Each Friday, Billboard presents "Bubbling Under," a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success. Up this week: B. Smyth, Boy, Del Marquis and Brian Weaver
With his debut single "Leggo," featuring 2 Chainz (Motown/IDJMG), building below Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop and Rhythmic, 19-year-old B. Smyth's buzz keeps growing. The crooner gained early attention on YouTube singing covers of R&B hits, including Frank Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You" and Avant's "Separated." His version of Miguel's "Sure Thing" was posted on worldstarhiphop.com, garnering label attention and boosting the standing of his YouTube channel, which sports 4.6 million views, 1.6 million courtesy of "Leggo."
