Recently Vevo has published a list of promising music artists to watch in the coming months… We checked who’s on Snapchat and put our collection here.

2016 was fruitful for this talented grime MC from West London. The Guardian put him on “The best new acts to catch at festivals in 2016” collection. A few months later, AJ was nominated for Best Newcomer and Best Grime Act at the 2016 MOBO Awards as well as appeared on the BBC Music “Sound of 2017” list.
