His critically acclaimed single “Take Me To Church” has earned him his first Grammy nomination and the number one spot on Spotify’s global chart. He’s also performed on the iconic Saturday Night Live and Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show stages, and recently sold out New York City’s famous Irving Plaza Venue.

Talk about having great family genes! The kids in this month’s You Oughta Know band, Echosmith, are one photogenic bunch. As if that weren’t enough, they have great personalities, too!

We’re bringing you as much on the delightful Sam Smith as we can throughout the month, but the 22-year-old is lucky if he can sleep in the same bed two nights in a row.

So what does June’s You Oughta Know artist do for 24 hours in New York City? Perform on Big Morning Buzz Live, take in the sights and compete for Beyoncé-themed prizes, among other things.
The lovely Iggy Azalea has been setting both the charts and our hearts on fire with her brand new album, The New Classic. She’s double trouble on the Billboard Top Ten with her Ariana Grande duet, “Problem,” and also her solo single “Fancy,” which features an awesome Clueless-inspired music vid! Despite her crazy life, she found time to swing by VH1 headquarters in NYC to answer questions and show off her fab fashion.
The four brothers of KONGOS (Danny, Johnny, Dylan and Jesse), may be among the most crush-worthy VH1 You Oughta Know artists, but let’s not forget that these guys know how to ROCK.

The guys came all the way from South Africa to rock us in New York City with their unique blend of African rhythms and amp’d up guitars, and we had an expert photo crew on hand to document a day in the life of a world famous group.
