If you’re a music fan, you may be wondering who is about to pop out and have a stand-out year in music like Billie Eilish did in 2019 or Dua Lipa in 2020. Well, music experts definitely have a few guesses as to which rising stars are going to really shine next year. Here are just some of them.

Rina Sawayama

In 2020, pretty much all forms of nostalgia ruled as we dreamed about pre-pandemic times. From Dua Lipa and Kylie Minogue’s 70s references to The Weeknd’s 80s-inspired songs, we were all about the retro vibes. Well, Rina Sawayama’s music reinterprets the 2000s, which are coming back in a big way when it comes to fashion, leading us to expect her music will have a moment in 2021.

Flo Milli

From Megan thee Stallion to Saweetie to Doja Cat, female rappers are ruling right now, and 20-year-old viral American rapper Flo Milli is coming along to add her say to the trend.

Bree Runway

Londoner Bree Runway is another up-and-coming female rapper (as well as singer and songwriter) who you can expect to be hearing a lot about in 2021. Described as being like if Lady Gaga and Lil Kim had a love child, Bree has already snagged a Missy Elliot collab.
