SpotemGottem (Rebel/Se Lavi/Geffen)
4/15/21

WHAT IT IS: At the age of 18, SpotemGottem started his takeover of the Florida rap scene. The rising rapper released his 13-track project, Final Destination, in April of last year, which yielded the viral sensation “Beat Box.” The cultural impact of the record resulted in a range of remixes over the past few months with artists including DaBaby, Mulatto, Shenseea, Pooh Sheisty, Polo G and NLE Choppa, who fashioned their own renditions. As the song continues its rise, SpotemGottem is picking up cosigns from major hip-hop heavyweights for his seemingly effortless freestyles and hard-hitting beats. This talented youngster is cementing his status as one of the top artists to watch in 2021.

Shy Carter (Warner Music Nashville)
4/15/21

WHAT IT IS: With credits ranging from Kane Brown’s “Heaven” to Charlie Puth’s “One Call Away,” artist/songwriter/producer Shy Carter is one of the most formidable up-and-coming talents in Nashville. Rooted in gospel, jazz, R&B and soul, Carter developed an early career in hip-hop before his gift for storytelling and love of organic instrumentation led to him step out as a country artist. In addition to his solo career, Carter has worked with the likes of Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Jennifer Lopez, Nelly and more, and he’s also among the writers behind hits like Keith Urban’s “When God Whispered Your Name,” Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” and Rob Thomas’ “Someday.” Carter’s debut single, “Good Love,” is a fitting introduction to the man behind the music.
