The Best Male Artists Under 25 Of 2023
As Gen Z's most-talented male artists finally reach 25-years-old, a new wave of young singers enters the music industry.

Whether you're into alternative, hip-hop, electropop, punk, R&B, or country music, these male artists under 25 are bound to find their way onto your next playlists. Versatile rapper Lil Nas X continues to dominate the Billboard charts and collaborate with many of today's hottest artists; and 2022 XXL Freshman Nardo Wick is ready to take the rap world by storm. Hip-hop moguls YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Baby Keem consistently deliver premium content across their records and featured tracks; and Justin Bieber's Australian protégé the Kid LAROI finally plans on dropping his highly-anticipated debut studio album KIDS ARE GROWING UP this year.
