slutwave is a not-so-commonly used term referring to the 00's phenomenon: the domination of female electro-pop solo artists.
the whole thing pisses off people who claim to have a clue about music, since these slutty-dressed (but in real life cold ass business women) artists are able to sell their shitty tracks by drawing attention to their bodies and creating buzz by their trashy (they'd say edgy) costumes.
main 'slutwave' artists: lady gaga, ke$ha
the term was probably invented and/or brought into use by Carles, blogger of Hipster Runoff.
hey look at M.I.A. she'd probably eat shit to earn some cash. recently she's been riding slutwaves just to stay relevant.
