Featured Artist

Lil Uzi Vert

A rapper who grew up on the beats of Marilyn Manson and Kanye's 808 & Heartbreak, Lil Uzi Vert came out of North Philadelphia with a relaxed style that connected the dots between Young Thug, Chief Keef, and the A$AP Mob. Debuting by featuring on some DJ Diamond Kuts tracks, Uzi kicked his career into high gear in 2015 when he dropped "Dej Loaf," a dedication to the Detroit vocalist. Don Cannon hosted his mixtape The Real Uzi that same year, then DJ Drama helped broker a deal with Atlantic Records, which released his Luv Is Rage mixtape late in 2015. Don Cannon was back for the early-2016 mixtape Lil Uzi vs. the World, which also featured beats from Metro Boomin and Maaly Raw. Two of its tracks -- "You Was Right" and "Money Longer" -- crossed over and reached the Billboard Hot 100. Led by the Future collaboration "Seven Million," The Perfect Luv Tape was out by the end of that July. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi



Charley Blacks

Dancehall selector and singjay Charly Black, alternately known as Charly Blacks, started his ascent at singing competitions as a five-year-old. Black has been part of the Warlord International (Montego Bay) and Bass Odyssey (St. Ann) sound systems. As Tony Mentol, he made his recorded debut in 2004 with the single "Woman It's You." He eventually switched aliases to Charly Black and recorded a string of cuts for labels like Coppershot, M Bass, and VP, the last of which issued "Buddy Buddy." The 2014 track "Gyal You a Party Animal," based on Kurt Riley's Jambe-An riddim, gradually spread outside Jamaica to win over audiences across South America. It was licensed for the U.S. by Casablanca in early 2016. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi



La'Porsha Renae

An “American Idol” runner-up on Season 15 of the music reality competition series final season. La’Porsha Renae new single, “Good Woman,” has officially hit the top 20 on Urban AC radio. The song has been steady climbing for the last few weeks and has so far peaked at #17. Featuring a gritty mid-tempo track set off by Renae’s intense, power-packed vocals, “Good Woman” was produced by Harmony “H-Money” Samuels (Mary J. Blige, Ariana Grande, Fantasia) and Edgar “JV” Etienne (Fifth Harmony). Renae pointedly belts out on the refrain: “You’ve got a good, good, good, good woman / You better get it together and act like you know that you do.” At age 16, Renae tried out for the tenth season American Idol. After her college graduation at the age of 22, Renae was a victim of domestic abuse. After a year, she separated from her husband and moved to McComb with her one month old daughter Nayalee Keya. While recording her upcoming album, Renae found herself back in the spotlight when the ballad “Battles” was chosen as the theme song for the U.S. Women’s Olympic Gymnastics team during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. The song, which Renae originally sang during the Idol season finale in April, is also set to appear on her album.



WizKid

Nigerian singer/songwriter Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun (aka Wizkid) began his career in music when he was just 11 years old. His first record, Lil Prinz, was recorded in 2001 in collaboration with Glorious Five, a group consisting of Balogun and his friends from church. In 2006 he started pursuing music full-time, at first collaborating with various Nigerian pop acts, including OJB Jezreel, Naeto C, and Banky W. By 2011 he was ready to record his debut studio album as a solo artist; Superstar was released via Empire Mates Entertainment (EME for short) to great critical and public acclaim across Africa, propelling him to stardom in his home country of Nigeria. After multiple delays, and label disagreements, Balogun released his sophomore album, Ayo, in 2014. His second studio album featured a multitude of guest appearances, including a spot from Femi Kuti. It also featured Balogun's global breakthrough track, "Ojuelegba." Not only did the single cement his status as one of Nigeria's biggest pop acts, it was also picked up and remixed by Drake and Skepta, thrusting Wizkid into the spotlight on an international scale. In return, Wizkid appeared on Drake's 2016 single "One Dance." ~ Liam Martin, Rovi



Tory Lanez

Tory Lanez is one of the more versatile commercial artists to surface during the early 2010s. A songwriter and producer who flits between and fuses R&B and rap -- his vocals alternate between swift and rugged boasts and smooth and sensitive come-ons -- he made steady strides toward the mainstream with numerous mixtapes, guest appearances, and self-directed videos. He spent parts of his early life in Toronto, his birthplace, as well as in Montreal, Miami, Atlanta, and New York. Although he was known underground well before his 20th birthday, and was supported early on by Sean Kingston, he made some of his biggest moves in 2014. During that year, he was featured on "Me & My Bitch" -- a track off YG's Top Five album My Krazy Life -- and among his own tracks that circulated in 2014 was "The Mission," his first cut to hit Billboard's Twitter Emerging Artists chart. In July 2015, after he had signed an Interscope-affiliated deal with Benny Blanco's Mad Love label, he released "Say It," an R&B slow jam that sampled Brownstone's mid-'90s hit "If You Love Me" and peaked the following February at number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100. A handful of additional tracks, including the dancehall-flavored "Luv" -- his second Hot 100 placement -- led to his debut album I Told You, issued in August 2016. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
