2018 has given us plenty of fresh performers on the horizon, and at Whale Report HQ, we’re all about searching those chart waters for the next big catch before they take over the music world. This week, we peek into the house of a hit that’s still in the top ten on Spotify’s U.S. Viral survey and not going away. However, this is no ordinary house. Of course, we’re talking about the new Pittsburgh duo Social House, Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson, and their Lil Yachty-assisted debut song “Magic In The Hamptons”. The two men have previously written and/or produced for notable artists like Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez and more, and now, their first single is proving to be a winner. With early support on Top 40 radio from format powerhouse Z100 ahead of its impact date in two weeks, and its Viral status (now at #8) in the U.S., “Magic” should magically hit a million plays on Spotify by the end of the week. There’s also interest on Shazam, as the song passes 9,000 tags, with more action likely as the summer goes on. Will the Interscope act and the Quality Control performer pull out a few more magic tricks on the way to the top of the charts? Watch out for these three wizards!
