BLXST WINS XXL’S BEST NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR

On January 24th, Blxst was announced as the winner of the XXL Award for Best New Artist Of The Year. Blxst was chosen by XXL’s curated Awards Board that consists of industry heavy hitters including Kevin “Coach K” Lee, Roc nation’s CEO Desiree Perez, Maverick’s Cortez Bryant, DJ Khaled, Lil Kim and more. After his huge year in 2021 and being apart of XXL’s 2021 XXL Freshman Class, this was a well deserved win to start 2022 with high anticipation of what’s next in his career.

Blxst’s recent EP Just For Clarity marks the first release for Blxst since his critically acclaimed debut EP, No Love Lost, released late last year. With over 150 million streams to date, the project hit #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Chart, while its hit single “Overrated” has reached #32 on the Mediabase Rhythmic charts and #11 on Rolling Stone’s Trending 25 Chart. Accompanied by a cinematic series of music videos detailing love, loss, and loyalty in the city of Los Angeles, the success of No Love Lost resulted in a deluxe release this past December, featuring collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, Tyga, Dom Kennedy, and Bino Rideaux. Declared an “Artist to Watch in 2021” by Billboard, BET, Complex, Essence, HipHopDX, Pigeons & Planes, UPROXX, and more, Just For Clarity marks the next sonic step in the multi-dimensional artist’s stratospheric career.
