Drake is the top musical act in the United States, rebounding 2-1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated July 30) for a 16th total week.
The Artist 100 measures artist activity across Billboard’s most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, Top Album Sales and the Social 50. The Artist 100 blends data measuring album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
Notably, Drake leads the Artist 100, Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously for a record-extending ninth total week (having first tripled up on the May 21 charts). Taylor Swift previously dominated the three charts simultaneously for seven weeks (dating to the Artist 100’s July 2014 inception). As previously reported, Drake’s “One Dance” (featuring WizKid and Kyla) spends a 10th week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, while parent album Views likewise logs a 10th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
