Tomorrow's Hits: Kim Cesarion, Like a Storm & Sonia Leigh
Each Friday, Billboard presents Tomorrow's Hits, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success.
With its daring pick-up line "I'll cover your body with my autograph," Kim Cesarion's "Undressed" (Columbia) is gaining at top 40 radio after becoming a hit in his native Sweden and other European countries last year. Belying the song's lyrics and pop polish, the 24-year-old is a classically trained musician. With 53 plays, "Undressed" ranked as the 15th-most-spun song on Sirius XM's Hits 1 in the week ending Aug. 10, according to Nielsen BDS. –Gary Trust
Like a Storm
Auckland, New Zealand's Like a Storm swell 26-22 on the Mainstream Rock airplay chart with the driving "Love the Way You Hate Me." The hard rock sibling trio -- brothers Chris, Kent and Matt Brooks -- have toured with Creed, Five Finger Death Punch and Korn. Originally released in 2012 on indie Fatal Records, the group's second studio album, Chaos Theory: Part 1, was reissued earlier this year on Warner Bros. –Emily White
Rising singer/songwriter Sonia Leigh is bubbling under Country Airplay with the melodic "Put It in Your Pocket" (Willing to Fly). Not that she hasn't already earned success at the format: after the longtime Atlanta resident moved to Nashville two years ago, she co-wrote Zac Brown Band's No. 1s "Goodbye in Her Eyes" and "Sweet Annie." She's also toured with the group, as well as Jason Mraz and the Marshall Tucker Band. Leigh received a significant career boost when SiriusXM's The Highway added "Pocket" last month; it's played the song approximately 200 times since. –Wade Jessen
