Primadonna presents the sounds of 2022
Barely two years into her career, 23-year-old South Africa-born, London-based artist Baby Queen (real name Bella Latham) has already carved her name deep into pop culture as its new anti-hero. Since her first release in 2020 ‘Internet Religion’, a takedown of how social media warps her generation, she has dropped a steady slew of singles that placed her at the forefront of a musical movement. Her music is all over Netflix’s hit coming of age drama Heartstopper. Tipped by everyone from NME and Radio 1 to Courtney Love, Jody Cormer, Pale Waves, and Olivia Rodrigo, Baby Queen is ready to reign supreme.

A fireball of energy, Queer-Core London punks, the Oozes, have already made huge waves with their phenomenal success across TikTok and Spotify with their singles “Blah Blah Blah” and “Bitch Boy” – which have each been streamed millions of times. Lead singer Tom Gilbert’s writing is inspired by his experiences as a queer, trans man growing up under a Tory government. They will change your life!

Chinese-British siblings Esme Emerson are one of the best brand new new acts to come out of East Anglia. They’ve just released their debut EP but are already getting noticed by Radio 1. Check our their brand of dreamy bedroom pop, and in years to come you can tell your friends you saw them when they were just starting out.
