Trap music is a musical genre rooted in the early 1990s to the South of the USA (South Hip-Hop / Crank). An aggressive text component and sound are typical for it, in which the driving force of the instrumental is the 808th drum machine, or densely extended sub-bass parts, accelerated by two, three or more times hi-hat, multi-layer synthesizers and “cinematic” stringed instruments. Due to the tangible presence on the mainstream music charts, trap music was also used by non-hip-hop artists. The songs of the arnb bi-singer Beyonce "Drunk in Love", "Flawless" and "7/11" - all from her 2013 album Beyonce- also contain a reflection of trap. Lady Gaga, an American dance and pop singer, recorded the Jewels ’n Drugs song from her 2013 album, Artpop, featuring rappers T.I., Too Short and Twista. The combination of pop and trap music was met with mixed reviews from critics. In September 2013, American pop singer Katy Perry released a song called “Dark Horse” with rapper Juicy J, from her 2013 album Prism, which included the trap “smack”. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 by the end of January 2014.
In May 2015, trap music once again surfaced to the top of the mainstream music charts when the hit single “Trap Queen” of New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap climbed to number two on the Billboard Hot 100 American chart. Followed singles Wap “My Way” and 679 also reached the top 20 of the American Billboard Hot 100, making it the first male rap artist to have three songs in the TOP-20 for the first time since Eminem in 2013.
In 2013, a fan-made video for Baauer’s EDM producer “Harlem Shake” became an Internet meme, promoting the track to be the first track song to go up to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Five popular EDM track producers performed at the 2013 Ultra Music Festival in the USA - Carnage, ƱZ, DJ Craze, Baauer and Flosstradamus. 2013 Tomorrowland Festival Includes Trap Scene
