Listmas: 25 Artists to Watch in 2016

Artists to Watch

What a time! 2015 was definitely the year for breakout artists. Audiences were introduced to the likes of Alessia Cara, Tory Lanez, Bryson Tiller, Fetty Wap, Post Malone, D.R.A.M., Leikeli47, and the list goes on. With so many new names popping up in headlines (and on playlists of streaming services across the ‘Net), keeping up could have easily become a process in itself.

Luckily, STASHED marches to the beat of its own drum. Music tastes vary significantly throughout the squad, allowing for more diversity when it comes to picking a few of the artists we believe will make some noise in the coming year. While there’s an artist like Belly who is ending the year with his new Roc Nation deal, there’s California’s own KR who showed an impressive amount of growth on his latest release. Among them are 23 other artists—all at different points in their career, and chosen from a range of genres—who can potentially do big things next year.

Cheers to you for tuning into another year of STASHED’s Listmas, and much success to the 25 artists to watch in 2016.
