Morgan Wallen ties Jason Aldean for the most weeks spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart among country acts, as the former logs his third week on top.

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.

Wallen leads the Feb. 6-dated Artist 100 for a third consecutive (and total) week on the continued strength of his latest LP Dangerous: The Double Album. The set spends a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums charts with 130,000 equivalent album units earned, according to MRC Data. The last album to score at least three weeks atop the Billboard 200 and appear on Top Country Albums was Taylor Swift's Red, which tallied seven weeks in the pole position (including its first three) in 2012-13.

Wallen concurrently lands nine songs from Dangerous on the Billboard Hot 100, led by "7 Summers," "More Than My Hometown" and "Wasted on You" at Nos. 23, 30 and 31, respectively. In the set's opening week (Jan. 23), Wallen charted 19 songs on the Hot 100, the most in a week ever for a core country act.
