Plus, NLE Choppa returns to No. 1 for a record 15th week on top.

Mexican singer-songwriter Natanael Cano debuts at No. 34 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated Jan. 18), thanks to four breakout singles on the Hot Latin Songs survey.

In its 11th charting week, Cano's "Soy El Diablo," with Bad Bunny, ranks at No. 26 on Hot Latin Songs (after peaking at No. 16 in November); "Disfruto Lo Malo" follows at No. 29 (after reaching No. 25 in December); "Ella," featuring Junior H, places at No. 44 (a new peak); and "Amor Tumbado" debuts at No. 45.

Meanwhile, Cano's debut LP Corridos Tumbados ranks at No. 5 on Top Latin Albums with 4,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, after reaching No. 4 in November.

NLE Choppa returns to No. 1 on Emerging Artists for a 15th total week on top, fueled by his single "Camelot," at No. 72 on the Billboard Hot 100. He surpasses Lauv for the most weeks spent at the summit, dating to the list's September 2017 launch.

Elsewhere on Emerging Artists, John K debuts at No. 45, powered by his single "If We Never Met," which ranks at No. 14 on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart (after reaching No. 13 in December).

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 the 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.
