This year has already been a big year for music. We have seen some brilliant new artists, and heard some amazing songs. But who are the big stars set to rock the rest of this year in style? Take a look, in no particular order:
George the Poet
George the poet is a little different to anything else you’ve heard before. He doesn’t sing, he doesn’t rap; he speaks, over a beat. He wants to make a difference in the world and encourages others to develop a voice to encourage change too.
James Bay’s debut album has proved very successful, going to number 1 in the UK. His singles have all been very popular too, and he’s already won awards for his talent. This confident singer/songwriter makes an impact on stage even if it is just him and his guitar!
Taylor Swift has been around for a while now, but she’s just getting bigger and better as time goes on. Her most recent single, ‘Bad Blood’, features a verse from Kendrick Lamar and the video is full of famous beautiful people, such as Cara Delevigne. It’s rumoured that the track is aimed at Katy Perry!
Sam Smith, another fairly new artist that simply exploded on the scene and impressed so many with his vocal range and emotional tracks. He really is one to watch from now on.
Ed Sheeran, best pals with Swifty, has risen to fame fairly quickly since we were introduced to him in 2011. His flame red hair and down to earth personality make him someone you want to be best pals with. He’s mean on the guitar and has the vocal range of an angel!
Kate Tempest is another spoken word artist making a big impact on the music scene. She’s a mercury nominated rapper and is a really interesting artist to look into. She says one of her biggest influences is Samuel Beckett!
Ariana Grande is an actress and singer, known largely for her singing career today. She’s gotten more and more beautiful since she featured on the Disney Channel as Cat Valentine, and always has something sassy to say in her songs.
Drake always comes up with a mix of tunes for us to enjoy. Some are real club bangers and gym tracks to pump iron too, while others are quite emotional and about love. He likes to mix things up but his tracks are always great to listen to.
Pharrell doesn’t look like he’s aged a year since he skated on into the music industry in 2001. Just see how good he looks on the Voice Season 8! He’s collaborating with a lot of artists lately, so although you might not hear him, he might just be behind the scenes.
Calvin Harris is another celeb who just seems to get better with age. Once a scrawny black haired boy singing about girls, he’s now a muscular, blonde hunk who can get any glamorous female he likes. At the minute, it’s Taylor Swift – power couple alert!
