  Over the past few years, Dreamville artists have been super consistent in dropping some amazing single and projects. JID has been a stand out from the beginning and has recently opened up a whole new space for himself. Fun Fact, he recently surpassed J.Cole's monthly listeners on Spotify, mostly due to his collab with Imagine Dragons for the Arcade League of Legends soundtrack.

I take pride to being the first to put someone on to some good music but I seem to be really late to this Wizkid party. Don't get me wrong, been a big Wizkid fan since "Holla At Your Boy" (and if you don't know that track and consider yourself and Wizkid fan, you need to revisit that thought).

If you haven't heard of Darkoo, then you are missing out on an amazing artist who is breaking barriers and destroying stereotypes of what a "female" artist should be. A Nigerian-born, UK-based artist, Darkoo first made waves with her hit single "Gangsta" which blew up just months before her 19th birthday and he's been dropping fire ever since. She's leading the way in a genre called "AfroSwing" which blends afrobeats, r&b, trap and dancehall that is taking over the UK.
