Staff Writer

TMN now analyses tomorrow’s stars using predictive charts and social data from Spotify, Shazam, Pandora and Next Big Sound.  Each Wednesday Radio Today features the hot new songs gaining momentum acorss all the platforms. These are the Ones the Watch.

Piko-Taro’s YouTube viral hit Pen Pineapple Apple Pen shows no signs of slowing down at all. The song and accompanying dance created by comedian and DJ Kosaka Daimaou may have been covered and parodied thousands of times, but the version by MC Zhang is now sitting strong at #1 on the Australian Spotify Viral chart.

It’s not the only rendition of the track to hit the chart however, with DJ Rikituki’s version (#7) and the original (#10) also in the Top 10.

UK artist Dua Lipa remained steadfast at #1 for another week on Next Big Sound’s Pandora Predictions Chart. Meanwhile, UK funk band Vulfpeck hold onto #2, still raking in the success of their “understaffed and excruciatingly boring” Facebook telethon to promote their new album The Beautiful Game.

Portland rapper Aminé made a jump to #3 from #6 on the Pandora Trendsetters Chart. His debut single Caroline keeps creating waves on the platform where it earned just under 7,500 Artist Station adds last week.
