This week’s Trendsetters Chart is full of both new and familiar faces! Highlights include newcomer and rising rapper YBN NAHMIR, who makes his premiere in the Top 5, as well as the country quintet LANCO who have been steadily climbing up the chart for the past few months. Take a listen to these Trendsetters on Pandora today!
YBN NAHMIR Makes an Impressive Debut at #4!
It was only a few months ago that YBN NAHMIR shared his breakout hit “Rubbin Off The Paint” on Worldstar Hip Hop, a move that catapulted the 18-year-old to viral success. The video has over 86 million views on YouTube and the buzz led to a co-sign from Chris Brown as well as a remix of the song from Vince Staples. This is an impressive feat for the Birmingham teen who now has multiple record labels fighting to sign him and a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Move over Worldstar, YBN NAHMIR will soon be taking the whole world by storm!
LANCO Soars to #9 with Hallelujah Nights
LANCO is no stranger to our Trendsetters Chart. This is the 22nd straight week that the Tennessee-based country band has appeared on the chart. However, the release of their long-awaited first album Hallelujah Nights this month bumped them up five spots, bringing them into the Top 10. Hallelujah Nights also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Albums Chart, a accomplishment that hasn’t been achieved since Lady Antebellum released their debut album back in 2008. This buzz helped them see a 33% lift in artist station adds just in this past week!
