Emerging Artist

Bentonville, Arkansas native Jake Hagood’s name wasn’t initially connected to his stage name, Who is Fancy, that we see make an attention-getting #2 Debut on this week’s Emerging Artists chart. Signed in conjunction with modern music industry powerhouses Scooter Braun, Scott Borchetta, and Dr. Luke it seems like success is the only foreseeable outcome here. First on our radar earlier this year when his single Goodbye was launched while keeping the artist’s true identity a secret until a performance on The Tonight Show in April. With the debut of Boys Like You (ft. Meghan Trainor and Ariana Grande) it feels like Fancy won’t be Emerging for long. He toured as an opener for both superstars and performed his song with them recently on Dancing with the Stars.
