Camila Cabello Is First Woman Since Adele to Triple Up Atop Hot 100, Billboard 200 & Artist 100 Charts

She's the first artist overall to earn the honor since Kendrick Lamar last May.

Camila Cabello leaps from No. 12 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Jan. 27) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time.

She becomes the first female artist to triple up atop the Artist 100, Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and Billboard 200 albums chart simultaneously since Adele just over two years ago. She’s the first artist overall to earn the honor since Kendrick Lamar last May.

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.


Cabello’s Artist 100 coronation is powered by her debut album Camila, which arrives atop the Billboard 200 with 119,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, and its single “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, which rises 2-1 on the Hot 100 in its 23rd chart week.

“Havana” gains 34 percent to 44.9 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 18 and takes over at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart. The track also surges by 52 percent to 80,000 downloads sold and sports 131 million in all-format airplay audience. Album sales contribute the majority of Cabello’s Artist 100 points (52 percent), followed by digital song sales (20 percent).

Lamar last led the Artist 100, Hot 100 and Billboard 200 in the same week on charts dated May 6, topping the latter two tallies with “Humble.” and DAMN., respectively.

Before Cabello, Adele was the last such female triple threat, leading the Hot 100 with “Hello” and the Billboard 200 with 25 on Jan. 16, 2016.


Since the Artist 100’s inception, seven acts have ruled all three Billboard charts simultaneously:

Artist, Weeks
Drake, 10
Taylor Swift, 7
Adele, 6
Ed Sheeran, 2

Rounding out the Artist 100’s top five, Ed Sheeran falls from No. 1 to No. 2, Imagine Dragons dip 2-3, Post Malone rises 5-4 and Cardi B drops 3-5.


Meanwhile, The Cranberries debut at No. 9 following the Jan. 15 passing of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan. The group debuts five songs on the Hot Rock Songs chart, led by “Zombie” at No. 5, while its Stars: The Best of 1992-2002 debuts on the Billboard 200 at No. 16 (22,000 units, up 1,843 percent).
