Matchbox Twenty

What they’ve been up to: The band hasn’t released an album in nearly a decade. Meanwhile, lead singer Rob Thomas did pursue a solo career and drop two fairly successful albums. However, the band has reunited for the second time in 10 years and is apparently working on one of the least anticipated albums of the year.

Why YMCMB should sign them: On their hit “Real World,” Rob Thomas claimed he always wondered what it’s like to be the rainmaker. We’re pretty sure Weezy could teach him.

Complex says: Actually, Rob Thomas is kind of a good song writer (if cheesy adult contemporary elevator music is your thing).
