Jordan Davis notches his second week atop Emerging Artists, as his debut hit "Singles You Up" holds at its No. 2 and No. 6 highs on Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs, respectively. The track also keeps at its No. 50 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week. "Singles" boasts 46 million radio audience impressions (up 8 percent), 5.9 million streams (up 1 percent) and 12,000 sold (up 12 percent).

Meanwhile, 18-piece K-pop boy band NCT rises 6-4 on Emerging Artists, entering the top five for the first time. The act holds at No. 3 on the Social 50, after its new set NCT 2018 Empathy hit No. 5 on World Albums.
