The Billboard Trending 140: July 21-28

Saturday, 2 August 2014

@5SOS nabbed the biggest Billboard Hot 200 debut ever by an Australian band, with a #1 album this week. The band’s songs dominated the Trending 140 this week.

@WizKhalifa’s “Stay Out All Night” was one of the top debuts of the week after a preview on MTV. The constant stream of tweets and Vines from Wiz while out on his “Under the Influence of Music” tour keeps fan anticipation high. His album “Blacc Hollywood” drops August 19.

@NickJonas is back — this time with “Chains,” the first single from his new solo effort. Anticipation for the song shot it to #1 on the Trending 140. Rumor has it Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) collaborates with Nick on another album cut so expect to see him on the Trending 140 plenty this summer.

Star-studded track “Bang Bang” from @JessieJ featuring @ArianaGrande and @NickiMinaj quickly took over the top spot on Tuesday.

Emerging artists shine
@SOPHIEMSMSMSM, who’s trippy-catchy production “Lemonade” racked up 100k Soundcloud plays in 3 days and the top position on the Emerging Chart.

@GorgonCity performed new single “Unmissable@GlobalGathering on Friday and the song rocketed up the Emerging Chart. The indie-electronic darlings issue their debut album “Sirens” on October 6.

Music videos matter
@TroyeSivan’s debut of “Happy Little Pill” got one million views on YouTube in three days and was one of the top Trending 140 debuts of the week.
