Jen Walsh, the Senior Director of Shazam, Beats 1, and Apple Music, says: “Shazam has always strived to offer artists the discoverability and visibility they’re working so hard to win. This chart takes this approach one step further. It speaks directly to these rising talents, it puts them on the forefront of Apple Music every week, and it tells them that music fans are actively trying to discover their music around the world.”

The chart is available for Apple Music Subscribers to browse and stream to hear the music that is gaining momentum or showing potential. The chart is updated once every week so that it’s always ahead of the curve and up on that latest music trends.
