Coursera R-Programming: Week 2 Problems

Over the past several weeks I have been helping students, career professionals, and people of other backgrounds learn R. During this time one this has become apparent, people are teaching the old paradigm of R and avoiding the tidyverse all together. I recently had a student reach out to me in need of help with the first programming assignment from the Coursera R-Programming course (part of the Johns Hopkins Data Science Specialization).

geniusR

A new R package for acquiring song lyrics in a tidy text format 🤘.

Introducing geniusR

Introducing geniusR geniusR enables quick and easy download of song lyrics. The intent behind the package is to be able to perform text based analyses on songs in a tidy[text] format. This package was inspired by the release of Kendrick Lamar’s most recent album, DAMN.. As most programmers do, I spent way too long to simplify a task, that being accessing song lyrics. Genius (formerly Rap Genius) is the most widly accessible platform for lyrics.
