Selecting the Correct Genre for Songs
As you’re selecting a genre tag for song pages, only use Rap, Pop, Rock, Country, or R&B. When a user isn’t sure about the style, it’s a common mistake to select “X” as that should never be used for music. In this case, use your best judgement to decide what the core genre is. For example, Electronic music is normally Pop. You can always add in another tag like Rap once the page is created if the song contains different elements.
