Tomorrow's Hits: Post Malone, Jarryd James & Claire Rasa
Each Friday, Billboard presents Tomorrow's Hits, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success.
Los Angeles rapper Post Malone arrives at No. 47 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with his debut single, "White Iverson" (Republic). The song has built buzz after being released in February, with 26 million global streams totaled to date on his SoundCloud page. "Iverson" drew 1.1 million domestic clicks and sold 9,000 downloads in the week ending Aug. 20, according to Nielsen Music. The talented artist is also a singer and self-taught guitar player. –Amaya Mendizabal (@Amayayayaya)
Australian singer-songwriter Jarryd James is bubbling under Adult Alternative Songs with his moody and melodic debut single "Do You Remember" (Interscope). Fueled by the rise of the song, which James co-wrote and co-produced with Joel Little (Lorde), and which hit No. 1 on the Australia Digital Songs chart in April, he has tour dates lined up this fall with Tove Lo. James previously supported Broods on tour in late 2014. –Gary Trust (@gthot20)
Claire Rasa nears the Dance Club Songs chart with the perky "All I Wanted." It's the first single for the guitar- and piano-playing Australian teen, who recently signed to Sony subsidiary BMAB (Blow Me a Bubble) Records. Remixed lyric videos from Dave Aude and Razor N Guido have been serviced to DJs (at clubs with video screens, a growing trend), along with remixes from Radikal Twinz and Silvio Carrano. –Gordon Murray (@GordonJMurray)
