Sometimes, it’s hard to keep up with all the new artists that come out – so much so that it might feel like pop culture is passing you by. If you want to stay up to date on the latest music trends but don’t have time to devote your life to it, these are five key artists to keep your eye on.

Wet Leg

This amazing band’s debut single, Chaise Longue, will likely be more than enough to get you hooked. You’ll hear plenty of energy in the guitar mixed with melodies you can’t get out of your head. The wry comedic sensibility in the lyrics completes the picture, making it so you’ll always want to hear more from this outfit.

Willie Jones

Here’s the next big name in country music and one of the big reasons why country is changing as people know it. Seeing him perform is always a very special thing. He boasts a voice full of soul and has no shortage of Southern swagger in everything he does. That’s why it’s no surprise that he’s one of the artists revitalizing the country genre and bringing bold, exciting new sounds into it.


Masterful flow and super-dense lyrics are combined in this rising star. “From Peng Black Girls” to “Keisha’s and Brenda’s,” Enny’s style and depth always seem to be improving. She doesn’t just tell stories in her songs – she allows the listener to experience the events in the narrative along with her.

Andy Rivera

Representing his home country of Columbia and Latin music in general, Rivera is always fully prepared to give it his all. He has a unique, strong sense of style and an air of positivity that’s highly infectious. You can tell that Andy Rivera truly loves what he does, but he somehow manages to stay humble through it all. Many have already fallen in love with his catchy grooves, and it seems that the artist is only just getting started.


If you’re looking for an authentic artist, you’ve found one with Poupie. Bursting with personality, she’s as eccentric as she is sensitive. It’s clear with every new song that Poupie has so much that she wants to share with her audience. With enough spontaneity that keeps you guessing, you’ll never grow tired of listening to the fashion of pop, trap, and reggae this French artist comes out with next.
