Current Push Artist

Ariana Grande is just 21, and she’s already a music-biz record-breaker. Her smash hit ‘Problem’, featuring fellow breakout star Iggy Azalea, is the biggest single of 2014 to date—and made her the youngest woman ever to debut a track with more than 400,000 downloads in its first week. Now, with the album’s release sure to vault her even higher toward superstar status, Ariana is in the spotlight as MTV’s PUSH artist for August. All month long, stay tuned for Ariana exclusives including an exclusive audio stream of songs from ‘My Everything’ later this month!

Past Push Artists

Charli XCX has written and guested on two of the biggest singles of the past two years—Icona Pop’s ‘I Love It’ and Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’—and opened for Ellie Goulding and Paramore on tour. Now she’s headed for superstardom as an artist in her own right. In anticipation of ‘Boom Clap’ becoming an epic hit, MTV have named Charli XCX July 2014’s PUSH artist! Stay tuned all month for exclusive interview footage, live performances and more.

After teaming up with dance duo Disclosure, lending his vocals to producer Naughty Boy on the U.K. #1 single ‘La La La’, landing the BRITs Critic Choice Award AND winning the BBC’s Sound of 2014 poll (the first male artist ever to do so!)
