Here's our wish list of artists to get to know this upcoming year.
But you knew that already
Artists who rocked this year, and we spoke to them.
In a good way
Some we'll get, one we won't.
The holiday season is upon us, and gift lists are currently being written by almost every child ages 5 to 55. Everyone likes gifts, especially the gift of music. Music doesn't stretch in the wash or run out. It doesn't expire (though some songs can get tired), and it can always be picked up again like the first day you heard it. Groove has a whole list of albums we want for Christmas this year. Some of these albums are out now, so they can definitely show up in our stockings. One though, not so much. But hey, Santa is a miracle worker, so who knows. Check out our picks.
The singer wears many hats (or fedoras) on new album
On his sophomore album "Unorthodox Jukebox," Bruno Mars plays the role of both the Lothario and the unlucky-in-love and, despite them being entirely different from the "Just the Way You Are"-loving, grenade-catching, marriage proposal-making crooner we met on his debut two years ago, he's equally convincing in doing so.

Why You Should Get To Know Him: Because he invented the phrase "Going H.A.M."
Big Kuntry King is no stranger to the fame. The ATLien rapper started in the Trap Music scene a while ago, having befriended T.I. and ultimately uniting under the Grand Hustle flag. His grind got him his own solo deal with Atlantic Records years back, and he's been at it ever since. With his upcoming project Dope & Champagne, Big Kuntry aims to deliver hot music to both worlds: the streets (a la dope) and the clubs (a la champagne). He's more focused than ever on being a superstar. Checking in with Groove, he talks about his experiences in the game thus far and how his new phrase is "Goin' slap."
