Tomorrow's Hits: Zara Larsson, DLow & The Score
Each Friday, Billboard presents Tomorrow's Hits, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success.
Swedish singer Zara Larsson's "Lush Life" (Epic) bubbles under the Pop Songs airplay chart, while surging by 12 percent to 917,000 U.S. streams in the week ending Nov. 5, according to Nielsen Music. Larsson, who won the 2008 season of Sweden's Got Talent, is also scaling Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "Never Forget You" (with MNEK), which hits the Nov. 21 Official U.K. Singles chart's top 10. –Keith Caulfield (@keith_caulfield)
Following prior step-by-step viral hits in 2015 (by Silento, iLoveMemphis and others), DLow's "Bet You Can't Do It Like Me" (Capitol) continues the trend, as 2 million U.S. streams in the tracking week help the cut enter Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at No. 44. A choreographer himself, DLow sets the challenge in the dance/rap track to "hit the quan," "nae nae" and "twerk," among other moves. –Amaya Mendizabal (@Amayayayaya)
The Score nears the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart with "Oh My Love" (Republic). The song from the Los Angeles-based pop duo (via New York) of Eddie Anthony (vocals, guitar) and Edan Dover (keyboards, production) first drew attention – and heavy Shazaming – thanks to a synch in ads for British supermarket chain Asda earlier in 2015.The single is from the pair's EP Where Do You Run, released in September. –Gary Trust (@gthot20)
