2019 Artists to Watch!
Even with fewer releases, 2018 was still a great year for the music industry! With breakout artists like Camila Cabello, Cardi B, and Ella Mai, there was no shortage of new music.
Now, it’s time to look forward to 2019. Even with expected releases from Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna, there’s a lot of new artists that will be surely sharing the spotlight!
Adrian King is a soulful new artist from Virginia Beach, VA. With a blend of pop and hip-hop sounds with authentic lyrical content, Adrian King is someone to watch. His Spotify streams back that up as well, 100,000 streams from two songs in four months with no record label! That’s impressive and we can’t wait to hear his EP!
Atlantic Records recording artist Ava Max is on the way up! Her single “Sweet But Psycho” is currently at #25 at US Pop Radio and #41 on the Billboard Hot 100. 226 million streams can’t lie! Check out the infectious song on Spotify and follow her on Instagram @avamax!
Ginette Claudette had an amazing 2018! She released two singles and an amazing R&B project titled On To Something! I’m not sure what Ginette Claudette has in store for 2019, but she’s on the way up! Check her out on Spotify and follow her on Instagram @ginetteclaudette.
Hanx is one of my favorite new artists because he doesn’t hold anything back. He’s not afraid to go to dark places that other people aren’t with his music. He shows that with his vulnerability with songs like “Mess” and “Late Thoughts” which are on his new project Antisocial. Check him out on Spotify and @blairehanks on Instagram!
LANY had a huge 2018 with the release of their new album Malibu Nights. 2019 is looking to be even bigger with the alternative radio release of “Thru These Tears” and their world tour starting in February! Get on board with LANY now on Spotify and @thisislany on Instagram!
Malia Civetz burst onto the music scene in 2018 with three new singles and an amazing live show opening for JoJo on her Leaks, Covers, and Mixtapes Tour. 2019 looks to be equally as promising with new music coming! Check her out on Spotify and follow her @maliafromvegas on Instagram!
Atlantic Records recording artist Matt Maeson released a new EP last year and sent his single “Cringe” to radio. With an opening spot on Needtobreathe’s acoustic tour, “Cringe” climbing the charts at Alternative radio, and an album coming in 2019, it seems like the sky is the limit for Matt Maeson!! Check out his music on Spotify and follow him on Instagram & Twitter @mattmaeson.
HITCO recording artist The Bonfyre released her first EP last year and had a couple singles sent to radio. 2019 seems to be shaping up for her with “Automatic” hitting the top 10 at Urban AC and hopefully more music on the way!! Check out The Bonfyre’s vibey R&B sound on Spotify and follow her on Instagram @thebonfyre.
Zhavia Ward had a killer 2018! The urban pop artist went from being a fan favorite on FOX’s The Four to releasing 3 singles of her own. 2019 is starting off quite promising for her as well! A remix to her single “Candlelight” was just released with a feature from Jeremih and the song should be going to Rhythmic radio by the end of the month! Look out for her tour and EP/album in 2019! Check her out on Spotify and follow her @zhaviaward on Instagram.
