Plus, Ingrid Andress returns to No. 1.

Pop singer-songwriter Jeremy Zucker debuts at No. 7 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated May 2), thanks to his debut studio album Love Is Not Dying.

The set, released on Republic Records, debuts at No. 23 on the Album Sales chart with 3,000 copies sold (and drew 11,000 equivalent album units in its first week), according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Zucker appeared on Billboard's charts once before: "Come Thru" reached No. 39 on the Pop Songs airplay chart a year ago this month.

Atop the Emerging Artists chart, Ingrid Andress returns for a third total week at No. 1, thanks to her single "More Hearts Than Mine," which hits news highs on Country Airplay at No. 3 and the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 30.

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.

Elsewhere, Iann Dior debuts at No. 41 on Emerging Artists, as his new single "Sick and Tired," featuring Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker, launches at No. 3 on the Hot Rock Songs chart, driven by 4.5 million first-week U.S. streams. The track marks Dior's first appearance on a Billboard songs chart, after the 21-year-old's debut LP Industry Plant bowed and peaked at No. 27 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums in November.

Plus, singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama makes her first Billboard chart arrival, opening at No. 44 on Emerging Artists, as her debut studio album Sawayama opens at No. 6 on Heatseekers Albums with 4,000 units.
