Since the iTunes platform has been out on the market, a lot of people have fallen in love with it since it has made their listening experience more convenient and enjoyable. Most people consider iTunes the best music management system to date. It could have dominated the media center to an even greater extent but for one thing—you could not find any Beatle song in their inventory. Until recently, the Beatles were completely absent from the iTunes lineup; this was due to the clash between the two “apples”: Apple and Apple Corps, which began in the sixties, decades before the iTunes was even manufactured for commercial use. Mid-November of this year, it was announced that The Beatles could be found in the iTunes Store (finally). So let’s dig deeper into the events of the past 50 years to understand how this happened.

Hip hop originated in New York City, the results of the creative endeavors of the Latino, Afro-Caribbean and African American artists living in the South Bronx during the 70’s. This music genre is made up of sampling, rapping, beat boxing and scratching.
Before the 80’s, the hip hop genre was mostly limited in scope to the borders of the United States of America. During the 80’s its popularity started spreading to other countries. Presently, hip hop enjoys a large following in every modern country on the globe.
The influence of hip hop music has transcended genres and can be found in many different types of music; we’ve selected five songs from the Mix and Hitz Station lineups that are standouts in their fields, and whether or not they fall under the heading of hip hop, we play them side-by-side with hip hop tracks on the Hitz and Mix stations:
This song was performed by Katy Perry, featuring the famous hip hop star, Snoop Dogg. In this song, the amazing sounds of the guitar beats used in the 80’s can be heard clearly among the summer-themed lyrics.
This song by the Black Eyed Peas starts with a moderate tempo linked to urban beats, then somewhere in the middle of the song, it turns into a dance track of the fully loaded funk house type. It also boasts a music video that is a mix-up of Imma Be and another song, Rock That Body.
Your Love Is My Drug
This number by Kesha is one of the songs in her debut album entitled ‘January’. Its soundtrack is reminiscent of the 80’s feel with a chorus is all about fascinations of adolescent love, playful in nature. This song features auto-tuned vocals, and is spontaneous, lively and informal.
This song is by B.o.B, featuring Hayley Williams. Most of the melodies of this song are basically from the piano with an outstanding clapping backbeat. The song is one of the many from B.o.B’s debut album called ‘B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray’.
Need You Now (2010 Pop Mix)
A unique song by Lady Antebellum about yearning for late night friendship, this hit is written in the form of a beautifully composed ballad. By November, 2009 it hit No. 1 on the Country Charts and then migrated to pop radio. In recreating the 2010 version, which is a pop mix, the country guitar that was used previously was substituted with an electric guitar. Very delicate, but then it has the magic.
A song by Lady Gaga, she first showcased this amazing song in ‘The Fame Monster’, prior to its January 26th release. A song for the club, even though the use of a harp was integrated into this top song, this piece includes rapping performed by Beyonce Knowles. The song was originally written for Britney Spears, but was performed with great results by Lady Gaga after Spear’s recording label rejected it.
