Anyway, I’m sure you have heard of Spotify Emerge? Spotify emerge is actually a talent hunt, offers unique insights into up-and-coming music talent across Asia by leveraging on Spotify’s wealth of data to identify ten emerging artists from the region, based on their virality. Of course this is in partnership with Globe Telecom & Spotify,the winner of this years emerge is no other rising rap superstar Shehyee!
He joins the ranks of previous Spotify Emerge winners, including Bastille and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The winner was chosen by Spotify and Globe fans through a mixture of streams, follows and shares.

I have subscribed to Shehhyee, Kai Honasan and Marion aunor months ago and followed their journey through Spotify emerge. Shehyee bested other nine up-and-coming OPM artists including December Avenue, Jeric Medina, Kai Honasan, Kito Romualdez, Marion Aunor, Midnight Meetings, Paolo Valenciano, Save Me Hollywood, and The Ransom Collective.
Known as one of the fastest-rising stars in the local hip-hop scene, Shehyee first rose to fame as one of the champions of the FlipTop battle rap league. His singles, Inspirasyon and Isang Umaga (featuring Yumi Lacsamana) have established his reputation as the next hot rapper to watch out for.
“It’s such an honor to be named the first Pinoy Emerge artist,” says Shehyee. “Thank you to everyone who listened, liked and shared my music on Spotify. Spotify Emerge has given me the chance to showcase my music not only to my fellow Filipinos but to the rest of the world.”
As well as celebrating with his fans at the Spotify Emerge finale, Shehyee will be receiving an exclusive promotional package from Spotify and Globe TM as a prize for being named the ultimate winner of the programme.
