In my opinion, music is the greatest creation of man. Music has the power to connect people in unknown ways. It enables one to express oneself, be it with the poetic use of lyrics or just a blend of fabulous instrumental sounds. Music is as refreshing as the early morning breeze. However, one tends to get tired of the same old tunes sometimes and hence, is on the constant lookout for new fine quality records and artists. To put your search to an end for a while, I’m at your service to provide you with some popping artists from an array of genres.

1. Dua Lipa

artists

For fans of: Hailee Steinfeld, Zara Larsson, Tove Lo

Dua Lipa began her career at the age of 14 and can be seen flourishing at the mere age of 21. Lipa produces tracks that infuse EDM and soul effortlessly with her softly hoarse voice. Her music would leave anyone craving for a party right with its first beat.

Hear for yourself: Blow Your Mind (Mwah)

2. 6LACK

artists

For fans of: PARTYNEXTDOOR, Bryson Tiller, Roy Woods

6LACK’s dark R&B vibe is a definite YES in my books. His songs have impeccable production with relaxed, thoughtful vocals. It almost sounds like 6LACK is sharing particular incidents from his life to his audience as one would to one’s friends. His tunes are extremely indulging and I can assure you this boy is going to be on repeat, if given a chance.

3. Banks

artists

For fans of: SOHN, FKA twigs, Låpsley

Jillian Rose Banks, commonly known by her stage name BANKS, is nothing less than a glorious, powerful artist. Taking a personal note on this one – I love her. I adore her lyricism and the way she interprets and expresses her life. Her music is so vulnerable yet very edgy. Her style stands unique which results in the delivery of phenomenal pieces.

4. SZA

artists

For fans of: Jhene Aiko, the Internet, Kehlani

Solana Imani Rowe, better known as SZA, shares the same record label as Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q. The combination of her tranquil voice and hip hop beats is extremely satisfying and addicting. Collaborating with artists like Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar, SZA has produced absolutely stunning tracks.

5. EDEN

artists

For fans of: blackbear, Olivver the Kid

Jonathan Ng, releasing music under his alias EDEN, is an exceptional singer-songwriter and producer. At the age of 21, EDEN has given tracks which seem very polished but simultaneously, very raw. The vocals have a mature tone against a background consisting of a mixture of electronic and acoustic sounds. In my opinion, EDEN’s tracks are sublime without the shadow of a doubt.
