Ed Sheeran returns to No. 1 on Billboard Artist 100 for 10th total week
Congratulations to Ed Sheeran, who returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart for a 10th total week on top, as his former Billboard Hot 100 leader “Perfect” spends its seventh week atop the Radio Songs chart.
The Artist 100, which launched in July 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.
Billboard reports that “Perfect” holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100 for a fifth straight week after spending six frames at No. 1. Meanwhile, Sheeran’s former 12-week Hot 100 No. 1 remains on the chart, at No. 24, in its 58th week.
On the Artist 100 list, which reveals how many weeks the artists spend at No.1, Sheeran is preceeded by singers like Justin Bieber (11 weeks), The Weeknd (14 weeks), Drake (25 weeks) and Taylor Swift (36 weeks).
