Singer/song-writer George Ezra will be kicking off what promises to be a successful year, after capping a very successful 2018, having been nominated for three Brit awards: British male, British single and British album, for his 2018 LP, ‘Staying at Tamara’s’. Its lead single ‘Shotgun’ spent 13 weeks in the Top 5, including four at No 1.
Meanwhile, having also been announced for London’s Wireless festival on the 5th of July, Cardi B is getting set to be one of the festival hits of the summer. She became the first solo female rapper to have a No 1 song in the US charts, for two decades, in 2017, and she has recently announced plans for a follow-up album to her Grammy-nominated debut, ‘Invasion of Privacy’.
Solange, sister of global superstar Beyoncé, has achieved international fame in her own right, winning a Grammy for her single ‘Cranes in the Sky’. She also received a Billboard Impact award for her denouncement of racism in her 2016 album, ‘A Seat at the Table’. American singer Khalid adds to the R&B element of the festival.
Among the other names revealed is Migos, who will also perform at the festival, as will French pop singer Christine and the Queens, whose 2018 album ‘Chris’ was named the best of the year by Guardian critics. While, The Streets will give their first festival performance in more than eight years, having begun a comeback with four new tracks released in 2018.
British DJ, producer and song-writer Mark Ronson will appear following the release of his fifth album, ‘Late Night Feelings’ , having recently reached the Top 10 with his single, ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’, featuring Miley Cyrus. He also recently won a Golden Globe for best original song with Lady Gaga in the film ‘A Star is Born’, and is nominated for an Oscar in the same category.
