Well, no matter how many people Apple hire, J-Pop and anime songs will always be their black spot, let alone those "limited edition" songs.

People always try to make that parallel, but it’s a superficial one and not really the same.

It's quite literally the same. Both genres have deep roots in pre-existing styles, and both genres sound like unpleasing noise to older people.

PS: I'm old

Beats Radio for example or my suggestions r full of hip hop stuff even tho i never clicked it on one of those genre bubbles

That the majority of stuff on Beats 1 is hip hop is a myth that has long since been debunked.

It’s one of those things that people seem to think is true by virtue of repeating the myth.

I know for a fact that I listen to a few shows on Beats 1 and hardly hear any hip hop.

I quite often forget that Apple Music has Beats 1. Unlike other services they don't really shove it down my throat like other services might do.
