Vevo is rounding out the first week of its 2019 DSCVR Artists To Watch series on Friday (Nov. 30) with two of pop’s rising young talents, Elley Duhé and Robinson.

Hailing from Alabama with an upbringing that infused the jazz and soul of her New Orleans neighbors, Elley Duhé offers an alternative-pop edge that evades any immediate labels or comparisons. She first garnered mainstream attention as a featured vocalist with artists such as Zedd on the summer jam “Happy Now,” but Duhé has quickly become a force all her own.

On her debut EP Dragon Mentality, Duhé elevates pop conventions with radical abandon on tracks that simultaneously feel of-the-moment and ahead of their time.

In a prepared statement, Vevo head of content, programming & marketing JP Evangelista tells Billboard, “Elley Duhe, with her blend of ethereal vocals, instantly got us excited for what’s to come for her in 2019. A self-described ‘old soul, new world creative’ is just one of the reasons that we were drawn to her, her performances will satisfy existing fans, and no doubt attract millions more.”

Check out Duhé perform “Counterfeit” from the Dragon Mentality EP below.

In the same pop sphere but from the other side of the globe is New Zealand singer-songwriter Robinson (full name Anna Robinson) who brings a fresh take on pop that adds maturity to optimism. The “Nothing To Regret” singer has dropped a consistent string of bangers over 2018, each building on Robinson’s ability to adapt to every space in the pop landscape.

“Since the release of ‘Medicine,’ Robinson has really caught our eye,” Evangelista tells Billboard. “With attention-grabbing singles that have racked up millions of streams, she’s showing no signs of slowing down as we head into 2019.”

Watch Robinson perform “Don’t Trust Myself” for Vevo DSCVR below.
