DJBooth prides itself on being one of the first (legal) destinations to enjoy brand new music and discover never-before-heard-artists. However, in our never-ending quest to always feature the newest of the new, we sometimes overlook on-the-rise talent that sits just below the surface of our radar. Need an example? Well, how about Universal Republic signee Ben One. The Chicago native officially released his debut single, Never Leave My Girl, earlier this summer, but it wasn’t until after the single climbed nineteen spots on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop charts, though, that it caught our attention. Featuring emcee Shawnna and producer Emmaculate (both fellow Windy City natives), the record is set to appear on the singer’s forthcoming debut, tentatively titled The Book.
