Trey Songz Takes No. 1 in First Billboard Artist 100 Chart
They keep figuring out ways to measure musical and other influences by artists at Billboard. It’s all about data folks.
Billboard last week launched the Artist 100 chart, measuring artists’ activity across Billboard charts.
The weekly Artist 100 chart, which premiered July 10 with Trey Songz as No. 1, blends information from album sales, track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media, according to Billboard.
“Never in the history of music have artists had so many ways to reach fans as they do today,” said John Amato, Billboard co-president, in a statement.
“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,” Songz said in a statement.
