The genre of pop music basically has its roots well laid in the American soil. But this does not mean that the pop culture is limited to Americans alone. The music type has travelled far and wide - every country, today, having its own long list of pop stars and pop music. British invasion of pop music kicked off in 1964 when Sir Paul McCartney and his group, The Beatles firmly made ground for themselves and Brit pop in the global music map. Winner of ten Grammy, one Academy, fifteen Ivor Novello awards, The Beatles became the best-selling band in history with an estimated sale of more than 600 million records worldwide. Interestingly, the legacy of Brit pop culture only zoomed upwards in the coming decades with new-age pop sensation not just claiming top spots in the world pop charts but being lauded for their exuberant musical talent and capabilities. British pop songs are characterized by phenomenal voice, great music and heartfelt lyrics. Singers such as Ed Sheeran, Tom Jones, Amy Winehouse, Charlie XCX, Sam Smith, Hozier, Florene Welsh, Jessie J, Adele, Leone Lewis have defied the usual pin-up standard of pop music and gave it a new identity with their experimental touch.
