Notable Emerging Artists

18-year-old Canadian Alessia Cara makes her first appearance on the chart following her TV debut…on the Tonight Show no less…and if her single Here (#107 on the main Songs chart) keeps its current pace she may not be emerging for long

Kelsea Ballerini continues to flirt with the top of the chart as her second single, Dibs, is now gaining momentum at Country radio (it just debuted at #40 on the Country Songs chart) so we’ll see how fans respond
