slowthai has been picked by YouTube Music as one of its ’10 top acts for 2019′.

The Northampton-born rapper has been included on the streaming service’s ‘Ones To Watch’ artist spotlight.

Other acts on the list include Mahalia, Octavian, Grace Carter, Kojey Radical, Sam Fender, L Devine, Dermot Kennedy, Samm Henshaw and Jade Bird.

This list has been compiled by YouTube Music based on a variety of factors, including YouTube views, engagement from global music fans and YouTube Music analytics.

slowthai said: “It’s a blessing to be shortlisted by YouTube Music for Ones to Watch in 2019. Love to YouTube and everyone else supporting me.”

The list is dominated by a mix of individual singer-songwriters and is notable for not featuring any groups, comprising ten solo artists – reflective by trends, views and insights on YouTube.

Over the course of the past year, slowthai has released a steady string of singles including ‘North Nights’ / ‘The Bottom’, ‘Ladies’, ‘Drug Dealer’ and ‘Rainbow’ – mixing rap, grime and garage influences.

In October, slowthai announced the Brexit Bandit tour which will see him play across the UK and Europe in March and April next year.

While there’s no Northamptonshire gig, the closest the tour comes is Birmingham’s O2 Institute on Wednesday, March 27th.
