Occupation: Singer

If you weren't put onto this British songstress' debut album, Devotion (which has yet to be released stateside), we suggest you google her music ASAP—you wouldn't want to be the last one on the bandwagon when she takes over the U.S. with her tour next year. The chanteuse, whose personal style transports you back in time, has a sound all her own—an effortless blend of poetic, Sade-like R&B and an in-the-now subtle tinge of electropop.

For a taste of what next year will sound like, take a listen to the 28-year-old singer's infectious new single, "Sweet Talk." Tara Aquino
