Queen Retains #1 Position On Billboard Artist 100 Chart; Kane Brown Claims #2

Queen and Kane Brown claim the top two spots on this week’s Artist 100.

As “Bohemian Rhapsody” continues to resonate with moviegoers, Queen retains its position as the top overall music act in America.

Queen spends a second week atop the Billboard Artist 100, which ranks acts based on factors like album sales, song consumption and social media activity.

Powered by the release of his album “Experiment,” Kane Brown soars to #2 on this week’s chart.

Imagine Dragons enjoy a two-place lift to #3, while Ariana Grande slips two places to #4. Up one place, Drake claims #5.

Post Malone (#6, +1), Lady Gaga (#7, -4), XXXTentacion (#8, +7), BTS (#9, -4), and The Beatles (#10, re-entry) complete the Top 10.
