This is a red herring. The billboard represents only a very tiny percentage of musicians/performers -- the ones that record companies have chosen to promote to the top. That list does not represent the highest standard for modern music, but rather, the most profitable properties for the record companies.Just concentrate on the billboard. That billboard shows what the most popular songs are right now. We can also take a chart from other months or weeks, if you wish.
You can still find thousands of highly skilled musicians and vocalists performing all over, in festivals, in clubs, and producing their own work for sale.
