When a song in one genre succeeds, the rest of the industry will adapt to copy it. But aggressive mimicking brings too much quantity, poor quality and uninspired copies that will eventually chase away the trend, rendering it absolute by the time most adaptive products hit the market.
In this way, all hits can sow the seeds of their own demise.
Imitating a recent successful thing it’s easy, but seeing the next big thing before anybody else sees it is far more valuable. It’s what Apple did with the iPhone.
My best advice to an artist is to create a unique concept, build an image to his project, make something that flows naturally and you will never have to force anything. People will expect something from you and you can always surprise your audience with new things but always having your signature on it.
