With hits such as “Mi Gente”, “X” and “I Like It” with Cardi B, Latin Grammy Award-winner J Balvin is dominating global radio and streaming waves, at the forefront of the burgeoning Latin sound.
British R&B and soul singer Nao boasts a unique funk sound loved by many, seeing her recently perform a sold out show as O2 Academy Brixton amongst a massive nationwide tour.
