Shazam and Apple Music offer their artist tips for 2021sociallyk
Is it just us or has there been less publicity around ‘artist tips for 2021’ than in previous years, in terms of industry polls and streaming promotions? Shazam has made its predictions though, and is using sister service Apple Music to get them out to an audience.
The music identification app has dug into its data to choose 50 tracks with ‘early indicators of future growth’ from emerging artists. It’s being launched as an Apple Music playlist, with the streaming service having additionally chosen five of the featured artists as particularly worth watching this year. They are: Masked Wolf, Blackstarkids, Serena Isioma, Tai Verdes and LB Spiffy. Shazam is hoping they’ll follow in the footsteps of Billie Eilish, Benee, Beabadoobee and Olivia Rodrigo – who all trended on Shazam ahead of their breakout success.
