Bubbling Under: DJ Cassidy, Chasin' Crazy, Vado

DJ Cassidy Turns the Tables

Veteran New York spinner DJ Cassidy has attracted some A-list friends through the years. Now, they're helping him make his first chart ascent, as "Make the World Go Round" (featuring R. Kelly) scales Adult R&B (19-17). Meanwhile, his "Calling All Hearts," with Robin Thicke and Jessie J, has become a U.K. top 10. The songs will appear on Cassidy's forthcoming debut, "Paradise Royale" (Columbia).

A Country Boy Band?

All-male quintet Chasin' Crazy is being touted as a boy band - that can write, play and sing. Those talents shine on "That's How We Do Summertime," the group's debut country single on indie RPM. The Nashville band - Jimmy James Hunter, Forest Miller, Landon Parker, Creigh Riepe and Travis Fincher - recently played the first iHeartRadio Country Festival in Austin.

Vado Vaults

Harlem rapper Vado nears his airplay chart debut as "My Bae" (featuring Jeremih) approaches Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop. It's Vado's first single on DJ Khaled's We the Best imprint, where he signed in 2013 after a stint on Interscope. Vado initially drew ears on two tracks with Cam'Ron: "Speaking in Tungs" (2010) and "Hey Muma" (No. 84, 2011).
