    Spotify Predicts Music's Stars Of 2015

    Get a head start on the next year in music with these 18 artists to watch.

    They may not have a crystal ball, but the folks at Spotify do have the next best thing: heaps and heaps of hot, fresh listener data.

    By crunching the numbers to see who's trending among its 50 million + users, talking to record labels, and exercising a little old-school editorial judgment, they came up with a list of 18 new artists poised to make a splash in the coming year.

    This is the second time Spotify has created a list of so-called "Spotlight" artists. Last year, the streaming service went all-in on the electro-gothic FKA Twigs, pop universalist Betty Who, Irish soul troubadour Hozier, genteel rapper G-Eazy, and edgy pop-import Tove Lo (pictured), among others.
