Madonna vaults onto Billboard Artist 100 at No. 7
Madonna makes her debut with a bang onto the Billboard Artist 100 chart, the first weekly survey dedicated to measuring artist activity across Billboard’s most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Top Album Sales and the Social 50.
The Artist 100 blends data measuring album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
The Queen of Pop enters the chart at No.7 with almost all (97%) of her chart activity from album sales. Madonna is up by 2,919 percent in overall Artist 100 points. She also gains by 31 percent in social reaction.
Thus, more than three decades into her legendary career, Madonna hits the top 10 on yet another chart: the Artist 100 only launched last July.
