The first Billboard charts of 2019 contain good news for Ava Max. The artist makes her first appearance on the Billboard Artist 100 chart, while her breakthrough single “Sweet But Psycho” makes a big jump on the Hot 100.

Ava Max enters the Artist 100 at #98. The chart ranks the top artists in America based on factors like album sales, song consumption and social media activity.

In the case of Ava Max, almost all the activity is coming from the aforementioned “Sweet But Psycho.” Thanks to sales, streaming and radio gains (and Christmas songs falling off the chart), “Sweet But Psycho” soars forty-two places to #41 on the Billboard Hot 100.
