On Fridays, Billboard presents Emerging Artists of the Week, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way upward on the Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart.

Dua Lipa, "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)"

The 21-year-old's new single debuts at No. 3 on the latest Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart (dated Sept. 10). The English singer has notched three prior entries on the chart in 2016: "Last Dance," which peaked at No. 4 on the chart dated March 5; "Be the One," her first No. 1 (May 7); and "Hotter Than Hell" (No. 2, May 21).

Amine, Big Gigantic & Eden: Emerging Artists of the Week

"Hotter Than Hell" holds at No. 13 and "Be the One" lifts 15-14 on the Sept. 10 chart.

Dua Lipa's self-titled debut album is due Feb. 10, 2017.

Belly featuring Kehlani, "You"

Palestinian-Canadian rapper Belly teamed with American R&B/pop songstress Kehlani, and their collab re-enters the Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart at No. 6. The song debuted at No. 21 on July 30 and peaked at No. 4 the following week.

"You" missed the chart dated Sept. 3, but thanks to buzz generated from the song's music video release on Aug. 26, it returns in the top 10. The video has raced to nearly 150,000 global views on YouTube (through Sept. 2).

"You" is featured on Belly's ninth mixtape, Another Day in Paradise, released July 15.

Lost Frequencies featuring Janieck Devy, "Reality"

Belgian DJ/producer Felix de Laet, known on stage as Lost Frequencies, climbs 21-12 on the Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart with "Reality," which features singer Janieck Devy. The song first appeared on the chart back in January and peaked at No. 5 in February and again in June.

"Reality" has found success in Europe since its release in 2015, hitting No. 1 on charts in Norway, Portugal, Austria and Germany, among others. Its video has drawn more than 125 million global views on YouTube since its release in May 2015.
