Nadia Rose, AJ Tracey & SG Lewis Kick Off Brand New For 2017 At Our Launch Party
Such a good night.
We're still getting over what an amazing night we had at our Brand New For 2017 launch party.
Kicking off proceedings at Tape London we had MTV presenter extraordinaire Becca Dudley being the host with the most. She announced all 10 nominees and read out a cute message from last year's winner, Anne-Marie, who sadly couldn't join us due to touring across the pond.
First up we had one of our 2017 nominees, AJ Tracey, performing hit tracks and those from his new EP Lil Tracey and boy, did he put on a show.
As one of this year's most exciting MCs, we can see big things happening for the West London based musician in 2017. Watch this space.
There's already been a LOT of hype around the next performer of the night, and deservedly so. The one and only Nadia Rose bounded on to the stage and performed two of her biggest hits 'SKWOD' and 'Crank It' while we jumped along in the crowd.
This young woman from Croydon, South London, is already smashing it on the scene - you only have to look at the fact that she's taken home a MOBO so early on in her musical career to know that big things are coming. We're so excited to see what she gets up to next year and we've still got the 'SKWOD' chorus in our heads this morning. Thanks Nadia!
Taking us partying into the night was one of the Brand New For 2016 nominees, SG Lewis. He took to the decks to perform an epic DJ set that had everyone on the dance floor.
Dropping remixes of the likes of Chance The Rapper's 'All Night' and generally just bringing ALL the vibes, we were grateful to get the opportunity to see him in his element once again.
Keeping the party going were Club MTV residents R3WIRE and Varski who were on the decks well into the night.
And of course the rest of our lovely nominees were in attendance. RAYE, Tom Grennan, JP Cooper, Ray BLK, Disciples, Stefflon Don and The Amazons all popped in to say hi, with Bishop Briggs being with us in spirit! We also have to give a massive shout out to MTV Brand New's official sponsors, MTVUP!.
