoughToWork It worked.]]

* MitchBenn's "Everything Sounds Like Music/{{Coldplay}} Now" satirises the fact that, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin everything sounds like Coldplay now]]. Whether he was aware that two of the bands that he name-checks in the song [[OlderThanTheyThink did it first]] is unknown. Either way, the song is hilarious.
