Juice WRLD Tops Billboard Artist 100 Chart, The Chicks Fly to No. 2

Juice WRLD tallies his fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Aug. 1), as his posthumous LP Legends Never Die logs its second frame atop the Billboard 200.

The set holds at No. 1 with 162,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It opened with 497,000 units, the biggest weekly sum for a title this year.

The Artist 100, which launched in 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.

Meanwhile, The Chicks re-enter the Artist 100 at No. 2, a new peak, on the strength of their album Gaslighter, which arrives at No. 1 on Top Country Albums and No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 84,000 units. The trio’s first album of new material since 2006 is its fifth No. 1 on Top Country Albums, as The Chicks pass The Judds for the most leaders among female duos or groups in the chart’s 56-year history.
