Some of these genres include Alternative R&B, Indie music, and electronic hits. Music in this decade was known for becoming remixes, covers or mashups of old, or formerly released songs.

It was now possible for musicians to post their own original work in order to get noticed by music labels, and it was also used as a forum for music enthusiasts to listen to whatever they want. A lucky bonus was that music videos were also a treat instead of just listening to a CD or music on the radio. Teen pop music was growing more popular on radio sites during the 2000s too, including some popular bands/artists such as NSYNC, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Destiny’s Child.
