    House music, after enjoying significant underground and club-based success from the early 1980s onwards, emerged into the UK mainstream pop market in the mid to late 80s. Popularity quickly followed in Europe, from the late 80s to early 90s, and it became a global phenomenon from the mid 90s on wards.

    It proved to be a commercially successful genre and a more mainstream pop based variation grew increasingly popular. Artists and groups such as Madonna, Janet Jackson, Bjork and C+C Music Factory incorporated the genre in their work. After enjoying significant success in the early to mid-90s, house music's popularity started to decline by the latter part of the decade;nevertheless, the genre still remained popular and fused into other subgenres which were popular.

    In Europe, the genre remained highly popular into the 2000s, with groups and artists such as Daft Punk and Justice performing in the genre, and obtaining commercial success and critical acclaim. In the 2000s, a house subgenre known as electro house achieved popularity. Today, house music remains popular in both clubs and in the mainstream pop scene.
