Trevor Daniel is an American singer and songwriter and has been making music since 2017. But during those days, he wasn’t that mainstream, and his songs didn’t get much attention. In 2019, he gained immense popularity with the song “Falling”, which was originally released back in 2018. “Falling” was the song from his first studio album, Nicotine.

The song soon started to get popular on Tiktok after some users used it in their videos. Although there is no certain type of video theme for the song, it became popular as a lot of users started to use it in their videos.

“Falling” finally peaked at number 17 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart making it his first song to do so, and that too after 2 years of its release. Today, Daniel has collaborated with top artists of this generation like Selena Gomez, Julia Michaels, Tainy, Bebe Rexha, Becky G, etc.


Arshia Fattahi, known professionally by his stage name, Curtis Waters, is a Nepali-Canadian singer and songwriter, who gained overnight popularity with the song “Stunnin”, and he is just 21 at this time.

Originally born in Kathmandu, Nepal, Waters moved to India and Germany, and finally settled in Canada. His stage name is derived from two of his favorite artists: Ian Curtis and Frank Ocean.

Waters became popular overnight when his song “Stunnin” went viral on TikTok, and started a trend called #whatidwear . In the video, people show different fashion styles with every verse of the song. It became so popular that even the popular Disney star, Debby Ryan, recreated some of her most iconic outfits in this song. That video has over 26 Million likes, and like this Curtis Waters came to limelight.


Although Conan Gray started his career as a teenager by making vlogs, covering songs and also uploading some of his originals, his biggest break came in 2020 when he released the song, “Heather”, which became a huge summer hit of 2020. The song was from his album, Kid Krow.

The lyrics of the song tells a story where he used to love a boy, but that boy loves a girl named Heather, and he expresses both his jealousy and appreciation towards her, and wishes that he was Heather. The song got popularity on TikTok when people started to make videos defining a perfect beauty in a meme-like format.

“Heather” even peaked at number 47 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and even a legendary singer, Sir Elton John, praised the song saying, “There’s a boy called Conan Gray who has a song called ‘Heather’ and he’s about 22, he’s from America and he’s the only person in the [streaming chart] to actually write the song without anybody else. Everybody else there’s four or five writers on [a track]. You look at most of the records in the charts – they’re not real songs. They’re bits and pieces and it’s nice to hear someone write a proper song.”
