This week we introduce two fresh faces to our Trendsetters Chart! Viral artist Layton Greene and emerging rap collective Shoreline Mafia both make their debut on our list. Take a listen to these young trendsetting artists on Pandora today!
Layton Greene Rolls in at #7!
When 19-year-old Layton Greene uploaded her cover of Kodak Black’s “Roll in Peace,” she never anticipated that the short clip would go viral and launch her into a full-time career in music. In just two short months, the Illinois-native’s version of the song has racked up almost 10 million plays on SoundCloud and the song has earned a spot at #12 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart. With over 5,000 artist station adds in one week and her rendition of “Roll in Peace” approaching 600,000 weekly spins on Pandora, Layton Greene’s career is certainly off to a promising start!
Shoreline Mafia Brings the West Coast Rap
The Los Angeles-based rap group Shoreline Mafia dropped their first full-length mixtape, ShorelineDoThatShit, last November and have been on the rise ever since! Their breakout hit “Musty” has been contributing to the group’s strong performance on Pandora, leading to around 3,800 artist stations adds and almost 750 track station adds each week. Although Shoreline Mafia’s fanbase is currently concentrated in Los Angeles, the group’s unique take on west coast hip hop has them earning fans all along the shoreline!
