Juice WRLD hit the top spot on the Billboard Artist 100 chart dated July 25, vaulting from 11th place to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a third total week, riding on the success of his posthumous LP Legends Never Die.

The album climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, logging 497,000 equivalent album units, the most for a title this year, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data,

As many as 17 tracks from the album figure on the Billboard Hot 100, with five making it to the top 10. Juice WRLD is the third act ever, after The Beatles and Drake, to chart so many songs in the region at a given time.

The Artist 100 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.

Juice WRLD first led the Artist 100 in March 2019, when his album Death Race for Love debuted atop the Billboard 200, and again in December following his December 8 death.

Juice WRLD is one of six artists to have topped the Artist 100 chart posthumously, dating to the chart's July 2014 inception, following David Bowie (January 2016), Prince (May 2016), Tom Petty (October 2017), XXXTentacion (June 2018) and Pop Smoke (a week ago).
