SHEEN highlights the five artists to look out for before 2021 is over.

These five artists have been influential talent shaping the future of the music industry as you know it. SHEEN has spotlighted artists notable for hitting key milestones in their careers. For some, that means charting Billboards, receiving plaques, and being featured on major platforfms. For others, it might be their uniquely unapologetic style and catchy lyrics that have helped them make the dramatic jump from neighborhood popularity to worldwide recognition.

Chinese Kitty

Rather than sugarcoat a single world, Chinese Kitty says everything she needs to say in her music. There’s no pretense or cap. Instead, she bodies beats with unapologetic East Coast intensity, slips into seductive bars like an apex temptress, and doles out knockout hooks with fire and force. She dropped “Kitty Walk” as her debut in 2018. Through bartending and emerging as an it-girl in New York nightlife, she organically cultivated an impressive social media audience. After DM-ing Hitmaka, she wound up on the powerhouse remix for “Thotbox” alongside Young MA, Dreezy, DreamDoll, and Latto. She released her Kitty Bandz mixtape in 2019, yielding anthems such as “Opps” [feat. Cuban Doll] (524K Spotify streams), “Hitstick” (293K Spotify streams), and “Stories of a Ghetto Kitty” (271K Spotify streams).

In the aftermath of its arrival, she lit up the stage at Rolling Loud New York and drew the attention of Nosiey and more. Building an audience of nearly four million followers across social media platofmrs, the rapper and entreprenuer unleashes one unfiltered and uncompromising banger after another on her full-length debut album, SMD [EMPIRE].
