This year has been a good one when it comes to music and new artists. As far as I can remember it has been two or three years since we had a strong year when it came down to new music and artists. Artists like Lil Uzi Vert and SZA came on the scene with their début albums and took over the year with solid singles while other artists solidified themselves as artists to be reckoned with in the industry. So with no further wait, here is my list of artists who helped define 2017 in music.

As of late mental health has become more of a common topic in the media. It’s reported that the suicide count is rising, making it the 10th cause of death in the U.S. as of this year. Over the years suicide, depression, and addiction has become some of the most prominent topics among hip-hop artists. Because of this, some listeners attribute their lives being saved by these lyrics and songs. Being able to have the feeling that you are not alone in a situation is what people need to have to help get over their situation.
