22. Hit re­play

Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

When Ki­iara’s EP qui­etly ap­peared ear­lier this year, crit­ics freaked out, mainly be­cause no one had ever heard any­thing quite like this 21-year-old be­fore. Her jams are equal parts “Sorry”-era Bieber and “Un­ti­tled (How Does It Feel)”-era D’An­gelo, with a Birdy-like fragility in the vo­cals. (Con­fused? Just lis­ten to the track “Gold” and you’ll get it.) Fun fact: She did it all while work­ing full-time at a hard­ware store.
