    Top 10 Music Artists To Look Forward To In 2024

    The year 2023 has been a ride with various interpolations between artists and genres. Several crossovers dominated the charts, like Jack Harlow and Jungkook’s ‘3D’. However, the year was dominated by Taylor Swift with her chart-topping albums and the successful ‘Eras Tour’. While the year had many new emerging artists in the pop, country, and electro-music arenas, the hip-hop genre was dominated by the OGs.

    The music industry has become one of the most lucrative industries in the world. In 2022, the value of global recorded music was $26.2 billion, with more than 10% growth in music streaming subscriptions. The emergence of Latin pop and reggaeton on the music scene has contributed hugely to the commercial and artistic aspects of the industry. New-age pop girlies like Tate McRae, Sabrina Carpenter, and PinkPantheress are packaging the old, nostalgic mood into a fiercely self-identifying sound. Many artists have shown promise in recent years and can emerge as successful artists in the coming year.
