Vevo debuted two live performances with Pop Smoke for the VEVO ‘DSCVR ARTISTS TO WATCH’ 2020. ‘Artists to Watch’ is now in its 6th year with the list consisting of 20 artists who Vevo believes will break through in the coming year. Vevo will premiere two performances from one artist per day beginning November 4th, with the rollout culminating on November 29th.

“Hip-Hop started in New York, so when an artist bursts onto the scene with a breakout anthem that generates remixes by both Nicki Minaj and Skepta, people pay attention,” says Jordan Glickson, Vevo’s VP of Music and Talent. “Pop Smoke has captured lots of ears with ‘Welcome To The Party,’ but he’s not just a one-hit wonder; the Brooklyn MC followed his hit with the smashes ‘Dior’ and ‘War.’ And all this before releasing his debut album. Keep an eye out – an even bigger 2020 is on tap for the rapper who says he’s all about ‘aggression and fashion’.”

“DSCVR Artists to Watch is a key program for Vevo and now in its 6th year demonstrates our commitment to championing emerging artists.” says JP Evangelista, SVP of Content, Programming & Marketing. “The Vevo team takes great pride in fostering new talent and helping expose our audience to artists we feel will make an impact in the forthcoming year. We’re excited to shine a light on these 20 artists, and watch as they continue to grow their fan base into 2020.”

Vevo has a long history of helping emerging artists break through to new and wider audiences. Past alumni of Vevo’s DSCVR ‘Artists To Watch’ series including Billie Ellish, Alessia Cara, Little Simz, SlowThai and Lewis Capaldi.

If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.

Today South Florida artist Cameron Airborne, drops the music video for his song “No Cuffin” featuring buzzing rapper Jackboy. In the Andrew Colton directed music video, listeners get a hazy and psychedelic visual to go along with Cameron Airborne‘s catchy Summer bop. 

“The beat was a collaborative track with K.E. on the Track. He laced up the beat and I got Jackboy on there for the hook too. It’s just real catchy, we shot the video for the track and it just a had kind of club or pop vibe to it. It’s definitely a Summer song and its very upbeat and kind of fast paced, it def keeps the head nodding.”

Combing elements of guitar and singing, Cameron Airborne has found a lane doing his own thing combining it all with rap after performing in a band early on in his career.

“I play guitar because I had played in a band before and I ended up rapping. It gave me stage experience and the drive to want to do my own thing.” Cameron Airborne explained.  “I branched out and started doing my own music and I always wrote my own poetry so transitioning to rapping was natural. I can make trap music, I can make pop catchy sounding music and I can make real lyrical stuff too.  When I put out a projects I try to put out a little something for everyone to take something away from the project.”

Although most of the world has been shut down over the past few months with COVID-19, Cameron Airborne remains busy producing instrumentals and gearing up for his own studio where he will be able to record artists there. 

“Im just on the independent grind, I’m opening up my own studio and that way I can make money, just recording and doing sessions,” Cameron Airborne explained.   “I’ve been producing my own instrumentals and so I have a lot of music lined up and some big features tucked away for the right time to present them.”

Today rising Reggae and Dancehall artist, K‘Coneil releases his new single, “Quarantine and Chill.”

As the world remains on shutdown with concert venues and clubs across the world closed, artists like K‘Coneil have retreated to their homes to create.

Emerging with his aptly titled song, “Quarantine and Chill,” this Jamaican born artist has a hit on his hands and the world is responding via social media. As part of the promotion for the song, K‘Coneil got his fans involved making sure everyone followed social distancing guidelines for the Edwin Escobar Films edited visual.

“The single is called Quarantine and Chill is about being stuck at home with your girl and enjoying each others company physically and mentally. The video captures an array of beautiful females dancing and enjoying themselves while being quarantined, so it’s just one of those song so many people can relate to,” K‘Coneil said. “The song is produced by a few of my friends Keyz and Crooks and I wrote the song myself based on personal experiences living through COVID-19.”

Raised in a small town in the Parish of St. James, K‘Coneil grew up only four miles from Montego Bay in what he calls a “small poverty ridden area of Jamaica.”

“Back home the music is all about Dancehall, Reggae and Gospel. There’s lots of young talented singers aiming to be a big star one day just like myself, but I’m from a singing family so I have been in music since birth. When I started recording in 2010 I fell in love with making music and it’s been a journey since,” K‘Coneil said.

While K‘Coneil is used to being on the road performing and making appearances on radio like Hot 97 and Jams 99, he’s still determined to meet the fans halfway by continuing to release music. K‘Coneil added:

“Despite being unable to travel and perform for my fans ,I’m committed to continuing to release new music to keep everyone engaged in the meantime! Stay tuned for new music and videos. To your Success!”

Today Michigan rapper Mike Spitz drops the visual to his track based on his Midwest hometown, “Saginaw, Michigan.” The track is taken from his upcoming project, Best You Never Heard set for release in the coming weeks.

One trip down I-75 in Michigan and you will come to small town named Saginaw. Known for violence, basketball and failed economic hopes Saginaw is a struggling part of America’s decaying rust belt, yet Saginaw is a place called home to many who love the city like Mike Spitz.

“It is a look into my world,” Mike Spitz said of his new song about his hometown.”This song tells you about myself and where Im from. The video was shot at an early 1900’s mansion in Saginaw that’s believed to be haunted so the video is a little bit crazy. But isn’t everybody?”

According to Mike Spitz, Saginaw brought out the unique raw emotion and real life lyrics in his music. This is the first video of four that will come from Mike’s project, Best You Never Heard and is directed by Fresh Rich Visuals.

The album features production from Cory “Co-P” Peterson and also Mike Spitz himself along with some guest appearances from Jelly Roll, Rikk Reign, Woody Gates, and guitar by Shawn Yancer.

I’m actually shooting 3 more videos in the next month and I’m working on my follow up album right now. It’s gonna be a 10 song story completely produced by Scattered Brains (Struggle,Jelly Roll,Adam Calhoun, Waylon & Willie) at his studio in Tennessee,” Mike Spitz said. We had a lot of stuff planned but then this f**kin Coronavirus shit hit. Everything keeps being cancelled. My state is on complete lockdown. So I’ve been just writing and shooting as many videos as possible. I’m just trying to take advantage of the world shutting down. Probably never happen again.”
