About BET Amplified
“BET Amplified,” a multifaceted campaign that identifies and elevates stars on the rise, launched in January 2020 in the U.S. The goal of “BET Amplified” is to engage in specialized social and digital activations, giving artists full frame promo spots across all BET channels including social media, and creating unique opportunities for them to engage with audiences across BET’s platform of over 90 million households around the world.
Artists are selected based on criteria including their unique sound, social media presence, and projected impact on the music industry and entertainment industry at-large. With the first “BET Amplified” global artist, the BET team sought to identify a groundbreaking artist with transcontinental appeal and expand to reach audiences around the world. Sampa The Great was a clear choice.
The young rapper who went all loud globally with his groundbreaking “Sore” song got spotted after his hard work proved he has worked enough to cross boundaries with his style of music.7
