I just wonder why so many tracks have random syllables for example in Calvin and Rihanna's This Is What You came For: You, Ooh Ooh, Freak Like Me - Oh Oh Oh Baby Oh Oh Oh and in Piece Of Me a low pitched voice doing short syllables I can't make out and in How Deep Is your Love I, Ihi, I. It seems to be some sort of staccato style.

I just find this a bit annoying and I don't know why this is. There wasn't as much of this last decade but it seems most dance songs have it in them this decade for some reason.

Quite. And also it often sounds better when the sylabbles are in time to the beat of the track.

It just sounds more futuristic when the vocals are chopped up like that, I guess. I like it myself, especially in This Is What.. Which is one of my faves of the last few months naturally

Firstly it's easier to rhyme words. And secondary degradation of languages around the world. But english changing faster because of international usage.

It never existed in the past. I think its a UK Garage thing because the only ones I remember were Flowers by Sweet Female Attitude and Baby Cakes by Three of A Kind in the 2000s having it.

I suppose its just a trend of this year like the organ house last year. I hope it goes soon it is kind of annoying to my ears and so many dance tunes have it at the minute.

It seems like every drop has to have a stuttering singer. Maybe its because of this emphasis on the drop in dance songs this decade compared to last decade which means that chopped up vocals are needed more.
