The Weeknd is having a great week, no pun intended.  After scoring two top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, he’s become the top act on the  the Billboard Artist 100 chart. It’s the first time the singer has topped the magazine’s weekly survey.

According to the publication, the singer climbs from #3 to #1 on the tally, which measures artist activity across Billboard’s most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Top Album Sales and the Social 50.

His rise on the chart comes as a result of his two concurrent top 10s on the Hot 100: “Can’t Feel My Face,” up from #3 to #2, and “The Hills,” at #10, his fourth career top 10.

Elsewhere, Tyrese comes in at #3 thanks to his chart-topping album, Black Rose, and Meek Mill comes in #4 due to his Dreams Worth More than Money LP.
