Billboard 200: Taylor Swift’s ‘Folklore’ Reigns For Fifth Week / Ties For Most Weeks At #1 In 2020

Published: Monday 31st Aug 2020 by Ryan

Taylor Swift continues to dominate the Billboard 200.

With its fifth week atop the chart, ‘Folklore’ ties an impressive record.

More details below:

The Pop superstar’s eight studio album sold 98,000 units in its fifth week, allowing it to hold on to the top spot.

In doing so, it becomes only the second album released in 2020 to spend five weeks at the chart’s summit. The only other album to achieve this was Lil Baby‘s ‘My Turn.’ 

Additionally, ‘Folklore’ becomes the first album since Drake‘s ‘Scorpion’ to spend its first five weeks on the top of the chart.

If it manages to hold on for a sixth week, then it will tally the most weeks at #1 since Drake’s ‘Views’ spent 13 weeks at #1 in 2016.

Beyond Swift’s domination, Nas claims this week’s highest new entry with ‘King’s Disease’ entering at #5 with 47,000 units sold. The Killers are also a new entry at #8 with ‘Imploding the Mirage,’ as it sells 37,000 units.

    At this point we know there are more whites than black who will support their own people just like the Asians.

      People support people. Period. Why do so many Hip-Hop albums and songs fill up the top ten? That’s not white people only supporting their own. Calm it.

    Too OVERRATED!!!!! I don’t get the hype. The whole album is like her early country folk songs rejects.

      Hype is when the numbers don’t add up.
      What Taylor gets is love and support
