A high-profile appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” the release of a new song, and the revelation of the track list for his new album thrust Harry Styles back onto the Billboard Artist 100.

Styles claims #43 on this week’s chart, which ranks the top artists in America based on factors like song consumption, album sales and social media activity.

In addition to hosting “SNL,” Styles performed previously released track “Lights Up” and new song “Watermelon Sugar.” The showcase boosted activity for the former, leading to a Billboard Hot 100 re-entry at #77. “Watermelon Sugar” concurrently debuts at #60.

The very idea of the “SNL” appearance also ignited social media activity, as did the “Fine Line” track list announcement.
