Conclusion

Overall, our analysis reveals that music is indeed incredibly diverse with countless stylistic components of different ranges with usage constantly changing over time. We found it really interesting that an art form like music can be so defined by the metadata associated with it. One surprising thing we found (even though it should be obvious) is that there is a significant amount of overlap between lofi music and hiphop tracks, most probably because lofi beats are actually sampled from these tracks. What’s popular a decade from now may be currently unheard of and our palette of popular stylistic components may be completely different. This is what makes music so universal and enticing to everyone that comes across it; the abundance of variety and creativity never ends.
