Former music journalist and observer Wendi Putranto and musician and composer Andi Rianto predict the development of music trends in 2022.

According to Wendi Putranto and Andi Rianto, the music trend in 2022 will not be much different from 2021.

In addition, according to Wendi Putranto and Andi Rianto, the presence of digital music streaming platforms and social media will continue to influence music trends in Indonesia in 2022.

“For music trends, I don’t think it’s much different from 2021. Many people get new music, new songs, new artists, from streaming platforms such as Spotify, Resso, JOOX,” said Wendi Putranto, quoted by SeputarTangsel.Com from Antara on Wednesday, 29 December 2021.

Then Andi Rianto added that the music trend in 2022 will still be dominated by music that is viral through social media, such as TikTok.

According to the famous composer, a song that goes viral on TikTok will have an effect in terms of sales.

“The influence of TikTok is very broad, yes, so it seems that if for example there is a song that suddenly goes viral on TikTok, it will definitely have an effect on sales, streaming, and others,” said Andi Rianto.

Then Wendi said dangdut music will continue its glory in 2022 with increasingly diverse types.

“Javanese pop songs are big in 2021. As the music of our country, he will still be the host, his fans are many. If I see it, this music will be even bigger with more diverse variants,” said Wendi .

“In the past, there was dangdut koplo and so on. You could say that in 2022 (dangdut music) it will still dominate,” continued the former music journalist.

Andi Rianto predicts that there will be many dangdut singers born in 2022.

“If I look at it in 2022, dangdut music will continue to exist. Later there will be several new acts in dangdut, maybe it could be from competition dropouts. But swordsmen who are now big names will still continue to produce new works,” said Andi.

On the other hand, Wendi thinks that rock music still needs a longer time to recover than other genres.

According to Wendi, rock music cannot be seen and enjoyed while sitting like concerts that are happening today.

Then Wendi revealed that it happened in the Rock in Solo event, where the audience was sitting and according to reporters there it felt odd.

“They can only nod, while usually there are headbangs of all kinds,” said Wendi.

Even so, he believes that during the Covid-19 pandemic, many rock musicians are still making works.

Meanwhile, Andi Rianto also believes that rock music will still exist in 2022 because it still has fans, even according to him, new rock musicians will appear in 2022.

“I also think that later there will be something like a resurrection or a revival of groups that have existed for a long time in the rock field,” said Andi.

In addition, according to Wendi Putranto and Andi Rianto, the presence of digital music streaming platforms and social media will continue to influence music trends in Indonesia in 2022.
