Every year Spotify releases their Spotlight playlist, a prediction of artists that will become big the following year based on analyzing the listening habits of their 75 million users. This year contenders include Banners, LÉON, and D.R.A.M., who was one of our daily discoveries with his hit “Cha Cha,” which also became a source of controversy when used by Drake for “Hotline Bling.”
