The artists behind this week’s hottest album and hottest song claim the top two spots on this week’s Billboard Artist 100. The act who has potentially reigned as the biggest star this year follows at #3 on the chart.

Indeed, Taylor Swift returns to #1 on the listing in conjunction with the launch of her album “Lover.” Not simply successful as an overall album package, “Lover” also sent all eighteen individual tracks onto the Billboard Hot 100.

After her needle-moving performance at the Video Music Awards, Lizzo rises to #2 on this week’s Artist 100. The Artist 100 rise coincides with her “Truth Hurts” reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lizzo actually saw gains across her entire discography this week.

Billie Eilish may not have had a specific album or song “hook” this week, but her music continues to put up monster numbers. As a result, she takes #3 this week.

The Artist 100 ranks the top artists in America based on sales, streams and radio airplay. Headline Planet first reported the Billboard Artist 100 leaders on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
