Roz Mansfield, Artist Partnerships Manager at YouTube, UK comments: “We are thrilled that this year’s Ones To Watch list is so diverse - a true reflection of music culture in the UK and Ireland today. The list represents a range of cultures all of which have one common thread; they are able to build genuine fan bases on YouTube Music, without boundaries.”
Man of the hour Aitch adds: “I definitely appreciate what YouTube has done for my career. I wouldn’t be where I am today without it, I don’t think anyone would.”
