Malone adds his 9th week at No. 1.

Post Malone tallies his ninth total week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Oct. 12) to remain the top musical act in the U.S. His new LP, Hollywood's Bleeding, ranks to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 124,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, after logging its first three weeks on the chart at No. 1.

Malone's reign is also aided by 11 entries on the Billboard Hot 100, led by two in the top 10: "Circles," at No. 7, and "Goodbyes," featuring Young Thug, at No. 9.

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.

DaBaby vaults 17-2 on the Artist 100, reaching a new peak on the strength of his album Kirk, which dethrones Hollywood's Bleeding atop the Billboard 200, opening with 145,000 units, marking his first No. 1. He also lands 18 entries on the Hot 100, including all 13 from Kirk.

Plus, The Beatles surge 58-3 on the Artist 100, as Abbey Road blasts 71-3 on the Billboard 200, up 803% to 81,000 units, thanks to a reissue commemorating the classic set's 50th anniversary.

Rounding out the Artist 100's top five, Billie Eilish rises 6-4 and Lizzo dips 4-5.
