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.
Grande's Artist 100 domination is powered by her new LP Thank U, Next, which debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 360,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music. The set's "7 Rings" concurrently logs its fourth week atop the Hot 100, trailed at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, by the album's "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" and the title track.
Drake last led the Hot 100, Billboard 200 and Artist 100 simultaneously for five consecutive weeks in 2018, from July 14 to Aug. 11. In the first week, "Nice for What" and Scorpion ruled the Hot 100 and Billboard 200, respectively, while the next four frames, "In My Feelings" topped the Hot 100 as Scorpion continued atop the Billboard 200. The only other act to swish such a three-pointer in 2018 was Camila Cabello, whose "Havana," featuring Young Thug, led the Hot 100 and debut album Camila opened atop the Billboard 200 dated Jan. 27.
On the Artist 100, Grande reigns for an eighth total week, passing Bruno Mars for seventh-most weeks at No. 1 in the chart's history. Taylor Swift leads with 36 weeks at the summit.
Rounding out the Artist 100's top five, Queen rises 3-2, Post Malone dips 2-3, BTS jumps 10-4 and Halsey holds at No. 5.
