DeStorm Power Hits Top 10 on Billboard's Social 50 Chart

With newly included metrics from Vine factoring into Billboard's Social 50 chart, Web-grown entertainers/musicians have begun to impact the tally. One of those acts is DeStorm Power, a Los Angeles-based musician and YouTube personality that made his Social 50 debut on the list dated June 27 (the first week Vine and Tumblr metrics were added to list's computation). On the latest chart, Power moves 12-7 to break the Social 50 top 10 for the first time.
