For the first time on record, The Raconteurs occupy a spot on the Billboard Artist 100. And not just any spot — the band earns the #1 position on this week’s listing.

The debut at #1 comes thanks to the release of new album “Help Us Stranger,” which earned #1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The Artist 100 ranks the top artists in America based on factors like album sales, song consumption and social media activity.

Billie Eilish earns #2 on this week’s chart, while Lil Nas X grabs #3 in conjunction with the release of his “7” EP. BTS (#4) and Jonas Brothers (#5) complete the Top 5.

Other Top 10 acts include Shawn Mendes (#6), Khalid (#7), Post Malone (#8), Luke Combs (#9) and Taylor Swift (#10).
