BBC Sound of 2018

So we are back again and the BBC have dropped their yearly “Sound of…” list, showing the newest musicians most likely to have a breakthrough year in 2018.

Joining the list from the UK urban scene is Rated Awards Best Newcomer Not3s, who’s had a massive year this year and just made it into the top 40 peaking at 38 with “My Lover”, as well as Rated Award nominee Yxng Bane landing in the top 10 with the massive single “Bestie” alongside Yungen.

Last year’s winner Ray BLK was on the 2018 panel alongside previous nominee Stormzy. The list also features some talented but under the radar artists alongside artists like Khalid who has already had a huge year state side, reaching No 4 on the US charts.
