His track 'Gone Too Soon' broke through on TikTok.
Andrew Jannakos makes his Billboard chart debut, entering the Emerging Artists list (dated Sept. 26) at No. 1 to become the top emerging act in the U.S. for the first time, thanks to his breakout single "Gone Too Soon."
The track opens at No. 12 on the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart, and No. 65 on the Billboard Hot 100, with 2.3 million U.S. streams and 28,000 downloads sold in the week ending Sept. 17, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The latter sum is also good for a No. 1 start on Country Digital Song Sales. As the song was released Sept. 15, it debuts after just three days of availability in the tracking period.
Jannakos performed a blind audition on NBC's The Voice in spring 2019 and has built a robust following on social media. Prior to the new track's release, he posted snippets of it on TikTok, where he has nearly 700,000 followers.
