Hot Hitmakers: Alessia Caracciolo and the Ayo & Teo Brothers Make Their Debut

May 10, 2017

While Kendrick Lamar retains his position as the top songwriter of the week, several tracks from DAMN slipped in the Hot 100 rankings... and along with them so did several DAMN co-writers. 

That created room for a few newcomers. Canadian singer-songwriter Alessia Cara (aka Alessia

Caracciolo) debuts at No. 16 largely thanks to the surge in the charts of her collaboration with EDM producer Zedd on "Stay."

Also new to the chart are YouTube viral breakout stars Ayo & Teo (Ayleo and Mateo Bowles). The brothers gained their following posting videos of themselves dancing to hits of others, and now have one of their own with "Rolex."
