Olivia Rodrigo returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Sept. 4), ruling for a sixth total week, helped by the Aug. 20 vinyl release of her debut LP Sour.
The set revisits the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 for a fifth week on top, with 133,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Aug. 26, according to MRC Data. It sold 76,000 vinyl albums in the tracking week, marking the second-largest sales week for a vinyl album since MRC Data began electronically tracking sales in 1991.
Rodrigo concurrently places four songs from Sour on the latest Billboard Hot 100: former No. 1 “Good 4 U” at No. 3, by “Deja Vu” at No. 8, “Traitor” at No. 28 and “Brutal,” a re-entry at No. 89.
The Artist 100, which began in 2014, measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
Among other Artist 100 chart moves, Tomorrow X Together re-enters at No. 4, a new peak, thanks to the deluxe reissue of its LP The Chaos Chapter: Freeze. The set re-enters the Billboard 200 at No. 8 (47,000 units) after debuting at its No. 5 high in June.
Lorde re-enters the Artist 100 at No. 5 as her third LP Solar Power launches at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 (56,000 units). She last appeared on the Artist 100 in 2017, reaching a No. 3 best.
Trippie Redd also returns to the Artist 100, at a new No. 6 career high, as his LP Trip at Knight opens at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 (81,000 units).
Plus, late R&B singer Aaliyah debuts at No. 14 on the Artist 100 driven by the Aug. 20 reissue of her 1996 sophomore LP One in a Million. The previously out-of-print album earned 26,000 units in the tracking week and re-enters the Billboard 200 at No. 10, a new peak.
