From women rap artists to house music, here is your guide on 10 artists you need to know in 2023:

1. Taliwhoah

I first listened to Taliwhoah’s Detail single back in 2017.

I was intrigued by the artist and their sound and have been hooked ever since! This is one artist, I want to blow up like MAJOR. They’re super talented and make good-sounding music that’s also versatile.

2. Lola Brooke

She is hard-core New York to me. I really enjoy Lola Brooke because she’s so tiny but that voice is SO BIG.

It’s another intriguing sound that you just can’t ignore. It’s hardcore and it’s so Brooklyn. She’s already blowing up and I can’t wait to hear more of her music.

3. Kaytranada

My living icon… man oh man. I love me some Kaytranada, his concert was a dream.

He’s literally a talented piece of art. I want Kaytranada to do the remixes for Beyoncé’s album. It would be great.

4. Masego

This is my musical husband. That sounds crazy… but I love Masego his music is *chef’s kiss* it’s going to hit every single time.

Silk…..2018, on Lady Lady is music to the ears. It’s the prettiest sound you ever wanna hear it’s a dream in yourself.

This song makes you wanna just dance around Central Park or somewhere beautiful with no thoughts. It goes so fast though, it’s less than two minutes long. Once it’s gone you have to replay it, to feel it again.

It’s just a warm sound of music, but it’s also emotional. It has passion, love, and everything else. Masego really blessed us with this one.

Then it smoothly transitions into I Need a Vision, a more upbeat less subdued song.

Masego is coming to Detroit March 25 at the Royal Oak Music Theater.
