Today's Billboard Emerging Artists Chart gets some serious EDM power with Cashmere Cat, Toro Y Moi, Jack U and James Bay earning the top five spots.

In at number one on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart is Cashmere Cat with his track "Adore" featuring Ariana Grande.

Cat is a Norwegian DJ who has teamed up with Grande to bring fans an R&B and electro mix that is pretty much self explanatory.

It features beautiful strings, acoustic guitars and a whole plethora or musical elements combined with Grande's powerful voice to bring the track alive.

Jack U, the super DJ combination of Diplo and Skrillex have managed to land two tracks off their surprise album titled, "Skrillex And Diplo Present: Jack U" onto the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart. Diplo and Skrillex are by no means Emerging Artists, however, their newly formed super combination is fairly out of left field.

The two tracks, "To U" featuring AlunaGeorge and "Where Are U Now" featuring Justin Bieber, sit at the number two and three spot on the chart and both of them are EDM anthems at their best.

Bieber's contribution is surprisingly tasteful and fitting for the EDM sound that Diplo and Skrillex produced on the album. Both tracks are hard hitting anthems with exceptional production.

To bring things away from the EDM fest that is the top three, Toro Y Moi adds a little diversity with his psychedelic track titled, "Buffalo" that is down to number four after peaking at number two on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart.

The track is soft and will immediately transport you to the 70's, where bell bottoms were cool and "flower power" reigned supreme. It's got a pretty heavy Disco feel but is impressive and joyful to listen to.

Rounding out the top five is musician James Bay and his cover of Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds." Bay is a singer/songwriter out of Hitchin, UK who has amassed an impressive following of over 95,000 Twitter followers and almost 147,000 likes on Facebook. His rendition of "FourFiveSeconnds" lends itself to his soulful voice and impressive guitar skills.

It's pretty true to the original harnessing the intensity of West's verse and Rihanna's voice. The original version of the song is slated to be featured on Rihanna's upcoming album.
