Post Malone is still tops, but the No. 2 and 3 slots on the Elite 100 Artists chart went to Zac Brown Band and Blink-182, who each released a new album in the week ending Sept. 26. 
Zac Brown Band was the chart leader in album sales, with 115,500 after the Sept. 20 release of The Owl. The group also logged 19.9 million on-demand streams and 22,200 song sales. 
ZBB came in at No. 2 on the latest Live75 chart thanks to the groups average ticket count of 20,060 over 10 shows reported in the last 30 days. 
The group signed with WME in March, and is managed by Scooter Braun’s SB Projects. ZBB is nominated for the Country Music Association award for Vocal Group of the Year, with the winner to be announced at the CMA Awards Nov. 13 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. 
Blink-182 comes in at No. 3 for the week, with 103,400 total album units. The group outperformed ZBB I the on-demand streams category, with 32.2 million for the week, but the guys’ best category was album sales, with 77,700 after the release of NINE.
The group is scheduled to play Aftershock Festival at Sacramento, Calif.’s Discovery park and recently concluded a co-headline tour with Lil Wayne. Wayne missed a few shows on the tour due to illness, travel issues and, near the end decided not to play the show in St. Louis after encountering problems with the police at his hotel. 
That co-headline tour reported several dates, and the business seems to have been big. Multiple dates came in with grosses above $400,000 and their show at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., raked in $747,606. 
Brittany Howard also charted at No. 61 this week after the release of her first solo album, Jaime. The project is named after her sister, who passed away when Howard was a teenager. She detailed the significance of the album in a letter shared on social media.
The Alabama Shakes, Bermuda Triangle and Thunderbitch frontwoman logged 21,800 total album units, most of which came from her 19,400 album sales. 
Howard just completed a solo tour Sept. 27 at The Fillmore in Philadelphia. Next up she has performances scheduled at Austin City Limits festival in Austin and Afropunk Festival in Atlanta, along with two nights at Theatre At Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. 
Tee Grizzley also made the chart at the No. 76 position, thanks largely to his 22 million streams for the week. He dropped his latest project, Satish, on Sept. 20.
Next week’s chart will include data on releases from DaBaby, Sturgill Simpson, Jon Pardi, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Tegan and Sarah, Kevin Gates, DragonForce, Kristin Chenoweth, Young M.A., Whiskey Myers, The New Pornographers, Steel Panther, Beth Hart and Hellyeah.
