Real Disco But for more modern disco - PCD  

Everyone is saying Future Nostalgia started the disco trend. However, Fifth Harmony's "Sledgehammer" also sounds heavily disco-influenced.    Also see Aly & AJ's "Take Me"

The TASTE. Ugh. Real disco is so good. I love last dance and especially MacArthur park by donna summer. And a bunch of other stuff I can’t think of right now. 💛

Okay so i did a little research and i just found out Sledgehammer and Take me are NOT disco songs. They are 80s-influenced synth-pop songs with a electronic and EDM influence. The only thing "disco" about it, are the kicks and snares, which were itself inspired synth-pop and 80s-music. Thus, they aren't disco. It already didnt feel like one, because since i myself am working on a disco album, there are hardly any elements that ring my bell thinking its disco.

So, Dua Pepe still stands as the Queen of The Disco Revival :queenflopga:

I agree about Take Me but I would say 80’s sound. It also is a super underrated track that deserved more :lessons: and no 5H song is forgettable and just trash pop 

Take me is stll not disco tho

To start a trend you need to make some impact on other important artirsts.

  • Future Nostalgia had the same producers of Confessions on the Dance Floor from Madonna.
  • Rain on me has samples from a disco song called "All this love that Im Giving".
  • Kylie has done DISCO before, so this not new to her.

So there you have 5H inspired none of them, but you can still keep the fantasy, that makes no harm. 
I keep my fantasy that Make Me had a decent video and it was a huge global hit, and im happy

Even if other artists made disco-sounding music before her, Dua is the one who made it trendy/mainstream. :mattafact:
