    Post Malone

    No newcomer experienced the same level of success (or drew as many cries of "industry plant") as Post Malone. The Dallas talent spent next to no time in obscurity after dropping "White Iverson." The song's meteoric rise is still in process all these months later, and follow-up singles such as the tastefully radio-ready "Tear$" and melancholic "Too Young," lend additional credence to the artist behind the best song 2015 has yet to offer.

    But it's not just the music: Post is always brimming with positivity in photos and was at ease in his first interview. The hip-hop-inspired singer seems ready for the next steps, and he's already carved out his own lane with just a handful of songs. In short, never question the potential of a creator who already gave us the excuse to croon "saucin' on you" and an impressive Bob Dylan acoustic cover. No ceilings.
