Lil Uzi Vert vaults from No. 28 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated March 21) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time.

The rapper leads the ranking thanks to his sophomore album Eternal Atake, which blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 288,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, opening with the biggest streaming week since Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V in 2018.

Uzi also lands 20 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, including all 18 from the album, and becomes just the third act ever to land that many songs on the Hot 100 at once. Three of those 20 tracks debut in the top 10: "Baby Pluto" (No. 6), "Lo Mein" (No. 8) and "Silly Watch" (No. 9).

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.

NCT 127 re-enters the Artist 100 at No. 2, a new peak, thanks to the K-pop group's new album NCT #126: Neo Zone, The 2nd Album, which opens at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 with 87,000 units.

Dixie Chicks debut at No. 74 on the Artist 100, as "Gaslighter," the lead single and title track from their first album in 14 years (due May 1), jumps 31-20 on the Hot Country Songs chart.

Plus, Mandy Moore enters the Artist 100 at No. 90, as her album Silver Landings arrives at No. 17 on Top Album Sales (6,000 sold) and No. 134 on the Billboard 200 (7,000 units).
