Ultimate 100 Artists

The Top 5 remain the same this week:

Ariana Grande moves #19-6 with the release of her Dangerous Woman LP; she will likely crack the Top 5 next week

Rapper Desiigner continues to grow, up #12-7, but can he break into the superstar pack at the very top of the chart?

Nick Jonas is a Big Mover from #74-42, led by airplay and social activity

I Still Do, the new release from Slowhand, brings Eric Clapton into the Top 100 at #63

Adam Wakefield is doing well with The Voice fans as sales of his performances lead to his Debut at #65

The release of Cloud Nine has now given tropical house producer/DJ Kygo a Debut at #71

Award show wins and a contestant cover on The Voice boost Romeo Santos to #72 this week

Legendary Mexican singer Marco Antonio Solís was been pretty warm lately, re-enters at #75

Coloradans OneRepublic return to the Top 100 at #81 as their new single, Wherever I Go, makes its way to fans

Enrique Iglesias is back in the Top 100 at #83 after almost exactly 1 year, while moving up 3 to #3 on Ultimate Latin Artists

Demi Lovato keeps enough going on, including a Country collab with Brad Paisley, for a #89 re-entry

O.T. Genasis quickly proving that he’s no one-hit-wonder as he is back in the Top 100 at #91 this week as Cut It (ft. Young Dolph) is up to #28 on Ultimate 100 Songs

Ultimate 100 Songs

Justin Timberlake’s Trolls track, Can’t Stop the Feeling!, holds #1 for a 2nd consecutive week

Desiigner continues to see his debut song, Panda, compete with the biggest stars in the world as it inches up #3-2

Drake One Dance (ft. Wizkid & Kyla) is #3 while Hype is a Big Mover up 26 to #43 and Still Here Debuts at #86

The Chainsmokers Don’t Let Me Down (ft. Daya) holds #4 again here and #1 on Ultimate EDM Songs

Florida Georgia Line H.O.L.Y. remains at #5 while holding #1 Ultimate Country Songs for another week

Close (ft. Tove Lo) from Nick Jonas is up #30-14…can it run for the Top 10?

It is clear that the culmination of the latest season of The Voice is upon us:

The Running Man Challenge hasn’t slowed down and neither has Ghost Town DJs My Boo which is now up to #18

Emerging Artist watch continues:

Wicked from Atlanta trapster and Dungeon Family member Future barely misses Big Mover status with a 19-spot gain to #42

OneRepublic’s new single, Wherever I Go, Debuts #70 and is sure to move up

Former Emerging Artist Post Malone’s breakout jam, White Iverson, has renewed vigor as a Big Mover up #99-78

Emerging Artist

Bay Area raised, Los Angeles-based singer/rapper Marc E. Bassy (Debut #24) has been putting out solid tracks and impressive collaborations for a couple of years now, including last year’s East Hollywood EP.

Prior to that he had some success across a solid 10-year run with the group 2AM Club on RCA records. His solo activity flared on our early warning radar this winter while he toured in support of G-Eazy. With the newly-dropped You & Me (ft. G-Eazy) having a very summery, reggae-influenced groove and being worked by Republic Records, it is a good bet that this will be his year.
