Another new artist I’ve been ahead of that might be starting to emerge a bit. Her debut single was pretty epic. This one has breakout hit potential.

Definitely one of the more ear-catching tracks I’ve heard this year when it comes to originality. Lo-fi/alt-pop with some funk to it. Reminds me of a modern-day Beck.
I’ve been saying Jax Jones is a dope producer. I’ve been saying this singer Au/Ra has an incredible voice. Today they come together to put out a beautiful light melodic house/dance-pop single that sounds like a global smash hit.
This is all about a dope hook and hard beat. Watch it become a trendy meme banger or something.
Gunna hopped on a house track. I like the originality of that (though I know a few other trap artists like Future recently have as well).
A new rhythmic pop star on the rise. I’ve previously featured her here.
They got one here.
Gorgeous mellow classic R&B vibe by two of (if not THE two) prettiest voices in R&B.
Gotta give him credit. This song is fire. Still putting out radio-worthy heat almost 20 years after he debuted. When you think of the best and longest-lasting commercial R&B artists of this era, you normally think Usher, Chris Brown, Trey Songz off the top. Omarion belongs in the conversation.
Welcome to vocal Afro House. Presented to you by the Queen of Afro House.
What a dope hook and nice melody. Great featured artist choice and closing verse (which actually isn’t included in the video). Mellow but still hard.
