Welcome back to another edition of Saturday Spotlight. Each week we review submissions from all over the globe, picking the best out of the batch to highlight at the end of the week. If you’re an aspiring rapper, a producer wanting to create a buzz, or a singer looking to expose their talent, Saturday Spotlight is dedicated to discovering the next star. This week, we received over 50 submissions, below are the two picks!
Whether it’s your latest single or a new beat you made, all upcoming artists can submit music to us for Saturday Spotlight on this link.
With smooth verses and elegant wordplay, Julian Versace has an ability to combine vintage elements with modern day music. The 26-year-old South Florida raised, New York-born artist has recently released a new track, “Mandarin Jarritos”, a smooth rap/trap single jam-packed with punchline, braggadocious, and introspective bars, all delivered with effortless cool.
Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, Bobby Jaggerjack represents the artists committed to the betterment of their craft in all aspects — flow, writing, and content. On his latest single ‘Welcome to the Jungle’, Bobby Jaggerjack hits all 3 in a flawless hat trick. With bars that express both his frustration with local music industry politics as well as his tunnel-vision belief in himself, the well-defined artist is certainly one to watch.
Through our artist discovery platform Saturday Spotlight, we have discovered some amazing talent in the past including Russ, Ty Dolla Sign, Mez, IDK, Victoria Monét and Trap Beckham to name just a few. In most cases, coverage on HHNM was their first look among media outlets. Find the submission guidelines here.
