World-class artists and hitmakers
In 2015, Kygo made Spotify history when he became the fastest artist to reach 1 billion streams, earning him the streaming platform’s Breakout Artist of that year. His first album, Cloud Nine, received wide critical acclaim, and was #1 on iTunes Dance Albums Chart and on Nielsen Soundscan’s Electronic Albums. His newest album, ‘Kids in Love’, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
Meanwhile, Britain’s Got Talent alumnus Calum Scott is taking the world by storm as he takes his first headline tour across Asia. His heartwarming rendition of Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’ is the lead single of his debut album Only Human, and the track has racked up millions in worldwide sales as well as a nomination for British Single of the Year in last year’s BRIT Awards. The album itself peaked at #5 on Australia’s main music sales charts upon its release.
American singer and songwriter Khalid rose to fame with the release of his single ‘Location’ in 2016. Since then, he’s been steadily winning over fans and critics alike with coming-of-age and soul-driven hits like ‘Love Lies’ and ‘Young, Dumb & Broke’ which topped the charts in the Philippines and New Zealand, and reached top 10 in Australia and Belgium. He also won Best New Artist at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. Khalid has been featured on tracks with some of the industry’s top artists including Calvin Harris, Marshmello, Shawn Mendes and Marin Garrix.
