Look, I think it's unfair to generalize people as shitty singers. Like with every artiste, they have good songs and they have terrible songs. What? All of Michael Jackson's songs were good? FUCK NO! The people you listed such as Riahanna, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, blah, blah, blah all have good songs and then they have down right shit. For crying out loud, I can count the amount of songs that I like from J-LO on one finger but shit they're 3 good songs. Sure she's had 40 something bad ones, but there's of 3 of them that I listen to.
Pop music would always be pop music. If you're looking for some sort of message in pop music, you have to look far. But for the most part it's nothing but a 4 line verse followed by some chorus, followed by another 4 line verse, then the chorus then we play the instrumental for a while then we end with the chorus. And that's been the money-making formula for decades now.
As for rap music....yeah now that's really looking far and few.
