In honor of the Future 5 for 2022, SiriusXM is currently running an exclusive billboard in Times Square dedicated to the five new artists that we predict will break through this year across the pop, R&B, country, hip-hop and rock genres. This year’s Future 5 artists (as seen in the billboard above) are 42 Dugg (hip-hop), Mae Muller (pop), MARZZ (R&B), Morgan Wade (country) and Wage War (rock). Past Future 5 selections include Doja Cat, Gabby Barrett, Roddy Ricch, Lil Uzi Vert, Carly Pearce and more.

42 Dugg: Shade 45 (Ch. 45) was the first radio outlet to play 42 Dugg’s single “Maybach” (feat. Future). Followed by support from Hip Hop Nation (Ch. 44), the song resides in both channels’ top 10 most-played songs. The song reached the Top 10 on the Urban chart, and Hip Hop Nation furthered its support by adding “4 Da Gang” (feat. Roddy Ricch), which has helped the song reach 137 million streams to date.

Mae Muller: Hits 1 (Ch. 2) provided a platform for two of Muller’s US firsts, conducting her first-ever US radio interview as well as being the first broadcast outlet to play one of her songs, a collaboration with NEIKED and Polo G called “Better Days.” Soon after, Muller was named a Hits 1 to Watch artist. Upon the release of her debut EP, no one else, not even you, the North-London singer-songwriter sold out a headlining tour and played at some of the UK’s biggest and most prestigious festivals.

MARZZWithin a month of the release of her single “Countless Times,” The Heat (Ch. 46) identified the song as a Future Fire track, becoming the first broadcast outlet to commit to airplay of the song. The Heat has gone on to lead the nation in radio support of MARZZ by a significant margin, and “Countless Times” reached the top 10 of the channel’s countdown show, The Hotness.

Morgan WadeThe Highway (Ch. 56) began playing Wade’s single “Wilder Days” when the artist was named as a prestigious Highway Find artist. Wade was subsequently signed to Sony Music, and “Wilder Days” has since garnered 20 million streams. In 2022, Wade will join country superstar Luke Combs on tour.

Wage War: Octane (Ch. 37) world-premiered the band’s single “Circle the Drain” from their fourth album, Manic, and was the first broadcast outlet to add the song, ultimately naming the band an Octane Accelerator. The song hit No. 1 on the channel’s weekly countdown show, Big Uns. Octane’s airplay support also included coverage of their performance at October’s Welcome to Rockville Festival and remains nearly triple the amount of terrestrial airplay for “Circle the Drain” to date.

With a rapidly expanding offering of new streaming channels available on the SXM App, the launch of new collaborator and artist branded channels, and shows dedicated to supporting new and trending music, new artists have had the opportunity to reach SiriusXM listeners like never before.
