The Artist 100 measures artist activity across Billboard's most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Top Album Sales and the Social 50. The Artist 100 blends data measuring album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
Zayn rules the Artist 100 as his debut solo album Mind of Mine enters atop the Billboard 200 (157,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending March 31 in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music) and Top Album Sales (112,000 in pure album sales).
