In the music world, there’s always an incredible amount of young talent making noise in the industry. These artists have generated buzz and made their presence felt. Their work certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans and prominent figures in the music industry. Spotify, in particular, has a new program called RADAR, an emerging artist initiative focused on highlighting rising talent from across the world. The program has been extremely successful, receiving two billion streams and counting and continues to expand globally.
For Episode 7 of the For the Record Podcast, Spotify spotlighted six up-and-coming artists from the RADAR program: J.I. the Prince of N.Y, Lous and the Yakuza, Young T & Bugsey, Merci, Mercy, and Rina Sawayama. The young talent also had an opportunity to speak with one of the key members of Spotify’s International Music Team: Andy Sloan-Vincent.
