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.
BTS again rules the Artist 100 thanks to its first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 "Dynamite," which returns for a third week at the summit. The song drew 20.8 million airplay audience impressions (up 8%) and 14 million U.S. streams (up 11%) and sold 153,000 downloads (up 96%) in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. BTS became the first all-South Korean act to top the Hot 100 upon the song's debut at No. 1.
The track continues to scale the top 40-based Pop Songs airplay chart, rising 16-15 for a new career-best rank for BTS. It's also the group's first entry on Adult Pop Songs, where it holds at its No. 21 high, and Adult Contemporary, where it pushes 23-22.
"Dynamite" additionally becomes the first song to simultaneously top both of Billboard's new global charts.
