VEVO DSCVR Artists To Watch 2023: FLO, GloRilla, piri + tommy, Ayra Starr

MBW has once again partnered with VEVO to showcase its DSCVR Artists To Watch. We’ll present the complete class of ’23 over the next two weeks, starting with…


Carl Young, Head of Music & Talent, UK: “FLO are making some serious waves in the music industry right now, their impeccable harmonies and melodies, paired with a refreshing revival of UK 00s RnB are making them an undeniable force. Ever since hearing Cardboard Box, I knew this group had something very special. I’m absolutely delighted to have them involved in Vevo’s annual DSCVR Artists To Watch.” 

FLO: “We had so much fun arranging and recording our VEVO DSCVR session earlier this year, and it’s amazing to now have been highlighted as an Artist To Watch! Thank you for having faith in our girl group and vision. We are honoured to stand beside all the other artists highlighted, and can’t wait to keep growing in 2023.”


Mika Sunga, Senior Manager, Music Programming: “GloRilla has been an artist that I have been watching for a while and as her popularity grew I realized that she was a star. She has been collaborating with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and continues to make hits. She has a different style and dope flow that puts her over the edge and I can’t wait to see what fire she drops in 2023.”

GloRilla: “I’m truly grateful for VEVO’s support, recognition and platform to showcase my abilities. I’m still evolving as an artist, but I appreciate VEVO for believing in my potential and highlighting my music. It’s been a whirlwind year, but I’m excited to keep growing and grinding.”

piri + TOMMY

Becky Thomas, Editorial & Programming Lead, UK/EU: “Combining dreamy pop vocals with ethereal beats, piri + tommy are bringing a fresh new take to the UK’s dance scene, and we couldn’t be more excited to add them to the mix for 2023’s Artists To Watch program. The electronic duo have already seen viral success and with fans such as Charli XCX and Pinkpantheress singing their praises, it’s clear to see how much talent piri + tommy possess. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for them in 2023.”

piri + tommy: “We are so gassed to be VEVO Artists to Watch! DSCVR always has such a sick selection of artists and we can’t believe we’re part of it.”


Jodeci Rampasard, Manager, Music & Talent: “We’re super excited to have Ayra a part of our Artists to Watch campaign. With incredible tracks like Rush and Bloody Samaritan. She’s built an amazing international buzz and we’re excited to see what’s next in her journey.”

Ayra Starr: “At every point in an artist’s career, there are different things to measure success. This happening to me at this time is one for me. Being recognized by VEVO is definitely a dream come true. It’s a sign I’m doing something right, it’s a sign to keep on going. I deeply appreciate this and I’m super excited.”Music Business Worldwide
