Popcast (Deluxe): Will There Ever Be Another Global Pop Icon?

[ad_1]

This week’s episode of Popcast (Deluxe), the weekly culture roundup show on YouTube hosted by Jon Caramanica and Joe Coscarelli, includes discussion of:

  • The current Hot 100, which features newcomers like Tommy Richman, Shaboozey, Sabrina Carpenter, Chappell Roan and others

  • Who has emerged, besides Taylor Swift, as a true cross-platform pop superstar in the last decade — Bad Bunny? Drake?

  • How centrist pop has become an aggregation of several styles rather than one coherent sound

  • How pop superstars of the ’80s and ’90s aggregated superfans and casual fans

  • Whether there is a path for a new star to get famous enough to play something like the Super Bowl halftime show a decade from now
