The beats and characteristics of Latin American music have been gaining increasing global attention. With Feid, Kali Uchis, Peso Pluma, J Balvin, and other prominent names in reggaeton at the forefront, could 2024 be the year for new projections for Latinos?

As the calendar turns to a new year, Sprite (@sprite_br) is already keeping an eye on a new array of emerging artists who have been working to refresh the musical scene. The list presented by Hypebeast highlights a diverse group of Latin American talents spanning hip-hop, funk, trap, and corrido tumbado, emphasizing the breadth that the next generation brings to the scene.

TASHA & TRACIE @tashaetracieog

Tasha and Tracie are the most prominent female artists in Brazil. The rise began with the release of the EP Rouff (2019) and consolidated with the EP Diretoria (2021).
