2018 was magical but 2019 is littered with a jaw-dropping roster of untapped reservoir of music factories you would love to add their songs to your favorite playlist. These new music lords are doing the unimaginable; their very familiar with excellence to the extent that, they strive beyond perfection. On my quest to fish them out, i discovered something i feel might arouse your interest. Their technical know-how match with knowledge about the music business plus their creativity mandates unmeasurable level of trend values. On top of that, they are very united and supportive.
I have on my radar, a compiled list of top 5 new music lords to look out for in 2019. The list doesn’t follow any sequence.
1. J Derobie :
He bought credit for himself after his freestyle video caught the eyes of social media users last year. What was supposed to be just a freestyle ended up as “Poverty”, a single that worked the magic for him to breakthrough mainstream media and a larger market. Jamaican dancehall act Popcaan has even jumped on the remix of single making waves across the length and breadth of Ghana and transcending beyond its borders. The song the arrested the special attention of Nigerian megastar Mr. Eazi. As part of his support system help upcoming artists, J Derobie was enlisted on “EMPAWA AFRICA” an initiative in search of brilliant and talented underground acts. Without any particle of doubt, he has ready market for his artistry. His “Poverty” video has attracted 1 million views on YouTube in just two months, that’s how evident and ready the world is, to embrace his music.
2. Kiyo Dee :
His artistry can only be compared to the beauty of rainbow. I love to call him a “360 artist” yet deeply rooted in trap music, RnB, pop and afrobeats. He is that kind of artist you listen to his self invented style of music and ask yourself how was he reasoning at the time he was bleeding out sellable and admirable records through creatively composed storylines coupled with level headed lyrics. His second mixtape Free Books Sold : Neptune Pantera peaked number one on iTunes upon it’s release last month. The truth to it is, the mixtape is lyrically rich, and he mainly handled most of the production work. The said mixtape is a follow up mixtape to his first project after been signed to Speech Production, titled Free Books Don’t Sell : Volume One.
3. Lamisi :
She’s a living testimony attesting to the fact, as a lady you don’t need to be a slay queen or expose your cleavage or pudenda to attract public attention. She believes timeless content is enough to attract the needed attention. Her debut album “Brighter Sided” is a classic example of such timeless records. It has received more positive reviews from critiques, radio and TV panelists and most importantly her fans. There’s something about her songs that will intrigue you to love her and follow the journey of world music expedition. It’s important to state that, she’s not signed to any record label yet, but her album is rich and worth listening to. Possibilities of reaching the heights reaching the Grammy’s is assuring.
