Sebastian Mikael - Swedish-Ethiopian R&B artist Sebastian Mikael (aka De-Lor) grew up obsessed with songs he heard on the radio, and even wanted to know how they were made. As a fledgling vocalist, he got involved with recording sessions in his native Sweden, but he grew frustrated with his inability to grow and moved to the U.S. to study at Hollywood's Musicians Institute and the Berklee College of Music. A 2011 mixtape, J'Adore, gained the notice of executive Sylvia Rhone, and it led to a contract with the Epic-affiliated Slip N Slide label. The year 2013 was busy for him. He appeared on the Kings Dead's "The Reunion," and he officially released the singles "Beautiful Life" (a predominantly acoustic, Babyface-type ballad) and the Al B. Sure!-referencing "Last Night" (featuring a guest verse from Wale).
B Smyth - R&B singer/songwriter B Smyth got his start as one of millions of teenagers uploading YouTube videos of himself covering other artists' songs. Beginning in 2011, while just 17 years old, Smyth uploaded his versions of songs by Michael Jackson, Maxwell, Frank Ocean, and other established hip-hop and R&B stars, some of his videos eventually going viral and being re-posted by various media sources. His smooth style drew comparisons to more grown-up acts like Chris Brown and Usher, and before long his impressive video view counts had the teen performing at various talent showcases, eventually landing a deal with Motown in 2012. His debut single for the label, "Leggo" (featuring 2 Chainz), dropped later that year and quickly began racking up millions of video views.
