FLO and GloRilla Perform for Vevo’s 2023 DSCVR Artists to Watch

Vevo, the world’s leading music video network released the complete list for its highly-anticipated Vevo “DSCVR Artists to Watch” 2023 campaign. Starting Monday, November 28th, Vevo’s DSCVR ATW will showcase high-quality live performance video content from the class of 2023, with unique performances from each artist, shot exclusively for Vevo.

Born out of Vevo’s taste-maker series and brand DSCVR, “DSCVR Artists To Watch” is now in its 9th year. With a record-breaking 550 submissions, the current list consists of 20 global artists whom Vevo has tipped to break through to the mainstream.

Vevo’s DSCVR ATW program is one of the most highly anticipated and competitive lists in the emerging music space, as the artists and bands that make it receive critical exposure and promotion that help propel their careers. ATW artists and bands will be marketed and featured in Vevo’s expert music video programming via playlists and editorial features across Vevo’s network, including YouTube and connected TV platforms, such as Roku, Samsung TV Plus, and Apple TV.

Vevo’s Artists to Watch content will also see the official launch of a brand-new DSCVR set. The new set was designed to help artists express themselves in new and interesting ways through visually striking elements like new entry points, columns, corridors, archways, and windows.


Speaking to their Vevo DSCVR “Artists To Watch” live performance video for “Not My Job,” FLO says, “We had so much fun arranging and recording our VEVO DSCVR session earlier this year, and it’s amazing to now have been highlighted as an Artist To Watch! Thank you for having faith in our girl group and vision. We are honoured to stand beside all the other artists highlighted, and can’t wait to keep growing in 2023!”

Carl Young, Head of Music & Talent, UK adds, “FLO are making some serious waves in the music industry right now, their impeccable harmonies and melodies, paired with a refreshing revival of UK 00’s RnB are making them an undeniable force. Ever since hearing ‘Cardboard Box’, I knew this group had something very special. I’m absolutely delighted to have them involved in Vevo’s annual DSCVR Artists To Watch.”


Speaking to her Vevo DSCVR “Artists To Watch” live performance video for “Tomorrow 2,” GloRilla says, “I’m truly grateful for VEVO’s support, recognition and platform to showcase my abilities. I’m still evolving as an artist, but I appreciate VEVO for believing in my potential and highlighting my music. It’s been a whirlwind year, but I’m excited to keep growing and grinding.”

Mika Sunga, Senior Manager, Music Programming adds, “GloRilla has been an artist that I have been watching for a while and as her popularity grew I realized that she was a star. She has been collaborating with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and continues to make hits. She has a different style and dope flow that puts her over the edge and I can’t wait to see what fire she drops in 2023.”

Vevo has a long history of supporting and introducing emerging artists to new global audiences. Its DSCVR ATW program champions emerging artists through live performance content, with alumni including now-household names, such as Billie Eilish, Pop Smoke, Sam Smith, Lewis Capaldi, Jorja Smith, Arlo Parks, Guaynaa, and more.
