Recently, electropop has literally popped up everywhere. Though the genre was established in the 1980s, electropop started becoming popular in the 2000s. Defined as a form of electronic music that incorporates synthesizers into its sound, electropop bands were initially labeled as being cold and robotic by critics, but ultimately electropop artists had the last laugh, as with synth pop, the songs eventually became wildly popular. It's influence can be heard anywhere on modern pop radio, and can't be confused with electronic dance music, though may feel inclined to do so.
