Pop music is one of the most popular music genres. Its modern origin is traced back to the United Kingdom and the United States in the 1950s. Both pop music and popular music mean the same thing even though popular music also refers to all genres of music that are well-known.
This particular type of music is usually eclectic and also adapts styles from other genres such as rock, dance, urban and country. There are foundation elements that help in the definition of pop music. Some of these basic elements include medium-length to short songs that have been written using the verse-chorus format.
