As first reported by Headline Planet, Lauren Daigle earns #3 on this week’s Billboard Artist 100 chart.

Insofar as she only trails two male artists — Paul McCartney (#1) and Eminem (#2) — she ranks as the chart’s leading female act.

The Billboard Artist 100 ranks the top artists in America based on factors like album sales, song consumption and social media activity. Daigle achieves her impressive position in conjunction with the release of new album “Look Up Child.”

Ariana Grande, who ranks as the #10 overall artist on this week’s chart, is the #2 female act.

Cardi B is #3 among females and #12 overall, while Nicki Minaj takes #4 for female acts and #20 among all artists.

Ella Mai directly follows as the #5 female and #21 overall artist.

Other high-ranking female artists on this week’s chart include Taylor Swift (#6 female, #24 overall), Aretha Franklin (#7 female, #31 overall), Camila Cabello (#8 female, #32 overall), Selena Gomez (#9 female, #34 overall), and Bebe Rexha (#10 female, #41 overall).
