The New Faces of: Pop (2018 Version)

To continue the “The New Faces” series, started a little while ago, I’ve compiled a new lists of Pop artists you should keep an eye out for. Because pop music is such a broad term, I’ve compiled 3 lists (Alternative, Electro-Synth, R&B Fusion) for you to get a better understanding of what theses artists sound like. To ensure that you understand these artists, each list is accompanied w/ a playlist full upcoming artists breaking into each sub-genre 🙂
