Caamp, Cuco & Burna Boy Debut On Emerging Artists Chart


Plus, NLE Choppa leads for a second week.

Caamp makes its Billboard chart debut, opening at No. 14 on the Emerging Artists chart (dated Aug. 10), thanks to the Columbus, Ohio-based band's sophomore LP By and By.

The set starts at No. 1 on Heatseekers Albums and Americana/Folk Album Sales, with 4,000 sold in traditional album sales among its 6,000 first-week equivalent album units earned, according to Nielsen Music. It also opens at No. 196 on the Billboard 200, while its track "Peach Fuzz" arrives at No. 33 on the Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart.

The Emerging Artists chart ranks the most popular developing artists of the week, using the same formula as the all-encompassing Billboard Artist 100, which measures artist activity across multiple Billboard charts, including theBillboard Hot 100, Billboard 200 and the Social 50. (The Artist 100 lists the most popular acts, overall, each week.) However, the Emerging Artists chart excludes acts that have notched a top 25 entry on either the Hot 100 or Billboard 200, as well as artists that have achieved two or more top 10s on Billboard's "Hot" song genre charts and/or consumption-based "Top" album genre rankings.

NLE Choppa spends a second week at No. 1 on Emerging Artists, as his breakout single "Shotta Flow" holds at its No. 36 high on the Hot 100.

Southern California native Cuco debuts at No. 18 on Emerging Artists, as his debut LP Para Mi starts at No. 6 on Alternative Albums and No. 94 on the Billboard 200 with 8,000 units.

Plus, Nigerian singer-songwriter Burna Boy enters Emerging Artists at No. 49, as his fourth LP, African Giant, bounds 13-6 on World Albums and debuts at No. 104 on the Billboard 200 (8,000 units).
