Deezer NEXT is all about supporting the next generation of great music and, in 2018, one of our biggest tips for future stardom is east London’s Yxng Bane. Having already recorded over 18 million views on YouTube for “Rihanna” and magically reworked Sheeran’s “Shape of You”, Yxng Bane is already well on his way. Watch him burn into another stratosphere through 2018 and beyond.

Who is he? Yxng Bane is a 21-year-old British rapper who has topped the UK charts with his feature on the single “Bestie” by Yungen and received viral attention for his remix of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You”, along with the single “Rihanna”.
