This week we welcome two newcomers to the Trendsetters Chart! Bazzi and Derez De’Shon both make their Trendsetters debut after seeing some major spikes in their social media engagement. Keep your eyes peeled for these two promising artists!
Vine Star Bazzi is Back!
Detroit-native Andrew Bazzi has been quietly making a name for himself after his successful Vine career and he premieres at #7 on the Trendsetters chart this week. The R&B singer-songwriter grew a loyal following after posting covers of popular songs on Vine and has since been working hard releasing new original songs after signing with Warner Music. His third single “Mine” follows the successes of “Alone” and “Beautiful” and has helped him see a 365% increase in artist station adds month on month along with a 300% increase in Instagram followers.
Atlanta’s Derez De’Shon Debuts at #8!
Derez De’Shon already has the seal of approval from Cash Money CEO Birdman. The Rich Gang rapper signed with Cash Money Records and his single “Hardaway” has people taking notice, including Birdman himself who released “Heart Away,” a remix of the song featuring Toni Braxton, earlier this month. Derez De’Shon was also featured on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 list this week and saw a 125% increase in Instagram followers and a 25% increase in artist station adds.
