Among other Artist 100 chart moves, Shawn Mendes bounds from No. 45 to No. 3 as his new album, Wonder, opens at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and Mariah Carey jumps 21-5 on the Artist 100, returning to her best rank, first reached last holiday season, as her "All I Want for Christmas Is You" revisits the top of the Hot 100.
Additionally, The White Stripes debut at No. 52 on the Artist 100, thanks to the duo's new The White Stripes Greatest Hits, which arrives at No. 33 on the Billboard 200 (24,000 units). Last year, the act's Jack White became the first artist to lead the Artist 100 in different iterations: first as a solo act in 2018 and then as a member of The Raconteurs in 2019. Plus, other project The Dead Weather spent a week on the Artist 100 at No. 32 in 2015. (The White Stripes disbanded in 2011, before the Artist 100 began in 2014.)
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.
