Lil Baby rises from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated July 11) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a third total week.
The rapper’s album My Turn logs a fifth week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with 70,000 equivalent album units earned, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, marking the longest reign of 2020.
Lil Baby’s Artist 100 dominance is also aided by six songs on the latest Billboard Hot 100, led by “We Paid,” with 42 Dugg, as the collab surges to the top 10.
Lil Baby first led the Artist 100 in March, concurrent with the chart debut of My Turn.
Megan Thee Stallion jumps from No. 22 to No. 9 on the Artist 100, entering the top 10 for the first time on the strength of two songs on the Hot 100. Her former No. 1 “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé, ranks at No. 4, followed by her new track “Girls in the Hood,” which debuts at No. 28 (14.3 million U.S. streams; 11,000 sold).
Just outside the Artist 100’s top 10, Haim hits a new high, re-entering at No. 13 as the sister trio’s third LP, Women in Music, Pt. III, launches at No. 1 on Top Rock Albums and Alternative Albums and No. 13 on the Billboard 200.
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.
