Rag N Bone Man, Sampha and Georgia are among the artists to appear on Google Play Music’s Ones to Watch 2017 tips list.

The list features 10 acts it expects to be huge hits next year and also includes RAYE, JP Cooper, Will Joseph Cook, Bebe Rexha, Sampha, Tom Walker, Off Bloom and Creeper.

It was compiled using a range of factors including track performance on new music playlists, streaming volumes on Google Play Music, number of YouTube subscribers as well as specialist Google Play Music UK editors’ recommendations and instinct.

Rag N Bone Man was particularly highlighted, as his popularity has escalated since the release of his single Human earlier this year. He is now Google Play Music’s most anticipated artist for 2017.

Watch him live in action at the recent PRS for Music Presents event:
