Billboard is a renowned music chart that tracks the popularity of songs and albums across various genres. While established artists aim for the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200, up-and-coming talents often start their journey on genre-specific lists. In this article, we will explore two artists who have recently made their debut on the Billboard charts.

Kenya Grace

Kenya Grace, a talented British singer-songwriter, has made her Billboard chart debut with her breakthrough song "Strangers." Released on September 1 via KGJ/Major Recordings/Warner Records, the track has already gained significant traction. It debuted at No. 5 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, accumulating 3.3 million streams and selling 1,000 downloads in its opening week in the United States.

"Strangers" also secured the No. 4 spot on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart, No. 20 on the Hot 100's Bubbling Under ranking, No. 56 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, and No. 79 on the Billboard Global 200. In Kenya Grace's home country, the song entered the Official UK Singles chart at No. 20.

TikTok, a popular social media platform, played a significant role in the song's success. More than 200,000 TikTok clips have featured a portion of the song's audio, including one on Kenya Grace's profile that has garnered over 12 million views. It's worth noting that TikTok's influence is not directly reflected in Billboard's charts.
