After debuting on Billboard's Social 50 chart in July, Argentine singer, songwriter and actress Lali has been slowly climbing up the chart. On this week's chart (dated Aug. 20), she reached a new peak, climbing 18-15.

The chart ranks the most popular artists on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia, Tumblr and Vine, so with more than 6 million followers on social media (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook combined), a new album, and selfies with superstars like Maluma, it's no surprise that the Latin pop star has landed a top 20 position on the Social 50 chart.
