GRACE (Regime Music Societe/RCA)
5/10/16

WHAT IT IS: Hailing from Brisbane, Australia with U.K. roots, this 18-year-old has proven to be one of the hottest pop/soul prospects of the year so far. GRACE grew up with the sounds of everything from Smokey Robinson to Janis Joplin and Shirley Bassey to Amy Winehouse. As for her own style, she has a raw, throaty, soulful sound and an emotional timbre that belies her tender years. Her first single, “You Don’t Own Me”—a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 anthem, which features new verses rapped by G-Eazy—is already a #1 hit in the U.K. and Australia, while breaking at Pop radio in the U.S. It was produced by its original producer, the legendary Quincy Jones, and Parker Ighile (Nicki Minaj).
