Jessie Reyez, Lil Mosey & Big Red Machine Debut on Emerging Artists Chart

Canadian singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez debuts at No. 23 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated Sept. 15), as she scores her first two entries on the Billboard Hot 100, with the help of Eminem.

Canadian singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez debuts at No. 23 on Billboard‘s Emerging Artists chart (dated Sept. 15), as she scores her first two entries on the Billboard Hot 100, with the help of Eminem.

Eminem’s “Nice Guy,” on which Reyez is co-billed, starts at No. 65 on the Hot 100, while “Good Guy,” on which she’s featured, debuts at No. 67. The songs bow with 11.3 million and 11.1 million U.S. streams, respectively, according to Nielsen Music.


The Emerging Artists chart ranks the most popular developing artists of the week, using the same formula as the all-encompassing Billboard Artist 100, which measures artist activity across multiple Billboard charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard 200 and the Social 50. (The Artist 100 lists the most popular acts, overall, each week.) However, the Emerging Artists chart excludes acts that have notched a top 25 entry on either the Hot 100 or Billboard 200, as well as artists that have achieved two or more top 10s on Billboard‘s “Hot” song genre charts and/or consumption-based “Top” album genre rankings.

Meanwhile, Lauv continues his Emerging Artists domination, as he reigns for an 11th total week. His breakout single “I Like Me Better” stands at No. 33 on the Hot 100 (after reaching No. 27 a week earlier).

Rounding out the Emerging Artists top five, lovelytheband rises 3-2; Bryce Vine climbs 4-3; Louis Tomlinson dips 2-4; and Queen Naija holds at No. 5.

At No. 24 on Emerging Artists, Big Red Machine makes its Billboard chart debut, as the duo’s first self-titled LP arrives at No. 8 on Americana/Folk Albums with 5,000 equivalent album units earned. The pair, consisting of Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon and The National’s Aaron Dessner, formed earlier this year.

Plus, 16-year-old Seattle rapper Lil Mosey debuts at No. 46 on Emerging Artists, as his track “Noticed” gains by 14 percent to 6.6 million U.S. streams, powered by its Cole Bennett-directed music video.
