Last week, NCT 127 rose to #3 on the Billboard Emerging Artists chart.

This week, the group improves to #1 on the listing.

The ascent to #1 comes as NCT 127’s “Regulate – The 1st Album Repackage” celebrates its first full week in the market.

NCT 127 is celebrating its first appearance atop the chart, which ranks the top artists in America who have yet to score major hits on key Billboard album or sales charts. Like the Artist 100, it positions songs based on factors like album sales, song consumption and social media activity.

lovelytheband holds at #2 on this week’s listing, while Jimmie Allen ticks up one place to #3.

Flipp Dinero climbs two places to #4, and Lauv holds at #5.

Mitchell Tenpenny (#6, +1), Rita Ora (#7, +28), Dean Lewis (#8, +1), Louis Tomlinson (#9, +13) and Queen Naija (#10, =) complete the Top 10.

— Billie Eilish, who ruled the past listing, is apparently no longer eligible for Emerging Artists.
