* 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).

* 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.

*** In turn, an alternate scene dubbed by the media as the "anti-[[Music/BritneySpears Britney]]" movement made headway after the success of AvrilLavigne, a teenage star who countered the trend of teenage pop performers by [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth writing (or co-writing) their own material and performing with musical instruments]], adopting a more "rock" image and sound, downplaying the sexualized, slick, choreographed IdolSinger image Britney and her fellow pop stars adopted, and by asserting (or giving the impression of asserting) control of their musical input, often with a feministic "Girl Power" message attached to it. Artists like Music/MichelleBranch, Music/VanessaCarlton, Skye Sweetnam, and Music/SaraBareilles followed Avril, while Music/DemiLovato and Music/TaylorSwift took strong cues from that scene within more commercial styles. Music/MandyMoore, who began as a Britney-like teen pop starlet (with dyed blonde hair), even tried to re-emerge in the movement after her reinvention with her album ''Wild Hope''.
