Jazz Cartier Delivers Incredible Performance Of ‘Tempted’ And ‘Red Alert’
The future of hip hop continues to be born and created in the 6ix. Following artists like Drake, The Weeknd, Majid Jordan and PARTYNEXTDOOR, the next artist to watch is undoubtedly Jazz Cartier, who tonight delivered an incredible double performance of his tracks “Tempted” and “Red Alert.”
The homegrown artist has been changing the sound of Canadian hip hop from the inside out, with Cartier’s 2015 mixtape Marauding in Paradise and his 2016 mixtape Hotel Paranoia both being long-listed for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize.
Cartier, who burst onto the music scene in 2011 with his debut mixtape Losing Elizabeth, earned two iHeartRadio MMVA nominations last year, including Best Hip Hop Video for “The Valley/Dead or Alive” and Best New Canadian Artist. Continuing to add to his ever-growing list of accolades, Jazz received a nomination this year in the Best Hip Hop Video category for his virtual reality visual achievement “Red Alert/100 Roses.”
The 2017 iHeartRadio MMVAs are hosted by Alessia Cara and Joe Jonas and feature performances from Camila Cabello, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Julia Michaels, Post Malone, Jazz Cartier, Niall Horan, DNCE, and Arkells.
