In the past few years I have noticed a drastic increase in music sampling between different genres of music. Sampling is simply one artist taking any part of a recording (can even just be instrumental) and applying it to his or her own track. This popular form of music collaboration has allowed one sound to invent and reinvent itself multiple times and trend through many different genres. Some songs are very obvious in their usage of sampling while others are a little trickier to decipher. Here are a few fantastic examples of popular songs that have been sampled into new genres of music.
