Swift stays atop the chart for a 24th week, while proud papa (and Memphis Grizzlies fan) Timberlake nets a gain.
Taylor Swift keeps a firm grasp on the top spot of the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated May 9), while Wiz Khalifa rises to No. 2. Further down the list, Justin Timberlake surges with a little help from his newly expanded family.
The Artist 100 is 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.
Swift spends a record-extending 24th week at No. 1 on the Artist 100, up by 3 percent in activity. Helping power her social metrics: a win at the April 20 Shorty Awards (which celebrate social media prowess) and her rumored new relationship with EDM superstar Calvin Harris.
Up 3-2 on the Artist 100, Wiz Khalifa ties his highest rank, first reached eight months ago (despite a 5 percent drop). The rapper first reached the runner-up spot when his album Blacc Hollywood debuted atop the Billboard 200 dated Sept. 6. That week, album sales accounted for 78 percent of his Artist 100 standing.

What happened to Taylor Swift? While we have known, intellectually, for some time that she is the blonde, sweet, multi-platinum-selling country star, we can’t swear that in Britain, we always really got her, can we? In fact, for many years, you’d have sooner flashed your knickers on the bus than let anyone see her name flash up on your iPod.
Now? She is owning us all – a global phenomenon of an album, an obsession to her 25.5million Instagram followers. A Saturday Night Live sketch from a few months ago sums it up nicely, where a bunch of adults rush to their doctors suffering from a new sincere and unironic enjoyment of Taylor Swift tunes. The joke being, this is confusing and alarming for them. I think most of us can relate. Her album 1989 is one of the most ludicrously catchy collections of ‘proper’ pop songs since Gaga’s The Fame. Resistance has been futile. And not only is it now politely tolerated, but actually totally frickin’ cool to unashamedly adore Taylor Swift. Hell, even Kanye, who once famously stormed a stage because she won ‘Beyoncé’s’ VMA award, is now a fan.
