When Fuse caught wind of Emeli Sande last year, we couldn't help but be captivated by her soulful R&B, which boasts shades of Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone but is decidedly her own. And we're not the only ones who are enthralled: "Next to Me" just entered the Billboard Hot 100 and she nabbed the prestigious Album of the Year Award at the 2013 BRITs.
Accolades aside, this last month has been good to Sande in musical terms: She delivered a pitch-perfect performance on Ellen (which we dare you not to fall in love with) and she nabbed Kendrick Lamar for a "Next To Me" remix.
Best of all, we recently learned there's more Sande to come: She recently told Fuse News' Alexa Chung she's taking six months off in Scotland to write her next album.
We can't wait! That's why all this week on Fuse's cable channel, we're playing her music videos to spotlight this explosive talent. Look for Fuse on our Channel Finder to catch Sande's videos and our interviews with the burgeoning R&B star as part of Fuse's Top 20 Countdown all this week!
