Iโ€™ve read a lot of articles on music stars predicted to be big in 2017 and there seems to be an overriding view that the biggest artists and the breakthrough artists will be in the R&B and hip-hop genres. There were also a number of artists that appeared in several of the lists so I guess there is some consensus among those in the know about who we should be keeping our ears open for: Here are artists expected to hit big in 2017:

1. Ragโ€™nโ€™Bone Man

You could be forgiven for thinking that the Ragโ€™nโ€™Bone Man was a seasoned old soul singer from hearing his voice, but the unique thing about this guy is that heโ€™s a tattooed white guy from the United Kingdom!
