Jorja Smith and Rex Orange County are among a group of four artists selected by Spotify as part of the streaming service's RISE program. Soul singer Smith and bedroom pop star Rex are joined by country rock band LANCO and Colombian reggaetón artist Karol G.
Spotify will highlight one of the four emerging artists every two weeks via a personalized multimedia RISE playlist. There will also be short form documentary films and original recording sessions with unique collaborators further down the line. You can check out spotify.com/RISE to hear more from each artist.
RISE was launched in 2017. Its first season saw the spotlight shone on Trippie Redd and singer-songwriter Lauv.
