On the Hot 100, "Earfquake" enters as his biggest hit.

Tyler, the Creator re-enters the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated June 1) at No. 1 to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time, as his new LP IGOR debuts as his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 165,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.

The Artist 100 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.

Concurrently, Tyler debuts eight songs from the set on the Billboard Hot 100, led by "Earfquake" at No. 13, marking his highest-charting entry on the tally to date. (Until this week, he'd hit a No. 87 Hot 100 high, with "Who Dat Boy" in 2017.)

DJ Khaled re-enters the Artist 100 at No. 2, as his new album Father of Asahd launches at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, becoming his eighth top 10.

Rounding out the Artist 100's top five, BTS dips to No. 3 after five total weeks on top, Billie Eilish drops 2-4 and Halsey jumps 17-5, as her new single "Nightmare" launches at No. 15 on the Hot 100 with 20.1 million in radio reach, 16.7 million U.S. streams and 42,000 sold.
