Amanda Gorman's books jump to bestsellers after inaugural poem
"The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered in witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and the time were a skinny black girl. Descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one that was amanda gorman the inaugural youth poet lawyer it reading from her poem. At the hill we climb which she read at joe biden's inauguration alexandra alter profiled gorman and interviewed her joining us now to talk a little bit more about that hey alexandra hey pamela so this was a really exciting week in washington but i most loved about the news events. This week was that a poet was the breakout star of the inauguration ceremony on wednesday. Amanda gorman was the youngest inaugural poet and us history. She joins a very elite class of poets. Only been a handful of poets who have performed it including robert frost my ngelo elizabeth richard blanco. So she really brought a lot to this performance. And when i spoke to her what was really interesting to me was. She felt enormous pressure. Not just because of the size of the audience she was going to be addressing. Tens of millions of people potentially watching the events at home but because of the state of the country she felt real responsibility to present a poem that reflected joe biden's inaugural theme of america united and. She said they didn't give her any specific guidelines but they said that's the three million inauguration but she also really wanted to address. What has happened recently in the country. Particularly the partisan divisions that we've seen the political violence the effects of the pandemic. It's a really dark moment. And so she was kind of trying to counter johnston to forces the potential for unity. But also these deep divisions that we're seeing in the country now so interestingly. She was really struggling with the poem. The inaugural committee reached out to her late december. She had a few weeks to work on it and was kind of she said it's like it felt like climbing a mountain would do a few versus a day and then on january six. We all watched across the country as the unfolded at the capital. There was the insurrection. There and rioters stormed the capital. And amanda gorman at that point had written about half of her poem and she stayed up late into the night and finished it because she just felt this urgency. And so you're there are verses in the poem that reflect what we saw that day the other thing that she said that was interesting about how she prepared to write it was. She said she always starts with historical research so she studied speeches from leaders who really brought their countries together. In times of crisis she looked at speeches by winston. Churchill abraham lincoln martin luther king junior and she listened to music that inspired her including the musical hamilton. There are a couple of hamilton references within the poem. That some people caught including lin-manuel miranda who was very appreciative of her poetry. So it's been incredible to see their response to her work after she gave this really kind of inspiring performance her books. She has two books coming out this year. Actually three because they're releasing the poem she wrote as a standalone and she has now the number one and number two books on amazon and this is a poet who is twenty two years old and she's preparing to publish her debut collection. This fall so she's gone incredibly quickly from somebody who had following and was pretty well known in the poetry world to kind of national literary star and one other thing that i loved about her performance and her approach to it which she talked about how she felt like she was representing not just her own words but representing poetry itself representing american poetry and y you know it was important to have poetry part of the ceremony. She said when. I spoke to her now more than ever. The united states needs an inaugural poem. Poetry is typically the touchstone that we go back to when we have to remind ourselves of the history that we stand on the future that we stand for so i thought it was lovely that she felt that she was standing up in front of the capital. Two weeks after the insurrection took place kind of representing poetry as a form that can unite the country.

"At least in my lifetime for the first time standing up for something that didn't affect them directly that is a democracy and so i just love. I'd just love that. We're stepping up realizing no. Okay this is i. I don't have to go to that protest. Not about me but that home from the first they came for this poem. And i think we're finally. We're not doing that. We're not waiting for them to come for us. We are stepping up and realizing that the quality of life the virtue of this country depends on every human being story To a certain degree that our happiness depends on other people's happiness and we're moving from a space of dependence to realizing our interdependence and i just think that's beautiful. What the questions i mean. This book was scary in some ways. Because i'm broaching subjects. That somehow i also felt. I didn't have permission to write about. They you know about mexican immigration. Well no i mean there's there's a common ground their race gender all these kinds of issues and i think that's what i'm trying to do is i'm also trying to embrace everyone else's experiences and perhaps coming up with language together or saying you know me metoo right so i just loved that that's happening and it's hard to see between the two thousand four newsreel and the clips and so it becomes becomes discipline like almost like a spiritual discipline. Take that seriously to you. Its way of us. Some of us enough of us collectively living this phrase at the beginning of the book cattle of a country. Tell me with whom you walk. And i'll tell you who you are so it's us expanding that sense of who we are realizing that we're walking together where we need. We've always had actually acknowledging now. So the book begins with the declaration of interdependence. Is there a story behind us. on the. there's one again finding language finding another angle finding another dialogue and how easily stereotyped and typecast people can become in the news and also how we do it to. Oh you know you drive a red pickup truck therefore you must be this person you shop at whole foods there for you must be this kind of person. You drive a subaru. Therefore you must be this kind of person and realizing that that's really something that's been slowly chipping away at our brains. Serve immediate serve own say judgment but as a typecasting the symptoms. We're not even aware so. I just wanted to break down. Some of those stereotypes and create empathy across those stereotypes. Also ultimately comes from a saying a greeting from the zulu people. That was the real inspiration here. The greeting they don't say a good morning. We do like we did this morning. Learning i need coffee. They look at one another right in the eyes and say see you and there's an incredible power and seeing being knowledge from mistake in the replay. Is i'm here to be seen. And i see you and so we've just we're not seeing each other as clearly. This poem is trying to let us each other clearly. And it's got declaration of again. I think i mentioned the next sort of evolvement in our consciousness is from dependence to inter to independence is really interdependent right. That's really where as a country as a people as a family as as a species. Don't do that in the face of touch climate declaration of interdependence and these are excerpts from the declaration of independence such as been the patient sufferance.

Let's be acknowledged and be okay with where we are right now and that helps a little bit. But i'm trying to think i guess what keeps me hopeful and this is something that i it sort of in between all this despair and fear and apprehension.

Marina Blanco is a research scientist at the Duke Leamer Center in North Carolina, and for years her team surveyed the lowland forests of northeastern Madagascar are capturing and measuring the tiny nocturnal creatures. I took genetic samples to now. All that work has paid off because they see one of the mouse lemurs they sampled, often found clinging to cardamom bushes is a new species. Only about 10 inches long, and half of that is its tail, and it weighs just two ounces. A scientist named it Micros Abyss Janahi or Jonas Mouse lemur.

Within minutes of being cited the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau decided to explore the feasibility of locating the shipwreck buried in the sands and brought in a team of scientists in July of two thousand four.

Nineteen seventy-three the terrorist group L.. Scotty Tosca Toss Oona or ETA claimed credit for the attack. A member of the group said career. Oh Blanco symbolized better than anyone else. The figure of Pure Franko ISM. Nobody managed as he did to maintain the internal equilibrium of the franco-ist state since nineteen thirty. Nine Francisco iskoe Franco ruled as dictator of Spain's single-party totalitarian government that is until June of nineteen seventy-three when sickly eighty-one year old cloudy. Oh handed the reins over to his right hand man sixty nine year old Caro- Blanco Franco was still technically head of state. Even though Carrero had unofficially been running the government for years already but the distinction didn't really matter better Carrero sole objective was to uphold the regime. He'd helped Franco create. When the old man inevitably past career would succeed him and the state would continue on as if nothing had changed? This made Carrero prime enemy for political dissidents from from reform minded liberals to Basque separatists like the ETA ETA translated to homeland and Liberty. The group was founded in nineteen fifty nine with the goal of securing independence for the Basque Country Region in Spain and France. Even even though the Spanish Basque region had been mostly controlled by Spain since the eighteen hundreds the people preserve their own culture language and ethnic the identity during Franco's rule a group of Basque students founded the militant. ETA to fight fight for their regions self governance in nineteen sixty eight. They assassinated the chief of secret police in San Sebastian. In December December of nineteen seventy. They kidnapped the German consul. And in December of nineteen seventy-three. They set their sights on the Prime Minister Luis Carrero the plan was audacious to say the least. ETA members rented a basement apartment in Madrid. Along the route Carrero took daily mass. They told the landlord. They were sculptors to explain the massive racket they made while digging a tunnel all through the ground under the street the one hundred eighty pounds of stolen explosives. They packed into the tunnel may have been overkill but if they wanted to truly destabilize the Franko estate they had to incite absolute chaos. The idea was that after the showstopper explosion the Franco regime would crack down on opposition and become even harsher and more repressive than they'd been before before then in turn the everyday Basque people would see how evil the Spanish government really was and join in the fight for independence Candi- only then would they have the strength to rise up and overthrow the franco-ist state Strangely ETA got what they wanted but not in the way they'd planned instead of cracking down. Franco just rolled over and gave up. After Kara's death. The eighty one year old dictator was quoted as saying they have cut the last thread. That tied me too this world with Guerrero out of the picture. There was no clear successor to maintain Franco's policies for decades. Spain had stood in place while the world around them progressed and democratized by the Seventies. Everyone could see that. The state was on the brink brink of collapse without some kind of reform. There was no future when Franco died on November twentieth. Nineteen seventy seventy five Prince Juan Carlos soon to become King Juan Carlos the first stepped in to fill the power vacuum. He immediately the at least set to work reforming authoritarian government and transitioning Spain into a democracy on June fifteenth nineteen seventy seven. Spain held its first free and democratic election in forty one years the next year the newly elected legislature drafted a new constitution. The Franco days were officially behind them. As for not a they didn't get along with the new democratic government any more than they did with Franco although the Basque country was granted status as an autonomous autonomous community with the nineteen seventy eight constitution. Many Basque nationalist still felt they shouldn't be held to Spain's Constitution at at all in the four decades after Herreros assassination. ETA killed over eight hundred people in two thousand ten. They finally declared a ceasefire promising to use democratic methods to achieve their political goals and in the years since the organization organization has fully disbanded despite the decades of havoc. They reeked on Spain. ETA will always be remembered remembered for their one accidental achievement with one hundred eighty pounds of explosives. They ushered in a peaceful transition transition to democracy..

I do want to note that although most Americans I came to to know about you as the poet of the presidential inauguration you were a civil engineer before you began to write. And we're you still the full time. Civil engineer delivered the inaugural. Yes yes practice. This has essentially been your career which I find fascinating and I. I think it might sound like a surprising juxtaposition but the more I thought about it it makes a lot of sense because he was about design and structure and patterns right. And you got that you hit that right on the nose. I mean as careers. Obviously different career paths if. You're not in a cubicle all day but I learned a lot about writing poetry from my math classes in terms of structured lodging patterns as musicians say music is very mathematical right so so that lent itself South to writing and vice versa. Being a civil engineer I had to engage with a lot of public a lot of communities towns and and being a being a writer being a poet which is in some ways the study partly a study of human nature really built my skills in terms of trying to understand people there should know oh nuances of what. They're saying what they're not saying and tease out of them. Their emotional relationship to place and home and projects. What's that were civil projects for everyone? Joe which ironically is what my poges about trying to find a psychological home but also this in my in my engineering I was in a way creating brick and mortar home right a sense of home by with brick and mortar. And it's really interesting because I think it speaks also got hit it right on the nose. It's not that different but I think it speaks to our general attitude well instill how we Silo Education And oh you're an engineer. It's getting worse and worse. That's right these days. You're an engineer. You don't need to learn how to write. My job was fifty percent writing and I didn't start writing until I sent it to my consulting the office and had to write and that actually led to my love of language way too and I started exploring language and then I got deeper and deeper into it and became the go-to person and the senior partner. Because of my writing right your job. An engineering proposal that gets in a forty million dollar job is nothing but a narrative right an argument persuasion of how our firm is the best firm. How this our vision for the project but it is funny sometimes because sometimes interview it was? The Romantic story is that I was forced to study engineering because as a working class family right I discovered poetry beyond the clouds. Parted came.

I didn't have the confidence in myself so I just I just wanted to figure out how to be a part of it I started engineer straight out of college I started engineering so like the sound engineering so if you're listening right now what that is you had a computer and and you're basically adjusting the levels of everything to break it down like a five years old so your your engineering music and where

"The idea was so oh simple. It's hard to believe no one thought of it before her one motorcycle one driver one gunman sneak up to the target get fire off a few shots and speed away before anyone realizes what happened the bikes easily zig-zagged through city traffic doc and dodged police cars and the sudden public killings were sure to strike fear into the hearts of Zelda's rivals maximum efficiency ency and maximum spectacle but that was all behind her now after nearly twenty years in federal prison in the US she came back to her hometown of the Yien handed the reins of her empire to her son Michael Corleones Blanco and devoted her twilight light-years to peace rest and family. She was sixty nine now. She no longer had the stomach for blood unless it was the kind dripping from a rare juicy steak as Griselda scanned the case in Cardi so the morning of September third. She got a bit carried away day picking out cuts of meat. She wanted to make sure her dinner guests didn't go home hungry but she probably didn't need to buy one hundred fifty dollars worth of meat after a lifetime as a Queen Pin. She developed a taste for excess that was hard to shake while the butcher bagged order. She reached into her purse to counter bills. She was too distracted to notice the motorcycle that rolled to a stop right it outside two men in dark helmets one driver who kept the bike idling by the curb one one gunman who calmly walked inside clutching a handgun. GRISELDA didn't even turn around when she heard the door open with no fanfare. The man shot her twice once in the shoulder and once in the head and just like that that it was over he calmly turned around God back on the motorcycle and disappeared Gra Zelda's daughter-in-law rushed inside the shop to find the former queen pen lying on the floor in a pool of blood as Zelda gasped her last breaths. The a young woman placed a Bible on her chest. There was no time to say a prayer. The life was already flickering from her is by the time time police arrived Gra Zelda Blanco was dead gunned down in the same way. She'd killed dozens of others coming up. We detail the life of the cocaine godmother now back to the story in the mid nineteen seventies Griselda Blanco became one of the first Colombians to make a name for herself in the cocaine trade along along with her husband Alberto Bravo she built an international drug empire with headquarters in mid a Yien and New York City eventually actually Griselda killed Alberto took over the business for herself and struck up a partnership with an enterprising young criminal named Pablo Escobar in the late Seventies. Gra Zelda moved to Miami where she became a distributor for Escobar's operation the Medellin cartel in an era of flamboyantly violent drug traffickers. She was easily one of the most flamboyantly violent she kept a hold over the city by ordering the murder of anyone who stood in her way including a first cousin of the Medellin cartel's cartels co-founders the Choi Brothers at least one young child and all three of her own husband's by nine nineteen eighty-four Gra Zelda's multiple enemies drove her out of Miami the forty one year old drug boss was arrested later that year but she kept running her business from behind bars. After serving nearly twenty years in prison Gra Zelda was released in two thousand four four and deported back to Colombia by that point Columbia's first cocaine queen pin had outlived nearly all of her successors assessors. Two of her sons had been murdered. Pablo Escobar was long dead and most of his partners were either also deceased or or spending the rest of their lives behind bars but Gra Zelda had survived for her last eight years of life life. She lived quietly staying out of the spotlight and out of the drug game but it was only a matter of time until old debts caught up up with her. The motivation behind her murderer is still a mystery. It could have been any of the numerous enemies she made during her time as a drug trafficker car. It also could have been arrival of her son. Michael corleones Blanco who had taken up the family business after her retirement. Whatever ever the case Gra Zelda's murder led the thirty four year old Michael to reconsider his priorities soon after her death he left the drug game for good as of two thousand nineteen he runs a clothing company called pure Blanco and stars in the VH ONE DOCU series. He's cartel crew which profiles the children of notorious drug traffickers by the time of Gra Zelda's death in two thousand twelve. She was no longer in active figure in the drug world but her influence outlived her for better or worse during her time in in Miami in the early eighties the city was an open battleground between cocaine traffickers and police the war racked up thousands of casualties altis before it was done for a time there were so many homicides in Miami that the police department had to rent out cold storage trucks from local fast food restaurants to house the bodies the violence in Miami finally settled down in the late eighties partly because of Brazil the broncos incarceration and partly because Colombian traffickers had found new routes for moving their cocaine into the US namely across cross the Mexican border but even today Miami still has an above average murder rate and is frequently ranked as one of the most dangerous the cities to live in the US on the other hand Griselda Blanco's personal reputation has soared due to the fact act that she's one of very few female drug cartel leaders. She's been immortalized in several films and two documentaries the aptly eh titled Cocaine Cowboys and Cocaine Cowboys to hustling with the godmother morality aside the story of the woman who killed her her way to the top of the male dominated drug world continues to captivate the public in the end. Griselda Blanco got exactly what she wanted money fame and a blood-soaked reputation..

advocacy group based now passed away welcome you both to democracy now first of all condolences on the Harvard that is taking place in your community and I'll pass so we want to begin with SSR Blanco on if you could talk about what your tell us about your community in el Paso and then tell us what you're demanding right now well thank you Amy are a boss who is a warm welcome mean bi national community located on the US Mexico border our sister city to the south of us in Mexico twice we are a community that is very tight knit we are a community that opens its arms to immigrants and welcomes immigrants this community is a community of immigrants my father was an immigrant from the state if you are one in Mexico and this is tragic and it's it's horrible that were seen these type of acts of violence and murder tied to white supremacy occurring here in our in our communities Hey we need to see action we need the words of the president have been harmful and a it's a it's unfortunate that this president has not condemned this white national of violent acts here in our communities and other communities across the country and work it's horrible that the United States Senate has not taken any action in terms of gun reform to not allow these type of weapons to reach the hands of these individuals who wants to create havoc and fear in our communities cry for us what you understand took place on Saturday morning at that Walmart well early about ten to ten thirty there were calls nine one one calls to police a good man began firing in the parking lot of Walmart a here in el Paso and he entered the though the store began shooting and firing at individuals this community is majority Latino he drove a in six hundred miles to perform these acts of violence against our community we have seen in his manifesto the level of hate toward our community in toward immigrants in this country and clearly looks like it was an intentional act throughout the day families of had been waiting to hear news so they set up a family reunification center in the elementary school that I attended as a kid to allow families to wait here is the good news the bad news unfortunately for many the bad news is that their family members were killed by this individual Fernando Garcia at founding director of the border network for human rights on can you talk about the report said some survivors were afraid to get help maybe they were injured but afraid because of their status right now their immigration status yes Amy are present wild let the last actually two days we had received several calls from families that where a freight of actually going into the hospitals and clinics because they they soulful mainly border patrol personnel and vehicles in they were actually not report the in the in your face and they were actually going to the hospitals and clinics on their own so they call us and what we need is we will eventually we called our congresswoman esquire because we wanted the border patrol in nice actually eastern a statement that they would not enforce immigration laws these days in el Paso and I think people as they are for it's still a friend of that because he didn't before this the shooting happened people were afraid already off immigration enforcement so I think a little a little people is getting away with more comfortable obviously but is gonna take a little bit more than that in the spring we are you still receiving calls of people being afraid of reporting their injuries stool that hospitals and that though it is because so far the few that we have with the immigration do you believe that Latinos were targeted I mean clearly in this so called manifesto I mean right before the gunmen opened fire at the Walmart in el Paso he then posted this anti immigrant screed apparently attributed to him appeared online the manifesto is titled the inconvenient truth about me it reads in part quote I support the Christ Church shooter and his manifesto this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas they are the instigators not may I am simply defending my country from cultural ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion Hispanics will take control of the local and state government of my beloved Texas changing policy to better suit their needs they will turn Texas into an instrument of a political cool which will hasten the destruction of our country the manifesto read it also cites the great replacement theory the white nationalist right wing conspiracy theory which was also invoked during the white supremacist rally in

How Streaming Changed the Sound of Pop
"Exiling that has overtaken pop music in the last six months, which which one I feel like we're poppas of anxiety. So according to many the economics of streaming is changing music. So significantly right now that pop me literally never sound the same again. And today I want to investigate these claims by seeing how musicians are altering their sounds to make it in today's streaming economy and to do this. I've recruited Aishah Hassan, and Dan, cough who have written about how streaming is affecting the sound of pop for courts in a piece called the reason, why your favorite pop songs are getting shorter Asia. Dan the show. Yeah. Thanks nice to be here. This is exciting. Yes. Okay. So in the recent guardian interview mega pop producer. Mark Ronson said that all your songs have to be under three minutes and fifteen seconds because of people don't listen to them all the way to the end. End. They get into this ratio of non complete heard which sends your Spotify writing down and song writers are forced to churn out hits at short order. So I can you untangle Ranson's gripe and explain what is causing so much concern that many music streaming services work as that songs generate money per play. That means every time that there's streamed they generate a certain amount of money, and that's very little so it ranges between zero point zero zero four dollars to zero point zero zero eight dollars. And then if you don't play it to the very end that rating goes down, meaning that people don't listen to the song through as much then the song is less likely to make it into Spotify really lucrative playlists which them streamed more, and because the amount of money so little volume is really important. So this is obviously extremely different from how artists were paid in the past. Right. I think it's important to note that artists right now. According to a report. In two thousand seventeen they're only getting about ten percent of the music industry's total revenue, but streaming so important because that's how they're going to break out. Right. And they're not going to be heard by audiences then less people are going to buy their tickets for their concert. People are going to buy their merch so to be visible. It's really important to sometimes game the streaming system. So more people listen to their stuff. Okay. Gaming, this drinks. There's some sort of sort of perverse incentives going on here and just sort of get sort of order magnitude around this a CD used to cost fifteen to twenty dollars. And how many songs do you have to stream in order to make the equivalent on an old record so thousand streams quivalent of six dollars. So we're talking about fifteen hundred streams to get nine dollars. An and of course in artists probably is only making a fraction of those nine dollars. That's exactly right. The music services tend to take thirty percent of that revenues Spotify or alpha musical, whatever we'll take around thirty percent. And then even though you've got the rest of the money going to artists depending on the deal that they have a record labels and the amount of people who have contributed to the track that money, which is very little at the beginning is split up. Even more so artists are actually getting a very very small amount of money. Okay. So this is interesting. We have two different issues at hand. Now that we have to deal with one as you mentioned this question of our songs getting shorter and sort of why? And then also are there. Certain like time markers are boundaries that you have to fit within is that changing the way that perhaps people are writing music, and so let's take them in that order. So our songs are songs any shorter. Yes. Definitely. Around two thousand the median length of a billboard one hundred songs was well over four minutes about four minutes and seven seconds. And in two thousand eighteen it was just over three and a half minutes. So we've lopped off more than thirty seconds off the average billboard hot one hundred songs. So that's that. So Mark Ronson anxiety that that Charlie quote at the beginning of this episode is is perhaps warranted songs are getting shorter. Yes. And there's also these extreme example. So there are a bunch of songs now that are under two and a half minutes long. So in the two thousands there were virtually no songs under two and a half minutes that made the charts and in two thousand eighteen about six percent of them were less than two and a half minutes, and some even just two minutes, you documented this in your piece, and there's like a hockey stick graph basically starting in. I don't know like twenty fifteen twenty fifteen all the sudden there's all these songs that are now two and a half minutes or shorter you pointed to Connie west and little pumps. I love which comes in at just over two minutes. How correct. So the question of where's the music going curious in in your investigations how much? This is intertwined with the dominance of hip hop as the main form of today's popular music. So it's a coupla hated thing to answer because hip hop has seeped into all genre. So even when you listen to country as you've pointed out in previous shows country now has a hip hop effect. But if you look at every genre. They've all phone Rb rock country. All of them have taken a big dive over the last two decades wrap the most. So it's definitely the biggest phenomenon there. But it's not just a hip hop thing. So on the one hand, we have some different incentive structures set up and just to be clear about them. Minor sending we have songs are getting shorter. Because the way that you get paid with streaming is personal and it used to be since the I don't know the age of album oriented music that the Elbe was the main way that you made a major money. So now, if you're getting paid per song, it makes sense to have like twenty really short songs that might actually run shorter than an album length. That would be ten songs that are twice three times as long, and so you're you're gaming can I get as many songs in. It's possible. Is that is that an accurate description of how some people understanding this? I just want to complicate things a little bit. So yes, we are pretty confident that streaming matters. But this is actually a pretty long term trend. So if we look over the twentieth century, you'll see that songs were quite short in the forties and fifties. And then they got way longer through the latter half of the twentieth century and then starting around the late nineteen ninety s all the way up today, we see songs shortening. So it's definitely got to be more than just dreaming. But we're confident that sort of the effect that we're seeing over the last several years is a result of the desire to make more money from having shorter songs. And if somebody listens to an album repetitively, the artists will get more money, but there's definitely more going on there than just streaming. Okay. So Spotify actually put out a press release about this phenomenon and said that in the world of digital consumption are narrow windows of free time are the object of fierce competition by the seemingly limitless choices streaming platforms present short songs represent solution to an. Audiences abundance of choice alongside endless opportunities for diversion. So there's sort of a question of like our audience is also driving this perhaps. That's that's what they're suggesting. I think what we need to do though is examined the music and see is this really going on. And I'm particular interesting looking at like if psalms are getting shorter what's being put on the chopping block. And so we really established it hip hop is. Most dominant form of pop music right now, go on the billboard sixty seventy percent of the charts are going to be hip hop. And if you also look at the songs, which tend to be shorter, especially these sort of two minute, two and a half minute songs. Lotte hip hop lungs in there as well. And I think there's a there's a part of this which makes sense because in have you don't necessarily have as rigid structure of pop song. You don't necessarily have to have for example, a pre course or post chorus or bridge you can just have hook verse hook verse and you're out. And so when you look song like s and low pumps piece, they're doing exactly that. As you steal. I try. Sparkler one came out. Such a. Sick. Like the quick I'm a sick. Like, let's you to verse piece instead of you know, you go back to nineties hip hop. You might have had three four five versus a song. So it's easy to just you can chop it down make more songs that makes sense to me. I think we're things get more complicated. Are when songs are using sort of more traditional verse chorus song form. So if we look at song like he side that's on comes in two minutes and fifty four seconds, which is pretty short pops on and I wanted to look at where's the extra music going? So let's listen to Benny Blanco's east side. And we're gonna listen to just what happens at the end goal. They side.
