I love it when Popstars go DARK and **** and grown and mature!!! 🔥🔥

Think Ariana Grande with 'Thank U Next' and 'Positions' or Britney with 'In the Zone,' 'Blackout,' and some of 'Circus,' 'Femme Fatale' and most of her 2016 hit album 'Glory.' 💅💅💅

Rihanna slayed Urban Pop with the 'Talk That Talk,' 'Unapologetic,' 'Anti,' 'Good Girl Gone Bad,' and 'Rated R' eras. Even some of 'Loud' was Urban as well, actually. But her first two albums were very Bubblegum and carefree.  💅💅💅

Lady Gaga tried it with 'Jewels and Drugs' and a few other songs which I think was hot 🔥

Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Kesha, Madonna, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Bebe Rexha, Kim Petras, JLo, Christina Aguilera and more have had Urban sounds. 💅💅💅💅

I prefer Urban Pop!!! 💋🔥💖

But I know a lot of the LGBTQIA+ love Bubblegum Pop. 

What about YOU? 🤔

I feel like the term bubblegum pop is usually pop music that is often seen as cheesy and can appeal to a younger audience. I often felt bubblegum pop was influenced by Europop as well.

But I feel like the term may be misused to an extent basically to describe any typical pop song that doesn't really have in-depth lyrics. Britney's first two albums definitely had a bubblegum pop sound in some songs. 

Whereas urban pop is more or less pop music that's been influenced by R&B and possibly other 'urban' genres such as hip hop, soul etc. but it still overall has a more pop leaning sound.

But I think I prefer bubblegum pop over urban pop, but it's a hard question. They're both good genres imo.

Bubblegum might be annoying and cheesy, but I actually find it cute, it makes me fell innocent

And I think it can actually be good for an artist to start off with doing bubblegum and then having a "dark era" cause it shows how much that artist has grown

Depends on what your definition bubblegum pop is. If by bubblegum pop, you mean the Cheiron Studios sound and its offspring of the 90s and early 2000s, then bubblegum pop all the way:

Back when European producers and songwriters had a chokehold on Western mainstream pop music. :crying1_britney_sobbing_tears_2006_sad:
