On Nov. 1, 1894, Billboard published its first issue … one that's vastly different from today's magazine (and Billboard's expanded platforms).

Billboard offers another triple play of tracks to check out that all debuted on this week’s Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart. Be sure to give a listen to Mystery Skulls, Lion Babe & Zella Day.
Iggy Azalea makes notable social gains on Billboard’s charts after her appearance on NBC's Saturday Night Live (Oct. 25), on which she debuted two new songs, "Beg for It" (featuring MØ) and "Iggy SZN."
