YoungBoy Never Broke Again Hits No. 1 on Artist 100 for First Time, Thanks to ‘Top’ Debut

YoungBoy Never Broke Again jumps from No. 41 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Sept. 26) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time.

He rules the ranking as his new album Top arrives at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 126,000 equivalent album units earned, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The set earns YoungBoy the rare honor of three No. 1 albums in less than a year.

The rapper concurrently sports nine entries on the latest Billboard Hot 100 chart, led by “My Window,” featuring Lil Wayne, the top debut at No. 35. As seven of those nine entries debut this week, YoungBoy has now charted 47 total songs on the Hot 100 in his career (the same amount each as J. Cole, Paul McCartney, Prince and T-Pain).

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.
