    It's been quite some time since seeing a billboard top 100 list. Other than a few arists, I'm not familiar with any of the songs listed. Are there any bass players that stand out amongst the most current top 100 songs that anyone would suggest checking out? Are there any songs worth listening to? I know I can go through them all, but I value my time and thought somebody here at TB might have already narrowed it down. I'm not really into pop music, but thought there may be something good out there that I'm missing. Other than pop music, I'm always up for hearing new or old stuff that others find inspiring. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Jamerio Artis with Bruno Mars is a fantastic player.

    I like Mars a lot. He's one of the few modern pop artists I like. He's a throwback and I'm an old fart, so ymmv. I don't know if it is Artis on all the stuff I like, but the bass component of Mars' stuff is generally excellent, imo.
