Dance-pop is a style of dance music that grew out of disco in the mid-1980s. Complete with pounding, dance-club beats, the songs of this music are more fully-formed when it comes to the structure of the lyrics compared to pure dance music. It's a producer's medium first and foremost, since he or she writes the music and builds the tracks, then chooses the right vocalist to sing the song. There have been a few exceptions naturally, since several dance-pop artists such as Janet Jackson and Madonna took control of the direction and sound of their records. But even when divas like those become stars, the artistic vision is still the producer's. Dance-pop is music that's about image more importantly than it is about substance. In other words, the lyrics don't matter as much as the rhythms.
