You would have noticed over the past few years, as hip-hop took over the charts, pop music too got slower with the likes of Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Halsey and more taking the tempo down.
Well, it seems that's turning around as the BBC has found that pop music is actually starting to turn that frown upside down.
According to a study by the BBC, the average tempo of the top 20 highest selling songs of the year so far in the UK is 122 BPM. That's the fastest since 2009. It also cracks the 120 BPM mark for the first time since 2011.
Pop reached its slowest point around the 105 BPM mark in 2017. It has been on a steady increase since then but it's really shot up this year.
Dance-pop has made a resurgence this year thanks to the influence of disco creeping back in. It was all over Dua Lipa's Future Nostaglia, Lady Gaga's Chromatica and even The Weeknd's After Hours.
A fast tempo doesn't mean a happy song but according to the BBC and Spotify, songs are happier this year than the previous two years.
Data measuring a song's valence (ie. its positivity) was collected for the top 20 highest selling singles in the UK, showed pop music is happier than it's been in the past 2 years.
Notably, Drake is happier than ever, releasing the most positive song of his career Toosie Slide. Gaga is also having a particularly happy year.
It may not reflect the general mood of the globe this year but at least pop music is providing an escape right now. 2020, rain on me.
