There are more ways than ever to break big in 2018. A well-timed viral video, the right commercial placement, or a celebrity endorsement can do more for a new artist than radio ever could. Or you could just write a really good song, upload it to SoundCloud, and let your listeners do the rest.
This list has all of the above, and a whole lot more. These are the songs you might hear on radio months from now, after they've built up enough momentum or got the right push to take them to the next level. And even if that never happens, you'll definitely have at least one of them stuck in your head by the end of the day. Don't say we didn't warn you.
