Justin Quiles, Brytiago, Greeicy, Mike Bahia, Irie Kingz and Javiera Mena were all added to the Deezer NEXT 2018 roster in the summer. Now, their music is reaching an even wider audience.

The music app's program, which focuses on emerging talent with a special emphasis on Latin artists, includes 12 months of profile development, playlisting and taking part in creative artist marketing campaigns. Deezer NEXT’s mission also includes working closely with each of the artist's teams to record exclusive content, higher playlist placement and curated marketing campaigns to maximize his or her growth and fanbase.

Thanks in part to the marketing initiatives, the Latin artists have seen growth in streams and fans through the digital music platform.

Billboard can exclusively reveal that the Deezer NEXT 2018 artists had a combined increase of 226.8 percent in streams and a 488.48 percent in new fans. Data analyzed revealed that the most popular audiences included countries such as Colombia, Guatemala, Chile and Spain.
