Powered by a mammoth sales gain for her recent album “Beautiful Trauma,” P!nk returned to #1 on last week’s Billboard Artist 100. That, obviously, meant that she also ranked as the week’s top female artist. Cardi B had held that distinction for the previous six weeks.

This week, Cardi B recaptures that crown.

Cardi B takes #6 on the overall chart, which is the highest position occupied by a female artist. Only BTS (#1), Post Malone (#2), Drake (#3), Five Finger Death Punch (#4), and Imagine Dragons (#6) occupy higher slots.

Camila Cabello, who rises to #9 on the overall Artist 100, takes second place among female acts. Taylor Swift directly follows; she is #3 among females and #10 among all artists.

Other high-ranking female artists include Dua Lipa (#4 female, #15 overall), Ariana Grande (#5 female, #18 overall), P!nk (#6 female, #21 overall), Nicki Minaj (#7 female, #27 overall), Halsey (#8 female, #31 overall), Ella Mai (#9 female, #33 overall), and SZA (#10 female, #35 overall).

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