On Fridays, Billboard presents Tomorrow's Hits, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success.

Ruth B
Ruth B got a head-start on what's likely to be a busy 2016 with the release of her debut EP The Intro (Columbia), which entered the Dec. 19 Heatseekers Albums chart at No. 4. Now, the 20-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter, who boasts nearly 2 million followers on Vine, is in promo mode: Single "Lost Boy" is at radio and she'll play shows beginning in February. –Gary Trust (@gthot20)

99 Souls
99 Souls' mash-up "The Girl Is Mine" (Resilience/Columbia), bubbling under Dance Club Songs and at No. 15 on the Official UK Singles chart, sports a pair of high-profile guests: Destiny's Child and Brandy. The single blends a sample of the former's "Girl" with newly sung vocals from the latter, who reprises her role in her 1998 Monica duet (and 13-week Billboard Hot 100 No. 1) "The Boy Is Mine." –Keith Caulfield (@keith_caulfield)

Andrew Watt
After breaking through as guitarist of hard rock supergroup California Breed, newly solo Andrew Watt scores his first chart hit with "Ghost in My Head" (John Varvatos/Republic), which rises 39-36 on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart. Watt's EP of the same name, released in October, continues his collaborative ways, as it features Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith on drums. –Kevin Rutherford (@surfwax83)
