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.
