Bea Miller
Fifteen-year-old Bea Miller bubbles under the Adult Pop Songs chart with the pure-pop “Young Blood,” her debut single on Syco/Hollywood (marking the imprint and label’s first pairing). The song’s rise follows her 2012 breakout on the second season of Fox’s since-shuttered The X Factor, on which she placed ninth. The clip for the song, which serves as the title track to her debut EP, has drawn 650,000 YouTube views since its late July premiere. Next up: Miller opens five October dates for labelmate Demi Lovato on the latter’s Demi World Tour. –Gary Trust (@gthot20)

Jackie Lee
Jackie Lee arrives at No. 57 on Country Airplay with “She Does,” his debut single for Broken Bow. The 22-year-old from Maryville, Tenn., is working on his first album with veteran producer Carson Chamberlain (Keith Whitley, Easton Corbin, Billy Currington). The soulful Lee cites a diverse set of vocal influences, including Whitley, Faron Young, Michael McDonald, Bob Seger and Justin Timberlake. –Wade Jessen

Sofia Reyes
Sofia Reyes, 18, bubbles under Latin Pop Songs with her vibrant bilingual single “Muevelo,” featuring Wisin. The Mexican-born Reyes recently signed with Prince Royce’s D’Leon imprint (under Warner Latin Music) as its inaugural act and is currently supporting the bachata superstar on tour. The song’s lyric video has drawn nearly 200,000 worldwide YouTube views in its first month. “I wanted to deliver a fun and fresh bilingual song that will make everybody move to the beats and rhythm that my fans and I enjoy,” Reyes beams. “Plus, Wisin definitely adds his signature touch of urban and Latin pop to the song.” –Amaya Mendizabal (@Amayayayaya)
