These charts include the Social 50, Billboard 200, as well as the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The Emerging Artists chart, however, does not include artists or bands that have managed a place in the top 25, of either the Billboard 200 or the Hot 100 charts. The chart also does not include artists, who have managed at least 2 entries in the top 10 of the ‘Hot’ genre charts and/or ‘Top’ album genre rankings.

Louis Tomlinson of One Direction, has managed to climb 3 places from No. 7 to No. 4, owing to his improved social media presence. Tomlinson has managed No. 4 on the Social 50 chart as well, as he witnessed a 12 percent increase during week.
