Wow, what a year we’ve had. 2017 has been a year a successful year for music of black origin and has seen the music of these sounds receive global attention. 2017 has been a year where Drake dropped a playlist that was basically an album, SZA made men feel sorry for their callous ways and also a year where reality TV star became the first rapping female to go number 1 with her debut track (Cardi B). But what was most rewarding with 2017 was seeing UK urban music really take off. For years the UK urban scene has never received global attention, except for select artists, but this year we’ve seen the likes of Stormzy, Stefflon Don, J Hus, Michael Dapaah share songs and projects that have received global love. And with that being said we’ve carefully selected the best songs that have dropped this year that you should have been listening to via a long playlist for you to enjoy. We’ll also be sharing a ‘deep cuts’ playlist that’ll have songs you may or may not have heard but you’ll love. But for now, let’s remember all the bangers that we’ve been blessed with in 2017.
