Emerging Artist

Belly (#5) is a Palestinian-Canadian rapper out of Ottowa who has seen success in his home country, including winning a Juno award and three MuchMusic Video Awards. He has steadily climbed the Emerging Artists chart recently, making himself part of a wider wave of Canadian hip-hop and R&B artists leaving huge impressions on the U.S. music scene; this group includes Drake, The Weeknd (Belly co-wrote six songs on The Beauty Behind the Madness, including The Hills), Torey Lanez, and fellow Emerging Artists Majid Jordan.

After signing with Roc Nation a couple of months ago, those resources are coming to bear and his latest single Might Not (ft. The Weeknd), from the Up for Days mixtape, is charting at Rhythmic radio and making its way up the Urban chart, giving wide exposure that is starting to grow his social media audience and sales. It sounds like he’ll have a steady stream of material coming out this year, leading up to an album release, and after recent support slots with The Weeknd we’ll surely hear of live dates before too long.
