On the latest tally, Swift’s latest LP ‘Folklore’ returns to #1 and registers its 7th non-consecutive week at the top.
Fuelled by 87,000 in sales, the album has earned a number of notable honors.
- most weeks in pole position list in almost four years.
- most weeks #1 since Drake’s ‘Views’ ruled for 13 nonconsecutive weeks in 2016.
- sees Swift surpass Whitney Houston for the most cumulative weeks at #1 among women.
The latter means Swift has officially strut past Houston’s record of 46 total weeks at #1 on the coveted chart.
Houston managed the feat with four albums, while Swift has done so across seven efforts.
With the career milestone in reaching distance, this week saw Swift add signed copies of the surprise LP to her web-store – as well as merchandise bundles too.
