Lady Gaga Tallies Sixth Week Atop Artist 100 Chart, Dion Debuts

Lady Gaga logs her sixth total week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated June 20), again reigning as the country’s top musical act on the strength of her new LP, Chromatica.

The set ranks at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 64,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, after debuting at No. 1 a week earlier.

Plus, the album’s “Rain on Me,” with Ariana Grande, places at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, following its launch at No. 1 two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, legendary pop vet Dion debuts on the Artist 100 at No. 72, as his new set Blues With Friends arrives at No. 1 on Blues Albums and No. 5 on Americana/Folk Albums (6,000 units). The album is Dion’s first of new material since 2007’s Son of Skip James.

Dion boasts an extensive history on Billboard’s charts. He’s tallied 33 total entries on the Hot 100, solo and as credited to Dion & The Belmonts, with most tallied from the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception through the mid-’60s. He scored his first of 11 top 10s with the No. 5-peaking “A Teenager in Love” in 1959, ruled for two weeks with “Runaround Sue” in 1961 and sent follow-up and fellow signature song “The Wanderer” to No. 2 in 1962.

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.
