Plus, the late Mac Miller hits a new high at No. 3.

Eminem re-enters the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Feb. 1) at No. 1 to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a fourth total week.

The reign is largely courtesy of his new album Music to Be Murdered By, which debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 279,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Eminem earns his 10th No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming just the sixth act in history to reach that total, after The Beatles (19 No. 1s), Jay-Z (14), Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand (11 each) and Elvis Presley (10). Eminem also adds his record 10th No. 1 debut in a row, breaking a tie with Kanye West.

Eminem last led the Artist 100 dated Oct. 6, 2018, three weeks after his previous album, Kamikaze, launched atop the Billboard 200.

Rounding out the Artist 100's top five, Halsey vaults 12-2 as her new LP Manic debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200; Mac Miller jumps 33-3, hitting a new high, as his posthumous album Circles arrives at No. 3 on the Billboard 200; Roddy Ricch dips 2-4; and Post Malone falls 3-5.

The Artist 100, which launched in 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.
