The rock group re-enters at No. 4 after frontman Chester Bennington's death on July 20.
JAY-Z is the top musical act in the U.S. for a second consecutive week on the Billboard Artist 100, thanks largely to his latest album, 4:44, which posts its second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 87,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 20, according to Nielsen Music.
The Artist 100, which launched in July 2014, measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
Album sales contribute the majority of JAY-Z's Artist 100 points (76 percent), followed by streaming (13 percent). JAY-Z became the fifth act to re-enter the tally at No. 1 on last week's Artist 100, following A Tribe Called Quest, Bon Jovi, Prince and The Lumineers.
