Billie Eilish Returns to No. 1 on Billboard Artist 100 Chart for 5th Week
With a fifth week at No. 1, she's the 12th act to spend five weeks atop the tally.
Billie Eilish rises from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Aug. 3) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a fifth total week, as her single “Bad Guy” holds at its No. 2 peak on the Billboard Hot 100. Eilish has been a constant presence in the top five of the chart for the past 17 weeks.
Her return to No. 1 is also aided by her two albums on the Billboard 200: Her latest album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? stands at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 (after logging three weeks on top) and her debut effort Don’t Smile at Me rises 23-20 (after peaking at No. 14 in January).
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.
Notably, Eilish is only the 12th act to join the five-week club on the Artist 100. Here’s an updated look at the acts with the most weeks at No. 1 on the Artist 100:

15, The Weeknd

Rounding out the Artist 100’s top five, Ed Sheeran dips 1-2, Khalid rises 5-3, Post Malone holds at No. 4, and Shawn Mendes leaps 8-5.
Among other chart moves, Beyoncé vaults 46-16, entering the top 20 for the first time since May, as her album The Lion King: The Gift debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. She also sends two of its tracks onto the Hot 100: “Brown Skin Girl,” with SAINt JHN and Wizkid featuring Blue Ivy Carter, at No. 76 and “Mood 4 Eva,” with JAY-Z and Childish Gambino featuring Oumou Sangare, at No. 90.
