New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Shazam is unveiling its 2021 predictions through a new playlist of 50 songs from up-and-coming artists who are poised to make a splash. The Shazam Predictions 2021 playlist is exclusively available on Apple Music worldwide at - More than 200 million fans worldwide use Shazam to discover new music every month, allowing Shazam to predict music trends and hit songs earlier than any other service.

Based on Shazam's uniquely predictive data and algorithms, and hand-selected by Apple Music's global editorial team, the 50-track selection features songs that show early indicators of future growth — early and consistent momentum in Shazam activity, as well as discovery in more than one country.

The playlist is a remarkably global and diverse list, with emerging artists hailing from 20 countries and representing 16 genres. Among these, Apple Music spotlighted 5 artists to watch out for in 2021 and beyond.

In total, the song has entered Apple Music's top 100 Hip-Hop chart in 51 territories.

This young trio from Kansas City started trending on Shazam in September 2020 and is already helping to redefine the contemporary band, mixing elements of indie and hip-hop, with a mix of contemporary lyrics and nostalgic analogue pop music. Their song "Acting Normal" has appeared on Apple Music's New Music Daily playlist and is getting some worldwide exposure. While the majority of their Apple Music plays are coming from the US, the trio is gaining some following in Russia, Japan, the UK, and China.

Serena Isioma
This Nigerian-American singer/songwriter based in Chicago started showing promising signs of growth on Shazam in November 2020. Serena mixes funk, indie, pop and R&B, as well as lush 70s-inspired soul with contemporary soundscapes, and her track "King" has been featured on Apple Music's New Music Daily, Today's Indie Rock, as well as the INDIY playlists.
