JoBros reign as their comeback album 'Happiness Begins' launches atop the Billboard 200.
Jonas Brothers vault from No. 14 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated June 22) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time. The trio reigns as its fifth LP Happiness Begins launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 414,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.
The set debuts with the biggest week of 2019 for an album and the biggest among groups since One Direction's Made in the A.M. in 2015.
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. (The chart began in 2014, following Jonas Brothers' hiatus after they logged their first two Billboard 200 No. 1s in 2008 and 2009.)
