'kind of music' is the definition.

'popular with children?' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'popular' could be 'in' ('in' can mean trendy) and 'in' is located in the answer.
'with' could be 'w' (abbreviation) and 'w' is located in the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
