I love it when my friends introduce me to new artists, so I have decided to pay it forward. Take a break from Top 40 artists and discover new waves. Here’s a quick introduction to some dope artists with endless potential.

Tish Hyman

This Bronx native has worked with the best artists in the game including Kanye West, Jill Scott, Diddy, BJ The Chicago Kid, and more. Her soulful voice and raw lyrics are constant reminders of how beautiful and powerful music can truly be.

Take a listen to her track “Subway Art” below.

 

Smino

Chris Smith, better known as Smino, has collaborated with big names like Big Sean and Chance the Rapper. Born in St. Louis, this soulful rapper has created his own wave. His innovative, futuristic sound will keep you wanting more. 

Check out his tour dates to catch him in your city.

 

Oshun

Thandiwe & Niambi Sala are the conscious duo behind Oshun. Their music will set you free. They describe their genre as “Floetry meets Lauryn Hill meets Chief Keef”.
Make sure to check out their next event.

 

Aminé

 You probably have heard about Aminé already- seeing that he has 18 million plays on his song “Caroline” and 13 million views on its music video. Reigning from Portland, Oregon, the young artist’s career is finally gaining the momentum it deserves.

Keep up with young Aminé and his next shows.

 

Khalid

While his peers are starting to enter college, Khalid is entering the music industry and is killing the game. He has found his niche. His song “Location” has nearly 3 million plays.

 Bless your ears and listen to the track below.

 

 SiairaShawn

SiairaShawn will provide you with all the sweet, melodic lullabies you’ll ever need. This songstress’ music will take you to higher grounds.

Sabrina Claudio

Miami’s sultry singer, Sabrina Claudio, is creating her own lane. Her fame rose from her beautiful, light covers on YouTube. And just to let you know: her falsetto is unearthly.

Sy Ari Da Kid 

Sy Ari embodies all genres of music. To top it off, he’s an incredible songwriter. His mixtape, B4 The Heartbreak, featured Bryson Tiller and Tink. He’s worked with Waka Flocka, Future, and other artists.

Watch out for 2SOON which will be dropping early  November.

 

Xavier Omär

Many artists have changed their stage name-some more than others (Diddy).  Formerly known as SPZRKT, this epic crooner, has decided to change his name to Xavier Omär. His hypontic voice is rich and mellow; it will resonate in your ears.

Listen to his latest song below.

 

DVSN

I think I can safely assume most of you have heard of Canada’s finest duo: DVSN. I personally love them and decided to add their rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” because it’s ethereal.

Also, here is their remix to Aaliyah’s “One In A Million”, and it’s just as amazing.
