Plus, Hillsong United re-enters at a new No. 3 high.

P!nk jumps from No. 17 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated May 11) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a third total week, as her eighth LP, Hurts 2B Humandebuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 115,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.

P!nk first led the Artist 100 in November 2017 and returned to the top in May 2018.

The Artist 100 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.

P!nk also lands two songs on the Billboard Hot 100 this week: the LP's lead single "Walk Me Home" vaults 62-49, hitting a new peak, and "Love Me Anyway," featuring Chris Stapleton, debuts at No. 96.

Christian worship collective Hillsong United re-enters the Artist 100 at a new No. 3 high as its new album People debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 107,000 units. (The act previously spent a week on the Artist 100, at No. 63, in July 2017.) Hillsong United ties for the best Artist 100 rank by a core Christian music act, matching Lauren Daigle, who reached No. 3 last September.

Rounding out the Artist 100's top five, BTS dips to No. 2 after four nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1; Taylor Swift leaps 35-4 as her new single "Me!," featuring Brendon Urie, vaults to No. 2 on the Hot 100; and Billie Eilish drops 2-5.
