Seriously? I've noticed far more electro house inspired tracks on the radio lately than normal pop songs, and even normal pop music is taking a more straight 4/4 influence.
Also brostep is extremely popular, mainstream wise...
I just listened to (well skimmed through) the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and at least half of the top 10 could easily be considered inspired by EDM... Shitty EDM none the less, but EDM. 4/4 beats, off beat bass, breakdowns, trancey synth melodies, effects, pads, etc.
There was no rapping, most of them are artists who have always made this sort of style of music, etc.
Oh, there's certainly influence. But most of the stuff that actually makes it up there is from pop stars adopting EDM elements, rather than EDM people breaking into pop.
