BBC Music Releases ‘Sound Of 2016’ List

After being instrumental in launching the careers of Corinna Bailey Rae, Jessie J, HAIM, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, and Adelegend herself, being named ‘BBC Sound of’ is one of the highest honors a new artist can receive in the music industry.

This year’s list is surprisingly filled with majority unknowns. You’ll usually find a few names that already have a major worldwide buzz, but this year’s list it different, sans Alessia Cara. Check out the list below:

Alessia Cara

Billie Marten


Dua Lipa


Izzy Bizu

Jack Garratt

J Hus

Loyle Carner

Mura Masa


Rat Boy

Section Boyz



Of this list, on a global scale, we’d say Alessia Cara is the frontrunner, with names like Mura Masa, NAO, Frances and Section Boyz definitely making names for themselves as well. WSTRN is pretty damn dope, as is Izzy Bizu; not to discredit the remaining finalists. Check out all the great music above, and tell us who you think should win this year’s BBC Sound of 2016 Award.
