Louis just appeared on three of Billboard's charts. He came in at #3 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart, #3 on their Social 50, and #70 on their Artist 100 chart. The Emerging Artists chart ranks the most popular developing artists of the week. The Social 50 ranks the most popular artists on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia and Tumblr. The Artist 100 measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction.
Louis is currently serving as a judge on The X Factor 2018. Louis starts taping the Six Chair Challenge today, August 1. Louis will be assigned his category, which we may find out as soon as today. During the Six Chair Challenge, Louis will fill his six chairs with contestants he likes best as they perform. But, contestants winning seats can be booted from their seat if Louis likes a subsequent performer better. From there, contestants will progress to the live shows. Bootcamp has apparently been dropped for this year. The rumored start date for X Factor to begin airing is Saturday, September 1 on ITV, with the live shows starting in late October and running through early December.
Fans are also awaiting the drop of his debut solo album and looking forward to hearing all the new music he's been working on. You can check out some of the already released tracks as well as some teasers that have been posted here. Check out this behind the scenes video from Miss You.
