While teen pop is generally marketed to teens, the music has the typical elements of pop music - catchy hooks, upbeat lyrics, and simple melodies - that make it appealing to a wide audience. Lyrically, teen pop focuses on issues that resonate with teenage life - love, relationships, friendship, and the triumphs and trials of growing up are common themes addressed by teen singer.
