Want to be ahead of the curve? The global Shazam Discovery Top 50, powered by Shazams from around the world and updated once a week, compiles up-and-coming songs from breaking artists. If you hear a song you like, add it to your library.
According to Variety, the artists included in the playlist show "momentum indicative of future potential." In other words, the playlist is attempting to discover artists before they go fully mainstream. The playlist uses Shazam's proprietary algorithms to offer a look at what music is trending, Variety said.
Some of the artists found on the playlist include Tones and I, Regard, Lil Tecca, and A$ston Wyld. Never heard of them? You will.
