Drake dominates for a 21st week, while new Hot 100 leaders The Chainsmokers surge from No. 9 to No. 5.
Drake is the top musical act in the United States, ruling the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Sept. 3) for a 21st total week. Meanwhile, The Chainsmokers leap into the chart's top five for the first time.
The Artist 100 measures artist activity across Billboard's most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, 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.
Drake extends his mark for the most weeks atop the Artist 100 among males (dating to the chart's July 2014 launch); he trails only Taylor Swift, who has totaled 31 weeks at No. 1. Streaming continues to mark the biggest share of Drake's Artist 100 chart points (39 percent), followed by radio airplay (22 percent), digital song sales (17 percent) and album sales (14 percent).
