The pop/R&B star scores his lucky 13th week on top.
The Artist 100 (which launched in July 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.
The Weeknd leads the Artist 100 chart for a 13th total week, with streaming accounting for the greatest share of his chart action (35 percent), as his hit single "Starboy" (featuring Daft Punk) ranks at No. 4 on the Streaming Songs chart (20 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 19, according to Nielsen Music). His album of the same name leads the Billboard 200 for a fourth total (and third consecutive) week, with 61,000 equivalent album units. Follow-up single "I Feel It Coming," also featuring Daft Punk, adds to The Weeknd's streaming total, rising 35-34 on Streaming Songs (7.5 million).
