The Weeknd becomes the fifth act to reign for double-digit weeks. Plus, The Rolling Stones reach the top five.
The Weeknd is the top musical act in the U.S., spending a 10th total week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Dec. 24). Plus, The Rolling Stones re-enter at a new high of No. 5, thanks to the debut of their new album.
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 (which launched in July 2014) 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.
As The Weeknd remains atop the Artist 100, he joins four other acts that have led the list for at least 10 weeks in the chart’s brief history:
