TOP "NEW SCHOOL" MUSIC ARTISTS

Updated: Aug 18, 2023

I have been listening to these artists for a while now and every song they make I can relate to feel the passion and effort they put into it. This is in no specific order. They are helping to build a NEW WORLD ORDER. A style that is unmatched. Remember that all music has a purpose, so apply it where you see fit. They deserve a round of applause for their open-minded and/or harmonic lyrics. Let's show them some LOVE!
