5 American Artists to Watch in 2021

2020 across the pond has been eventful to say the least. We saw the death of artists with great potential like Pop Smoke as well as King Von. It has also showed us more great artists like Polo G as well as J.I the Prince of NY who are now flourishing. This is a list of artists who may be next to spread their talent across the country and across the world.

Lil Kee

Lil Baby has had a year he will never forget. Dropping his first number one album, My Turn, as well as killing every feature. Artists on his label 4 Pockets Full such as Rylo Rodriguez and 42 Dugg have also had a successful year. Now it is time for his new signee, Lil Kee, to shine. Listen to his track “Hear Me Out” below.

Stunna Gambino

2020 has seen Lil Tjay and J.I shake the streets of New York. This next artist is looking to emulate the New York style that many argue began with A Boogie wit da Hoodie. After recently releasing “Rivals” featuring Toosii, Stunna Gambino is deemed to be the next big artist to come out of the ‘trenches’.


After collaborating with Gunna back in 2016, he slowed down with the release of his music whilst Gunna took full charge and is now at the top of his game. The rumours are that he is working on new music with ‘Wheezy outta here’, so it will be interesting to hear what he brings in 2021. Listen to their track “UK Millennium” below.

Marmar Oso

Marmar Oso is a 21-year old R&B singer from Sacramento, with features from artists such as YK Osiris and G Eazy, as well as over 2 million monthly Spotify listeners. He recently released his album Marvins Room which includes “Number 1” featuring Teejay3k.


Lastly is Phora, who has a catalogue of music dating back to 2012 when he was just 18 years old. Six years later he is still consistent and brings nothing but heat. He recently released his fourth studio album, With Love 2, which featured artists like Ty Dolla $ign, Kehlani and Jhene Aiko. Listen to their track “Destiny’s Song” below.
