As her breakthrough hit “Sweet But Psycho” continues to gain traction, Ava Max makes another jump on the Billboard Emerging Artist chart.

She improves to #1 on this week’s edition of the listing.

The Emerging Artists chart ranks the top artists who have yet to score major hits on the key Billboard album or song charts. Like the Artist 100 (on which Ava Max appears at #67), it positions artists based on factors like album sales, song consumption and social media activity.

Ava Max is celebrating an eleventh week on the Emerging Artists chart.

— The aforementioned “Sweet But Psycho” also makes a gain on the Hot 100, rising to a new peak of #36 this week.
