Just Chill

This article was written by in Consumer. 2 comments.

Chill, or chillout, is a “new” music genre gaining popularity. Will it save the world or will it just sell more products? CD101.9‘s contest features a Mercedes CLS, obvisouly the most chilled-out of sedans.

In reality, chill is just repackaged adult contemporary, which changes its name every once in a while to attempt to appeal to new consumers. There might be very slight and insignificant differences, but the intent is still the same.

At least, on the positive side, “chill” does NOT include Kenny G. :)
