38 Artists You’ll Be Listening to Even More Than Tay and Bey in 2016
We’re drawing to the end of 2015 (tear), and there have been a lot of great pop culture moments, like every cameo of Taylor Swift’s insane 1989 Tour, Caitlyn Jenner’s introduction and the groundbreaking year that followed. Oh, and let’s not forget Adele dropping her record-shattering comeback album 25 on an unsuspecting world.
But onwards and upwards, amirite? Two of the biggest music streaming companies, Spotify and Pandora, just dropped their 2016 Artists to Watch lists, and we’ve got ’em right here for you. Interestingly, among the 40 different artists named on these two lists, there are only two crossovers: Jacob Whitesides, an 18-year-old singer/guitarist from Knoxville whose covers have made him Internet famous, and Gallant, an R&B artist who is here to give the Weeknd + R.Kelly a run for their money. Listen to ’em all below!
