Dance-pop is a pop and dance subgenre that originated in the early 1980s. It is uptempo music intended for nightclubs with the intention of being danceable but suitable for contemporary hit radio. Developing from a combination of electronic dance music and pop music, with influences of disco, post-disco and synth-pop, it is characterised by strong beats with easy, uncomplicated song structures which are more similar to pop music than the more free-form dance genre, with an emphasis on melody as well as catchy tunes; the genre, on the whole, tends to be producer-driven, despite some notable exceptions. Dance-pop borrowed influences from other genres, which varied by producer and period; such include contemporary R&B, trance, new jack swing, synthpop and some forms of Europop. Dance-pop is a popular mainstream style of music and there have been numerous pop artists and groups who perform in the genre. Notable ones include Cher, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Gloria Estefan, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Spice Girls, Paula Abdul, Backstreet Boys, Michael Jackson, NSYNC, Destiny's Child, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez As the term "disco" started to go out of fashion by the late 1970s to early 1980s, other terms were used to describe disco-based music, such as "post-disco", "club", "dance" or "dance-pop" music.
These genres were, in essence, a more modern variant of disco music known as post-disco, which tended to be more experimental and producer/DJ-driven using sequencers and synthesizers. Dance-pop music emerged in the 1980s as a combination of dance and pop, or post-disco, uptempo and simple, club-natured, producer-driven and catchy. Dance-pop was more uptempo and dancey than regular pop, yet more structured and less free-form than dance music combining pop's easy structure and catchy tunes with dance's strong beat and uptempo nature. Dance-pop music was created and produced by record producers who would hire singers to perform the songs. In the beginning of the 1980s, disco was an anathema to the mainstream pop. According to prominent Allmusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Madonna had a huge role in popularizing dance music as mainstream music, utilizing her charisma and sex appeal. Erlewine claimed that Madonna "launched dance-pop" and set the standard for the genre for the next two decades.
As the primary songwriter on her self-titled debut album and a co-producer by her third record, Madonna's insistence on being involved in all creative aspects of her work was unusual for a female dance-pop vocalist at the time. The staff of Vice magazine stated that her debut album "drew the blueprint for future dance-pop."In the 1980s, dance-pop was aligned to other uptempo electronic genres, such as Hi-NRG. Prominent producers in the 1980s included Stock and Waterman, who created Hi-NRG/dance-pop for artists such as Kylie Minogue, Dead or Alive and Bananarama. During the decade, dance-pop borrowed influences from funk, new jack swing, contemporary R&B. Other prominent dance-pop artists and groups of the 1980s included the Pet Shop Boys and Kim, Samantha Fox, Debbie Gibson, Tiffany. By the 1990s, dance-pop had become a major genre in popular music. Several dance-pop groups and artists emerged during the 1990s, such as the Spice Girls, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Backstreet Boys, and'NSYNC.
During the early 1990s, dance-pop borrowed influences from house music, as well as contemporary R&B and new jack swing. By the late 1990s, electronic influences became evident in dance-pop music. Additionally in 1998, Cher released a dance-pop song called "Believe" which made usage of a technological innovation of the time, Auto-Tune. An audio processor and a form of pitch modification software, Auto-Tune is used as a way to correct pitch and to create special effects. Since the late 1990s, the use of Auto-Tune processing has become a common feature of dance-pop music. Celine Dion released a midtempo dance-pop song, "That's the Way It Is" by the end of 1999. During this period, some British bands connected with Britpop and alternative pop experimented with dance pop as a form - examples include Catatonia single Karaoke Queen, Kenickie's final single Stay in the Sun and Romo band Orlando's major label debut single "Just For A Second." Another Britpop band, Theaudience was fronted by Sophie Ellis Bextor who went on to a successful solo career in artist-driven dance-pop.
At the beginning of the 2000s, dance-pop music was still prominent, electronic in style, influenced by genres such as trance, house and electro. Nonetheless, as R&B and hip hop became popular from the early part of the decade onwards, dance-pop borrowed a lot of its influences from urban music. Dance-pop stars from the 1980s and 1990s such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson and Kylie Minogue continued to achieve success at the beginning of the decade. Whilst a lot of dance-pop at the time was R&B-influenced, many records started to return to their disco roots.
