Decline Raye feat. Mr Eazi
2013 was the year of surprise albums, long-awaited comebacks and rising stars. What does 2014 have in store for the urban dance world? We've had a guess...
Although up against some tough competition - Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Kanye West and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - we think that Jay Z might be the man to take home the gong this year for 'Holy Grail'.
We don't want to spread false hope, but after years of waiting our fingers are crossed that 2014 will be the year we hear some new Dre. We can hope, can't we?
After the year that Beyonce had in 2013, she's going to struggle to outdo herself. We think the only way will be hooking up with her DC sisters just as she did at 2013's Super Bowl, but this time we're hopeful for new material.
2012 saw Drake and Rihanna take to the main stage, 2013 welcome JT and Jay Z. He hasn't performed at the British festival since 09' - surely 2014 is the year of Yeezy?
The pair only hooked up this year, but we all know that one year in music world is the equivalent of 5 years on the real one, so we'll bet on wedding bells this year.
Their collaborations with at-the-time little known artists (Sam Smith, Sasha Keable, AlunaGeorge) have always resulted in hits. We're excited to see who Disclosure introduce us to this year.
Pharrell set all kinds of records this year with his collaborations on Daft Punk and Robin Thicke tracks 'Get Lucky' and 'Blurred Lines', with a new solo album due for release in 2014, crazy chart success for Pharrell is probably the most obvious prediction on this list.
Beyoncé sent the music world into meltdown when she released an entire surprise album overnight. We wouldn't be surprised if other artists take a leaf from her publicity book in 2014, and we also wouldn't be surprised if they fail miserably. Some things should be left to Bey.
Were they? Weren't they? Are they? Aren't they? We've lost track. Maybe in 2014 Drake and Rihanna will just openly come out as a couple.
The 17-year-old Dutch DJ had a major breakthrough with his no.1 hit 'Animals' in 2013. We predict big things for him in 2014, so much so, we've gone for not one, not two, but three number ones. Picture: Facebook
He's already got dates in the diary for Australia performances, but no word of a UK visit. With the huge success Em saw with 'The Marshall Mathers LP,' we think he'll find some time.
In 2012 Chris Brown quit Twitter. In 2013 Chris Brown used Twitter (yeah, he got it back) to announce he was quitting music (yeah, his new album is out this year). Is seems Chris Brown isn't great at quitting things, so maybe this year he'll quit quitting stuff. Wait a second...
There's no doubt that Drake has mastered the slow to mid-tempo emotional jam. This year, we reckon he'll take on an upbeat, feel-good anthem. You laugh now...
'The Heist' was a platinum smash in 2013, although not confirmed, Macklemore has hinted at new music this year.
We predict this year will see the like of Hardwell, Avicii, Alesso, Calvin Harris and more of the world's top DJs team up for a back-to-back ultimate dance event. Watch this space.
We all know Yeezy's head over heels in love at the moment, and it looks like they had fun filming the first one, so chances are that 'Bound 2' wasn't Kim's first and last video-gig.
This might be a bit pushy, we're aware she literally just released an album. But in her 'Self-Titled' documentary Bey said she recorded 80 songs before making the cut. This means there are 66 unheard Beyonce songs in existence - and they need to be heard.
Both Rudimeental and Disclosure have shaped British music this year. The two need to hook up asap for the ultimate collaboration. We're hopeful of it happening this year.
