The trio is the first group to reign since another folk-rock act: Mumford & Sons, nearly a year ago.
The Lumineers reign as the top musical act in the U.S., re-entering the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated April 30) at No. 1. The group earns its first week on top, powered by the arrival of its new album, Cleopatra.
The Artist 100 (which launched in July 2014) 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.
