Plus, country newcomer Tenille Arts debuts.
English singer-songwriter Dodie re-enters Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated Feb. 2) at No. 3, a new peak, as her third EP Human debuts at No. 2 on Americana/Folk Albums and No. 82 on the Billboard 200.
The set arrives with 9,000 equivalent album units earned, according to Nielsen Music. With 7,000 from traditional album sales, helping it concurrently arrive at No. 1 on the Americana/Folk Album Sales ranking. Dodie's previous EPs, 2017's You and 2016's Intertwined, reached Nos. 55 and 153 on the Billboard 200, respectively.
Dodie (full name: Dorothy Clark) is a popular YouTuber with over 1.7 million subscribers. She also debuts at No. 82 on the Billboard Artist 100.
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.
Ava Max logs her second week at No. 1 on the Emerging Artists chart, powered by her breakthrough single "Sweet But Psycho," which hits a new peak at No. 35 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track continues to scale the Pop Songs airplay chart, rising 24-23.
Rounding out the Emerging Artists chart's top five, Dean Lewis holds at No. 2, Lauv dips 3-4 and lovelytheband keeps at No. 5.
Plus, Tenille Arts debuts at No. 30, thanks to her single "I Hate This." The track debuts at No. 41 on the Hot Country Songs chart, marking her first entry on the tally, and No. 36 on the all-genre Digital Song Sales survey with 6,000 downloads sold. The Saskatchewan-born singer-songwriter performed the song on ABC's The Bachelor Jan. 21.
