Brown also benefits from the album's lead single "Lose It," which dethrones Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's "Meant to Be" after a record 50 weeks atop the Hot Country Songs chart. "Lose It" also jumps 53-28 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Brown's third top 40 hit.
Brown previously peaked at No. 5 on the Artist 100 in October 2017.
Queen rules as the top musical act in the U.S. for a second straight week, holding atop the Artist 100. Following the Nov. 2 premiere of the new Bohemian Rhapsody biopic about the band and late frontman Freddie Mercury, its soundtrack dips 3-7 on the Billboard 200 (54,000 units, down 8 percent). Queen narrowly fends off Brown for No. 1 on the Artist 100, despite a 21 percent drop in overall metrics, while Brown bounds by 395 percent.
Queen is the first duo or group to spend consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Artist 100 since Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in October 2017, following Petty's death.
Rounding out the Artist 100's top five, Imagine Dragons jumps 5-3, Ariana Grande dips 2-4 and Drake rises 6-5.
Plus, The Beatles re-enter the chart at No. 10, as the group's 1968 self-titled classic double LP, often referred to as the White Album, re-enters the Billboard 200 at No. 6 following its 50th anniversary reissue (63,000 units, up 1,499 percent). The Fab Four earn their highest Artist 100 placement since June 2017, when they hit a No. 5 high.
