Future surges from No. 38 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated May 30) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a fourth total week, thanks to his new album High Off Life.

The set debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 153,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, earning Future his seventh leader on the list.

Future last ruled the Artist 100 on March 18, 2017, when his album HNDRXX debuted atop the Billboard 200. He also ruled the week before, when his self-titled album likewise launched atop the Billboard 200. Future made history those weeks by becoming the first and, to date, only artist to achieve back-to-back No. 1 album debuts.

Future's return to No. 1 on the Artist 100 is also aided by his 13 entries on the latest Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. "Life Is Good," featuring Drake, leads at No. 6 (up from No. 13, after previously peaking at No. 2), followed by "Solitaires," featuring Travis Scott, new at No. 32.

Notably, as Future debuts 12 songs on the Hot 100, he ups his career total to 110 entries, the fourth-most in the chart's history, after Drake (222), the Glee Cast (207) and Lil Wayne (168). He also becomes the ninth act with at least 100 career entries.

Among other Artist 100 chart moves, Polo G re-enters at No. 2, a new peak, as his new album, The GOAT, arrives at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 (99,000 units).

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.
