WHAT IT IS: Hailing from Oakland, California, Frankie burst onto the scene last year with her EP, Dreamstate, which was released via RCA and features “Problems Problems,” as well as her second single, “New Obsession”—for which she also released a music video. Billboard included “New Obsession” in their list of “20 Pop Songs You Need for Your Summer Playlist,” calling it a “slick, wildly engaging highlight.” The track was also included in Taylor Swift’s New Songs That Will Make Your Life More Awesome playlist. Frankie released her latest single, “Blink,” along with the music video in October. She’s expected to release her first full-length album later this year.

Lil Yachty (Quality Control/Motown/Capitol)
5/10/17

WHAT IT IS: Teenage Emotions merges Lil Yachty’s signature gleeful sing-rap and auto-tuned transmissions with hip-hop bombast, pop and ’80s cultural touchstones. A multimedia celeb, he’s appeared in commercials with LeBron James and Carly Rae Jepsen and has modeled for Nautica and Urban Outfitters. Known for a playful style, he’s sampled sounds from Mario Bros., Charlie Brown and the Rugrats theme. Thematically, he’s managed to wax poetic on everything from cotton candy to scenes from Pixar films. But on his upcoming album Teenage Emotions, Lil Yachty is proving that he’s no joke.
