Sufferings, romances and dancing or melodic sounds are an indisputably unavoidable and accurate fusion. In brief words, this formula was first introduced in the 1950s in the United States and United Kingdom, the so-called pop music. Due to the excellent receptivity, the pattern has been repeated multiple times since then, acquiring new shapes, structures and configurations.
Talking about the style in Brazil is even more fascinating and significant, since, on national soil, the genre gains impressive developments from the Brazilianness brought to the songs. The songs externalize an original identity with representative and visceral combinations.
In 2021, the genre reached its peak with memorable experiments due to new melodic proposals, reinvented artistic identities and radiant sound combinations in iconic records. What Brazilian pop lived this year cannot and should not be forgotten anytime soon. If the albums below are not the only ones responsible for this splendid moment in the scene, they are proof that 2021 was great for the style.

With the new project, Jão manages to renew himself within his own discography, presenting a more optimistic perspective in relation to love – a speech that sounds like ‘it’s okay not to be so well.’ This new moment is also marked by an even more danceable sound, with strong references to electronic music.
Marina Sena – At first

Pabllo Vittar – Tropical Beat
Also acclaimed by foreign critics, Tropical Beat is the fourth studio album by the equally prestigious Pabllo Vittar.

The album consists of three new tracks and six re-records of hits from the hits of the bands Companhia do Calypso, Ravelly, Brega.com and Batidade. In the versions of the songs, Vittar brings its own (and unmistakable) identity and overflows with contemporaneity – resulting in a unique and daring work.
