BTS Ties Post Malone for Fifth-Most Weeks at No. 1 on Artist 100 Chart

BTS spends a 14th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart, powered by two songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and three albums on the Billboard 200 (dated Dec. 12).

The South Korean stars’ former Hot 100 No. 1 “Dynamite” leads at No. 10, followed by their third leader, “Life Goes On,” at No. 28. The latter became the first predominantly Korean-language song to rule the Hot 100 upon its entrance a week ago.

BTS also leads the Artist 100 on the strength of its latest LP Be, at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, following its No. 1 arrival, with 55,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The group’s Map of the Soul: 7 ranks at No. 104 (11,000 units) and Love Yourself: Answer re-enters at No. 189 (7,000).

BTS extends its record for the most weeks spent at No. 1 on the Artist 100 among duos/groups. The septet also ties Post Malone for the fifth-most time on top overall, dating to the chart’s 2014 launch.

Among other Artist 100 chart moves, Bad Bunny jumps from No. 34 to No. 2, returning to his highest rank, as his new album El Ultimo Tour del Mundo debuts atop the Billboard 200 with 166,000 units, becoming the first No. 1 all-Spanish-language album in the chart’s history.

Plus, Miley Cyrus surges from No. 63 to No. 9 on the Artist 100, hitting the top 10 for the first time, as her new LP Plastic Hearts starts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 (60,000).

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.
