The Struts debut at No. 7 on Billboard‘s Emerging Artists chart (dated Nov. 10), as the English rock band’s sophomore album Young & Dangerous arrives at No. 7 on the Alternative Albums chart with 8,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.

The album concurrently opens at No. 13 on the Top Rock Albums chart and No. 102 on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile, the set’s single “Body Talks” hits a new high on the Alternative Songs chart at No. 12, where the band has notched two top 10s: “Could Have Been Me” (No. 5, 2015) and “Kiss This” (No. 8, 2016).

The group’s debut LP, 2016’s Everybody Wants, peaked at No. 12 on Alternative Albums and No. 99 on the Billboard 200.

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.

Billie Eilish returns to No. 1 on Emerging Artists for a second total week on top, as her new single “When the Party’s Over” reaches a new high on the Hot 100, at No. 58. The tune jumps 43-32 on Streaming Songs, as it drew 14.8 million U.S. streams in the first full tracking week after the premiere of its official video.


Rounding out the Emerging Artists chart’s top five, lovelytheband rises 3-2 (after spending three weeks at No. 1), Lauv gains 4-3 (after 14 weeks on top), Jimmie Allen ascends 7-4 and NCT vaults 44-5, as the K-pop act charges 16-4 on the Social 50 chart.

Plus, Yella Beezy bounds to the Emerging Artists top 10 (20-9), as his breakthrough hit “That’s On Me” gains by 33 percent to 11.7 million streams after the Oct. 26 arrival of its new remix featuring 2 Chainz, T.I., Rich the Kid, Jeezy, Boosie Badazz and Trapboy Freddy. The track also hits a new peak on the Hot 100, at No. 62 in its 14th week.
