This week the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart gets a proper dose of genre diversity as Denzel Curry, AlunaGeorge, Snakehips and Mick Jenkins grab the top four spots.

The number one spot belongs to Denzel Curry and his track "Flying Nimbus" featuring Lofty305. "Flying Numbus" is a high intensity beat pounding track that also features a lyrical onslaught from both Curry and Lofty305. Curry is an emerging artist that is really shaking up the hip-hop game.

He fuses crafty lyrics with sinister production.

His most recent project is the 32 Zel/ Planet Shrooms album but if you really want to go digging in the archive for some hot tracks you might want to check out the Nostalgia 64 album.

AlunaGeorge takes the second spot on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart with "I'm In Control" featuring Popcaan. AlunaGeorge is know for her EDM/Soca/Reggae fusion that really makes for some pretty intense party music. For "I'm In Control" she enlists the help of Dancehall artist Popcaan to give the track a bit of an island flare.

The song is super catchy and the beat lends itself well to the party scene.

There is no doubt that "I'm In Control" will be a hot track fro the Spring and Summer months but it's certainly warming listeners up this winter. Check out "I'm In Control" by AlunaGeroge featuring Popcaan below.

In at number three is the UK DJ duo of Snakehips and their track "All My Friends" featuring Tinashe and Chance The Rapper. "All My Friends" is an eye-opening track that highlights what many would call an overrated lifestyle of partying and drinking. It's got a nice hip-hop and R&B undertone with some pop and electronic aspects sprinkled in.

The arrangement is pretty amazing and both Tinashe and Chance The Rapper add fresh elements and lyrics that really accentuate the overall sound.

The song is definitely radio so don't be surprised if you hear it in the radio rotation soon. Check out "All My Friends" by Snakehips featuring Tinashe and Chance The Rapper below.

Rounding out the top four is Mick Jenkins and BADBADNOTGOOD's cover of The Sensei Blue's "On The Map." The original version of "On The Map" is pretty smooth but the cover from Mick Jenkins and BADBADNOTGOOD jazzes the song up. Jenkins stated on Twitter that he and BADBADNOTGOOD were jamming in a session and that's how the cover came about.
