Yella Beezy Moves Up Six
Yella Beezy dropped his latest mixtape Lite Work, Vol. 2 at the end of last year and has been creating a buzz ever since. The Dallas rapper moves up six spots on our list of Trendsetters with his breakout hit “One Up,” featuring a collaboration with former Trendsetter Lil Baby, gaining major traction. This sparked significant audience growth for Yella Beezy, including over 4,000 artist station adds.
Tiny Desk, Big Break
Self-proclaimed “sadboi hip-hop” rapper Hobo Johnson experienced first-hand the major effects a performance on Tiny Desk can have on an artist’s career - without even appearing on Tiny Desk! Instead, his submission video has gone viral and he has been seeing huge lifts on social media and Pandora. Hobo Johnson makes his Trendsetters debut at #6 with over 5,400 weekly artist station adds.
