Bob Dylan Tops Billboard Artist 100 Chart For First TimeJuly 5, 2020
Bob Dylan has topped the Billboard Artist 100 chart for the first time since its inception in 2014.
The 79-year-old singer, who released the LP Rough and Rowdy Ways in late June is the senior-most act to have achieved this feat, having now surpassed Paul McCartney, who, at 76, led the chart in 2018.
The chart is ranked based on data obtained from a wide range of sources, including music consumption, blending album & track sales, radio airplay, streaming, and interaction with fans through social media.
Meanwhile, the LP is currently at the No. 2 position on the Billboard 200 chart, having acquired 53,000 album-equivalent units since its release on June 19. It also reigns both the Top Rock Albums chart as well as the Americana/Folk Albums chart.
