Eilish leads for a ninth total week.

Billie Eilish tallies her ninth total week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Feb. 15), holding as the top musical act in the U.S., as she logs a pair of songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and a pair of titles on the Billboard 200.

On the Hot 100, «Everything I Wanted» holds at No. 10 (after debuting at its No. 8 high in November) and Eilish’s former No. 1 «Bad Guy» ranks at No. 25. «Wanted» also pushes from No. 6 to No. 2 on the Alternative Songs radio airplay chart, as the singer-songwriter seeks her third leader on the list, after «Bad Guy» and «Bury a Friend.»

Eilish’s LP When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? places at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 (after spending three weeks at No. 1), with 52,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, while her 2017 release Don’t Smile at Me ranks at No. 26 (22,000 units).

Among other Artist 100 chart moves, Lil Wayne re-enters at No. 2, as his new album Funeral debuts atop the Billboard 200 with 139,000 units. He previously spent a week at No. 1 on the Artist 100 dated Oct. 13, 2018, concurrent with the chart start of his last LP, Tha Carter V.
