Every month, we highlight some of our favorite rising artists in the Best New Artists feature, but we know that not everyone is interested in discovering a dozen new artists every month. For those who are: we appreciate you. For everyone else, kick rocks we tried to take a step back at the beginning of 2021 and round up some acts that we’re especially excited to watch this year.
These artists are all in different places in their career—some are still gearing up for a debut album, some are reaching a tipping point and on their way to mainstream success, and a handful are just a few singles in. The common thread is that all of these artists are looking like they’re about to level up in 2021. That could mean commercial domination, or it could mean realizing the full potential of their creative vision. Success means different things for different artists, and our goal is never to simply predict “the next big thing.”
Today we’d like to introduce you to Cortez Williams, known professionally as Tezzy! Formerly known as PrettyBoyTez , is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter From Minneapolis, Minnesota. Tezzy! first gained recognition in January 2019 for his single “By myself” and “2 steppin” from his debut EP Prettyboy.
Since the new Year has been upon us (2021) Tezzy! has released multiple singles like “Unstable” and “Geeked Up” & with “Lemonade” being his latest single the Minneapolis native continues to impress with his melodies and catchy hooks which makes this fresh track sound just as good as it taste! Besides Who doesn’t love the refreshing taste of L E M O N A D E!.
Take a listen to some of his releases below.
