Plus, Megan Thee Stallion debuts at No. 17.
Oxford, England-based Foals debut at No. 1 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated March 23), becoming the top emerging act in the U.S. for the first time.
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 Billboard 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.
Foals' debut is powered by their fifth LP, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost, Part 1, which launches at No. 9 on the Top Rock Albums chart with 12,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music. The set marks the group's first top 10 on the ranking, after 2015's What Went Down (No. 11) and 2013's Holy Fire (No. 23).
