  • Alternative: Entered the decade by continuing alternative pop's late 2010's dominance, while also shaking things up by incorporating throwbacks to Pop Punk.
  • Country Music:
  • Dance:
  • Hip-Hop/Rap:
  • Pop: The Weeknd set a record for the longest stay on the Hot 100 with 90 weeks for his 2020 smash "Blinding Lights", a synth-driven tune that has influenced a wave of 80's nostalgia on pop. However, Trap has continued its reign from the late 2010's. It is also noted for the seeming decline of one of the most dominant acts of the 2010s, pop band Maroon 5, who saw decreasing returns for their 2021 album Jordi.
  • R&B/Soul:
  • Rock: Rock continued to struggle with crossing over until a 2017 cover of "Beggin'" blew up on Tik Tok, causing an unexpected international pop hit for Italian glam-rock band Måneskin. It remains to be seen if this is a blip or the start of a return to prominence for a genre that struggled for much of the 2010's.
