Lil Baby rises from No. 5 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated June 27) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a second total week, thanks to his latest album My Turn and new single "The Bigger Picture."

My Turn tallies its third week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with 72,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Plus, new standalone song "The Bigger Picture," which addresses the Black Lives Matter movement, debuts at a career-best No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, fueled most heavily by 39.1 million U.S. streams. Lil Baby charts four additional songs on the Hot 100, helping boost his position on the Artist 100, including "We Paid," with 42 Dugg, at No. 27, and "Emotionally Scarred," at No. 37.

Lil Baby first led the Artist 100 in March concurrent with the chart start of My Turn.

Elsewhere on the Artist 100, three acts debut, led by Chloe X Halle at No. 42, as their LP Ungodly Hour opens at No. 16 on the Billboard 200 (24,000 units). Gone West (which includes Colbie Caillat) enters at No. 99, as the group's LP Canyons arrives at No. 28 on Top Country Albums (6,000 units); and veteran saxophonist Boney James bows at No. 100, thanks to his new album Solid, which starts at No. 3 on Jazz Albums (5,000 units).

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.
