Always eager to shine a light on emerging talent, TGJ welcomes to you to The Stream Scene.
Here, we throw eyes on moves made by rising artists on Spotify as they make commendable waves in the industry’s ever-changing ocean of acts.
Dominating the scene this time around?
Louis York, Luke James, Lyrica Anderson and the British act Daecolm.
Powered by his role in ‘The New Edition’ biopic and his popularity within R&B circles, Luke James finds himself faring very well on Spotify this year.
His latest success story? The 3 million spins garnered by his breakout cut ‘I Want You.’
The release leads the way on all fronts for the singer’s self-titled set (released in 2014) and cruises towards the 3.5 million point as his latest single ‘Drip’ sails past the 200,000 plays mark following its release on August 18th.
How Louis York is doing?
The soulfully eclectic duo have reason to rejoice today as streams garnered by their most popular songs on Spotify crossed the 1 million mark at midnight.
Powered by a fan base enamoured by their material and the songs they created for the likes of Rihanna, Mya and Bruno Mars, the pair’s highest-played bops reached the 1,134,335 mark when totalled.
The pair’s highest-moving cut in the Spotiverse is ‘Clair Huxtable‘ which now stands just days away from crossing the half a million streams barrier.
When Daecolm isn’t putting pen to paper for Chris Brown and Rihanna he can be found scorching Spotify with his R&B-tinged remix of ABBA‘s classic ‘Dancing Queen.’
The vocalist’s fresh take on the Pop standard has been streamed 2.5 million times since June 30th 2017 while his original release ‘Jungle’ shows signs of growth with numbers slightly north of 240,000 spins!
Its number when streams from all platforms are thrown into his mix? 24 million.
Last, but certainly not least come moves made by Lyrica Anderson.
