Jodie Connor - SB.TV A64

For the sake of full disclosure, about a month ago I wasn't that sure about Jodie Connor. I liked her image, but I just wasn't entirely convinced. I'll be the first to admit I was wrong. The single's a slow burner that's stuck in my head, she's got such a sweet quality to her voice (as is evident from this A64) and I really think she's going to be huge.

I also picked her as one of the Redtop NEXT: 2011 artists, alongside four other massive homegrown talents. This week we put on a photo shoot with all of the NEXT artists together, which was pretty crazy. Look out for that. It's a lot more exciting than I'm letting on!

Devlin featuring Labrinth - Let It Go (VIDEO)

Surely this is a definite top ten? The two most interesting breakthrough "Urban" acts of 2010 for me. Not including Runaway which I played to death before the album dropped, this is probably my favourite song on Bud, Sweat and Beers.

Yasmin - On My Own (VIDEO)

This is sounding more like a hit with every listen. Video is cool, she looks great. Yasmin's voice isn't the most powerful but I really like her tone and I think her songwriting might carry her across the finish line.

Not to mention she looks like exactly the kind of popstar we need right now - the antithesis of the blonde, half-naked bimbos running around the charts. After the success of Runaway and the strength of this single, she's definitely an artist to look out for in 2011.
