2020 has brought a lot of negative things to a lot of people from all over the world, which is why we’re probably all happy to say that it’s almost coming to an end. This is why you might have started thinking about discovering some new music that you can listen to during your New Year celebration party.

However, you might be wondering – what are the top 5 American singers and songwriters that will probably be big in 2021. Fortunately for all individuals searching for an answer to this question, this article could help. Let’s take a look at the list of singers and songwriters:

  1. Deb Never

If you’re a fan of the entire ‘90s grunge scene, you might just fall in love with the music of Deb Never, whose EP “House on Wheels” saw a strong debut. The lyrics are filled with some amazing hooks, as well as memorable and completely honest lyrics that you’ll probably relate to.

She managed to perfectly capture the entire ‘Gen Z’ with the eerie, yet charming song “Same”, and with the song “Ugly”, she managed to paint a picture of a destructive relationship that we all found ourselves in. Deb has been an ascending music star for some time, especially since she toured with Dominic Five.

Besides the tour, she also appeared on Brock Hampton’s “No Halo” and as a member of the “We Did it” collective, she has also performed and worked with musicians such as D33J and Shlohmo on the emotional song “Nothing Left”. During an interview, she stated that she always knew what type of music she wants to produce, but that she now has the means to create it.

  1. Kenny Mason

Kenny Mason comes from Atlanta and he has gained the status of the best-kept secret on the rap scene back in 2019 for his lively songs such as “Nike II” and “Hit”, both of which perfectly discovered his ability to write some truly honest lyrics, combined with dynamic flows.

If you play one of his songs, you’ll notice that in one minute, he’s singing his way through the bridge of the track before he decides to hit the booster and unleashes a fast verse, making the entire track completely dynamic, lively, and different than everything else you might have heard recently.

If you enjoy rap music, you should know that it’s likely that he’s next in the line of rappers including J.I.D. and Isaiah Rashad. Mason’s music is a bit different, especially since he manages to perfectly tell a tale of growing up and hustling around, combined with his macabre humor and sense of self.

  1. Dan Avidan

Besides being a musician and songwriter, Dan is also a popular YouTuber, comedian, as well as actor. You may have already heard about his musical parody duo called “Ninja Sex Party” where he performs with Brian Wecht, as well as his video game-based parody trio called “Starbomb”.

In 2020, he has published an album where he collaborated with other people on acoustic covers. The album is titled “Dan Avidan & Super Guitar Bros”. The initial single is a cover of a really popular track we all know, “Kiss From a Rose”, originally performed by Seal.

Since the beginning of his career, he has earned a net worth of over 3 million dollars, which is quite logical since he isn’t only a musician, but an actor, comedian, and YouTuber as well. If you’re interested in learning more about Dan Avidan, you can check out taddlr.com for more info.

  1. Baby Keem

Although he managed to become popular during 2019, Baby Keem is expected to become a huge star in 2021. At the beginning of 2019, he released 3 singles, and he also participated in a wide range of collaborative projects, all of which have helped him kickstart his career.

One of the things that all fans love about him is that his style and lyrics are quite quotable and convincing, and by the end of 2019, he released another track, “Orange Soda”, that turned out to be a major hit. The popularity of the tracks prompted Keem to schedule 6 shows in 6 cities with guests such as the well-known Drake and A$AP Rocky.

Of course, we wouldn’t be writing about him if he was super famous, meaning that his previously released singles only create a buzz about his talent. However, that buzz is expected to grow throughout the next year. At 20-years old, Keem is one of the most distinctive singers expected to thrive in the next couple of years.

  1. Benee

Whatever song you play from Benee, you’ll notice that there is an unavoidable charm to every track, no matter if she’s being hard on herself on the track “Supalonely” or when she’s telling one of her ‘close’ friends off on “Find an Island”. She actually became known in 2017, by posting several covers that perfectly depict her distinct and lovely voice. And, by the time she officially released her first songs, she has already shown some huge potential while completely managing to avoid being basic.

She collaborated with Josh Fountain from “Leisure” and with him, Benee release 2 Eps, “Stella And Steve”, as well as “Fire on Marzz”, both of which are quite impressive and good at telling stories about growing up and falling in love. Her natural charisma and amazing voice are probably things that’ll make her super popular in 2021.

Conclusion

2021 is only a few days away which is why you should start it in the right – by listening to some new music and celebrating the end of a truly difficult year. Depending on your preferences, there are various new artists that you could listen to, all of which are expected to thrive during the next year.
