This week the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart sees some heavy diversity with Tim Hicks, Galantis, J.R. Donato and Skyzoo rounding out the top four spots.

In at number one is Tim Hicks and his track "Here Comes the Thunder." Hicks is one of the few country artists that manage to break into the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart but does so in a booming fashion.

"Here Comes the Thunder" uses an in your face country sound with the "Have a Nice Day" style of music that Bon Jovi turned to in 2005.

Hicks is an budding country artist with a bright future and his new song proves that as it sits on the top spot at the moment.

Galantis continues their strong run on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart sitting at number two with "Runaway." The track has peaked at number one previously and like Years and Years who aren't featured this week, Galantis' "Runaway" has been atop the list for a few weeks now.

The EDM charged track is a high energy and a fan favorite among dance lovers.

For a blast of Hip-Hop, J.R. Donato's "I Suppose" is gracing the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart at number three. Donato's track is smooth but still maintains the bouncing sound that fans can vibe to.

Featured in the music video for the song is rapper Wiz Khalifa doing what he does best by smoking some green.

Donato is making his way up the Taylor Gang ranks thanks to catchy songs like "I Suppose" and the future looks bright for this emerging artist.

Rounding out the top four is Skyzoo and his track "Suicide Doors." The track is a lyrically onslaught by an upcoming rapper who clearly believes in his talent. The song contains a series of complex lyrics that will have your head buzzing trying to put them all together.

The beat is classic with a note of Jazz here and there.

Skyzoo appears to be one of the bright new Hip-Hop talents that is really emerging into something great.

If you listen all the way through there is a scratched up sample of Kanye West's "Can't Tell Me Nothing," a very fitting piece to this track.
