Five Hip Hop and R&B Stars To Watch in 2018

Our money’s on these new playas to make it big this year

If you thought 2017 was a big year for the hip hop game with the likes of SZA and Kehlani busting out into the mainstream and Rapsody and Daniel Caesar earning Grammy noms, then 2018 is going to blow your mind.
As the hottest Dubai night club renowned for our love of the genre, WHITE Dubai has picked five new stars to watch who we’re positive are going to be hugely influential, not only this year, but in the years to come. Download now!

Trippie Redd
If the fact that he’s only 18 isn’t impressive enough, his two 2017 mixtapes, A Love Letter to You and A Love Letter to You 2 showed a talent beyond his years. Plus, Love Scars earned over 40 million listens on SoundCloud.

Lil Xan
Kicking off 2018 with his release, Wake Up, Lil Xan is capitalising on a previous year which saw his track, Betrayed clock up 158 million views on Youtube and a spot in the Hot 100. Not bad for a 21-year-old.

YBN Nahmir
While Rubbin’ Off The Paint made huge waves last year, hitting the number 46 spot in the Hot 100, it also earned him a collab with Chris Brown and plenty to look forward to in 2018.

Rico Nasty
Despite being just 20, Rico’s been kicking around for a while now, with her 2016 mixtape, Sugar Trap yielding the hit iCarly. And following up in 2017 with her Lil Yachty collab, Mamacita making the Fate of the Furious soundtrack, we can’t wait to see what 2018 holds.

Jessie Reyez
Grabbing attention with her 2017 EP release, Kiddo, the Colombian singer’s talent has been compared to that of the late, great Amy Winehouse. Plus, if you think Taylor Swift has the market cornered on autobiographical tell-all tracks, you ain’t heard nothing til you’ve heard Gatekeepers.
