Not only did Trey Songz top the Billboard 200 chart with his brand new album, Trigga, he also leads the newly launched Artist 100 chart, which “blends information culled from album sales, track sales, radio airplay, streaming, and social media to provide a multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.”
"Billboard is incredible at tracking and reporting the influence of artists across different avenues and I could not be happier to be No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and the very first No. 1 on The Billboard Artist 100 at the same time. They've found innovative ways to measure artist activity and I applaud their forward thinking. Thank you to Billboard, to my fans, my angels, and everyone that made this happen," said Trey Songz.
John Amato, Co-President, Billboard, adds, “Never in the history of music have artists had so many ways to reach fans as they do today… The Artist 100 chart is revolutionizing how artists are ranked in a way that is very relevant to music fans and pop culture enthusiasts.”
The new Billboard Artist 100 chart reflects a more cumulative impression of an artist's popularity across all the main means of music consumption and popular culture. The new chart is powered by data from Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound.
