Cloud rap (also known as trillwave) is a experimental subgenre of hip hop music[1][2] whose distinguishing features include ethereal, dreamlike beats (which often use wordless vocal samples, wherein singers harmonize or hold long notes, to produce a majestic effect) and abstracted, sometimes deliberately absurd, lyrics.
