With male artists dominating the upper ranks of the Billboard Artist 100 in recent months, Headline Planet has published separate lists identifying the top female acts on the chart.

This week, the #1 female artist is also the #1 overall artist.

Thanks to a mammoth week-over-week increase in album sales (driven by new concert ticket/album bundle redemptions for “Beautiful Trauma”), P!nk rises to the #1 spot on this week’s Billboard Artist 100.

The Artist 100 ranks the top artists in America using data from key Billboard charts (including those related to album sales, song sales and streams, and social media activity).

P!nk seizes the Artist 100 crown from Post Malone.

She, meanwhile, seizes the “Top Female Artist” label from Cardi B, who held that distinction for the past six weeks.

Cardi B is the #2 female this week; she occupies #7 on the overall chart.

Other high-ranking female artists include Camila Cabello (#3 female, #12 overall), Taylor Swift (#4 female, #16 overall), Dua Lipa (#5 female, #20 overall), Ariana Grande (#6 female, #24 overall), Nicki Minaj (#7 female, #28 overall), Halsey (#8 female, #32 overall), SZA (#9 female, #36 overall), and Selena Gomez (#10 female, #38 overall).
