This week on Uncharted, German electro house artist Zedd debuts at No. 33, with a gain of 19,000 SoundCloud plays. His original mix of "Dovregubben," released digitally on May 31, is among the top 10 downloads at Beatport-a popular digital music store for DJs. Throughout the summer, the artist is playing various dates across the United States.
Popular YouTube comedian and musician Dave Days rises from No. 22 to No. 10 after premiering a cover of Selena Gomez's single "Who Says" on May 31. The humorous video which shows the singer chasing a cardboard cutout of his oft-used crush Hannah Montana around town via skateboard has since garnered 563,000 YouTube views. At present, Dave Days boasts an impressive 1.4 million YouTube channel subscribers and shows no sign of slowing down.
Uncharted ranks artists - those who have not charted previously with Billboard - using a formula blending weekly additions of friends/fans/followers across the world's leading social networking sites (MySpace, Twitter, Facebook), as well as weekly artist page views and weekly song plays on influential music outlets (YouTube, Last.FM, SoundCloud).
