(Artist Positions May Change)

In at the number one spot on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart is PVRIS and their song "My House" off of their "White Noise" album that really propelled them into a larger fan following. PVRIS's eerie, electronic and rock blend has created a very unique sound that just down right works, so it's not at all surprising that they are back on top once again.

They've also released a few dark and Poltergeist inspired music videos that add to their haunting lyrics and overall identity.

"White Noise" was an incredible debut from the band which will only leave fans wanting more. Check out their music video for "My House" below.

Toronto native Tory Lanez takes the number two spot with his track "Say It." Lanez is yet another combo act from Canada and while he hasn't reached the Drake status yet, Lanez has generated a dedicated fanbase with his impressive R&B and hip-hop styling. "Say It" takes on more of a love song style which details taking a relationship slow and making a good first impression on a lady.

It's smooth and reminiscent of early Chris Brown work. You can check out the Tory Lanez "Say It" music video below.

We've said almost everything we could say about Alessia Cara's incredible voice and her amazing single "Here" which lands her the number three spot on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart. Cara is not stranger to the chart having been steadily in the top five since her single "Here" broke her into the spotlight.

Cara made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform the hit but has been wowing crowds prior to that.

Her music is very genuine and so is her personality which shines in each of her radio and YouTube interviews. You can check out the music video for "Here" below.

The funky sounds of Thundercat finds it's way to the number four spot on the charts with "Them Changes." "Them Changes" like every track in today's top five has peaked at number one previously, showing that funk/disco sounds can still make a big impact on music today. The track is silky smooth and features an unorthodox music video filled with Samurai action.

"Them Changes" is a featured track off the "The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam" six track EP. You can check out the "Them Changes" music video below.

Rounding out the top five is Felix Jaehn and his track "Ain't Nobdy (Loves Me Better)," featuring the incredible Jasmine Thompson. Jaehn really hit it big on his remix of Omi's "Cheerleader" and has since kept his foot on the pedal with this rendition of the Chaka Khan classic.

Thompson's soft and haunting voice actually takes on a breathtaking tone on the tropical sounding EDM backdrop.

It's a great dance song to end your summer with Jaehn's masterful arrangement. Check out the music video for "Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)" below.
