Girl In Red
The top five from the list will be revealed in early January. Each day from Sunday January 3 to Thursday January 7, a countdown will take place to reveal the eventual winner.
Sound Of nominee Pa Salieu released his debut mixtape ‘Send Them To Coventry’ last month. In a review of the tape, NME said it proved that the youngster was “unbelievably gifted with a ceiling nowhere in sight,” adding: “He carries the entire mixtape with his singular voice oscillating between conventional rap flows, dancehall toasts and ice-cold venomous lyrics.
“Though features flood the project from UK rapper M1llionz ( ‘Informa’) and Trinidadian artist Boy Boy (on No Warnin’) to R&B hero Mahalia’s feature on ‘Energy’, Salieu allows them a moment to shine in his spotlight which confirms that we may be witness to the next great UK star.”
