Similarly to 80s chorus, 00s dotted eight delays, what's next..............vibrato? seems like everyone loves pitch vibrato these days.......
I was going to say reverb and delay even though I love 'em. But I think you're right about trap beats (esp, as Rick Beato calls them 'cicada hi-hats'. They are EVERYWHERE in pop music atm.Guitar isn't popular enough anymore for that. It's going to be certain synths and those insufferable triplet trap high hats that get that kind of attention.
