Queen Naija Dethrones Lil Skies!
There’s a new #1 Trendsetter this week and it’s Queen Naija! The YouTube vlogger first appeared on our radar a couple of weeks ago and has been on the rise since! With her breakout hit “Medicine,” which is currently #58 on our Top Spins chart, Queen Naija has seeded over 75,000 artist station adds including 23,000 weekly station adds. This month she also gained almost 300,000 Instagram followers. Bow down to the Queen!
Even Elton John Loves Greta Van Fleet!
Greta Van Fleet is no stranger to our list of Trendsetters – this is their 29th week on the list! However, the Michigan-born rockers saw an extra boost this past week thanks to a shoutout from Elton John during a joint performance at an Oscar Party in Los Angeles this past Sunday. The Rocket Man called them “one of the biggest new bands of the year,” adding “They’re amazing, believe me. They blew me away.” This backing resulted in a 90% lift in Instagram followers, a 110% increase in YouTube subscribers week on week, and over 5,200 weekly artist station adds.
