Mama Dousha, Mafalda Cardenal and Enol, among Shazam’s 2024 musical predictions

Music news

Unity is strength, they say. Thus, Shazam and Apple Music They have worked together to analyze and publicize which artists could stand out this year that we have just begun. At WECB we have already presented 20 promising music stars—national and international—to follow closely, and since it never hurts to broaden our horizons, here are some of the names that these two music applications are betting on. Artists from up to 21 different countries covering styles as varied as French pop or contemporary gospel, and that have been obtained thanks to the exclusive algorithms and predictive data with which Shazam operates, together with the experience of Apple Music’s global editorial team.

Within the national panorama, there are four artists and two collaborations that stand out. On the one hand, Rikitiof Mama Dousha and Scotty DK, is a sensation in Catalonia mixing elements of electronica, author songs and urban pop. And, on the other, Narcosof Enol and Mafalda Cardenal. A meeting that culminates after these young people—from Asturias and Alicante, respectively—have worked with Pole, This life is a mess.

At an international level, the song identification tool has made a selection of 5 artists who can conquer charts and territories globally, like the nigerian Bloody Civilianwho has participated in the BSO of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever; Flyana Bossthe hip-hop duo composed of Bobbi LaNea Tyler and Folayan Omi Kunerede, who have already worked with Missy Elliot on You Wish; Kenya Gracewho has managed to enter the official WECB List with his pop dance hit strangers; The Last Dinner Party, the breakout British band of the season that has conquered such established stars as Florences and the Machine; and RIIZEa K-pop band that has managed to make South Korea fall in love (and cross borders) with their song Get a guitar.

At the local level, they gain relevance: aupinard in France with its pop combined with bossa nova; JacotĂ©ne in Australia to the rhythm of R&B and Soul; sira with the dance and hip-hop style in Germany; punjabi and rap Sukha in India; and the author’s song Yarge that dazzles Venezuela (but also in Chile, Peru and Paraguay).
