This week we debut two new Trendsetters just in time for the new year! Take a listen to Sheck Wes and J.I.D on Pandora today!
MORE THAN MO BAMBA
More than a year after its release, Sheck Wes saw his single "Mo Bamba" go viral. The buzz was fueled by its protagonist being drafted by the Orlando Magic, and the club banger stamp-of-approval from Travis Scott and Drake. But Sheck's debut on the Trendsetters chart shows that he's becoming more than a viral hit. The release of his debut full-length Mudboy, as well as a series of high-profile modeling gigs, show the rapper isn't planning on stopping anytime soon.
ATLANTA RAPPER DEBUTS
Atlanta Rapper J.I.D makes his Trendsetters debut after the release of his sophomore LP Dicaprio 2, netting a 25% increase in week-over-week Artist Station Adds. His clear enunciation and speedy delivery - exemplified on lead single "151 Rum" - separate him from many of his peers in the Atlanta scene and instead put him in a similar sonic category to the likes of Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.
