Ariana Grande logs her 15th total week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Nov. 21), holding as the top musical act in the U.S. on the strength of her new album Positions.

The album spends its second week atop the Billboard 200 chart with 82,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Grande concurrently lands six of the set's tracks on the latest Billboard Hot 100, a week after placing all 14 on the chart. "Positions" lands the highest at No. 2, after it debuted at No. 1 two weeks ago, followed by "34+35" at No. 30, down from its No. 8 arrival.

With her 15th week at No. 1 on the Artist 100, Grande passes Post Malone for the fourth-most weeks spent in the top spot, dating to the chart's 2014 launch. Taylor Swift holds the record for the most weeks at No. 1 (41), followed by Drake (31) and The Weeknd (20).

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.
