Billboard 200: Taylor Swift Surpasses Whitney Houston To Achieve Most Weeks At #1 Among Women

Published: Sunday 27th Sep 2020 by Sam

Taylor Swift reigns for another week on the Billboard 200 and, in the process, blasts past a major record set by Whitney Houston.

Full story below…

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.

They include:

  • 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.

    Taylor wish she has a voice like Whitney. She wish she didn’t bomb the cat movie. She wish she can has her own body guard movie. She wish she can F black men like Whitney

      Oh please, I bet Taylor is quite satisfied with her life. And to be honest, she seems more satisfied and grounded than Whitney has ever been. Whitney has been one of the most talented women out there, but her life has been a mess and she became a Joke. Taylor on the other hand was part of the most horrible movies of the last 20 years, but still came out successful. Just stating the facts, i hate that new Album and her last one, but there seem to be a lot people loving it.

    The mayonnaise is strong…unbelievable

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 28, 2020

      Nothing wrong with mayo now and again, sweetie 💋

    Folklore is actually a great album so I’m happy for her.I love “this is me trying” and “Betty”.

  4. Oops September 27, 2020

    All y’all jealous your fav was a ratchet hood rat addicted to crack. Ever hear the saying you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig? If it quacks like a duck and acts like it’s a duck, it’s a duck.

    Don’t be mad at Taylor cause she’s true to herself and has a clear head on her shoulders. On other news! Whitneys about 8 years sober today!

    • Jason September 27, 2020

      That explains your vast collection of lipstick piggy!

    • Lmfao_Hoe September 27, 2020

      B**** there will be no Whitney THE VOICE Houston slander tolerated PERIODT. Nobody gives f*** about this tally when Whitney’s legacy will forever remain strong while Swift has no impact on anything at all…” oh she sells more than your faves” B**** please keep pocket watching as if you’re getting a check. Yet what has her basic ass done iconic, artistically, inspiringly, or groundbreaking as Madonna, Mariah, Barbs, Whitney, Celine, etc. with all those sells? Sells mean nothing without actual impact or longevity -timeless gems.

    • : what would Whitney Houston say September 27, 2020

      b**** whitney died of an accidental drowning…..accident

    • : what would Whitney Houston say September 27, 2020

      b**** Whitney Houston had way more class than Taylor Swift even on cocaine weed she was not a hoodrat
      she was not a slutlike Taylor either the party heard Taylor was a h**

    • PB September 28, 2020

      I hope someone disrespects your bald headed mother the way you’re trying to disrespect a legend. Not a thing you said had to do with the charts nor talent. Taylor has a strong fan base but the talent of Bo Peep from Toy Story and that almost too much credit. Get your head out of your ass.

  5. Jason September 27, 2020

    And still not a vocal in sight. Meh

  6. Run to you September 27, 2020

    Taylor is the FLAT!
    flat ass..
    flat vocals..
    she’s not the voice and never will be.

    • Fancy BISH September 27, 2020

      And she’s still winning

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(Not 👵🏿marilyn monTroll👵🏿) September 27, 2020

  7. Lmfao_Hoe September 27, 2020

    Yeah thanks to damn streams *eyerolls

  8. stevej September 27, 2020

    I actually purchased Folklore. It’s the only time I’ve purchased any of her music. I love the disc 💚🌲🖤🌲🖤🌲💚.

  9. tyty September 27, 2020

    Well her fan base loves her so… Can’t hate them for actually buying and streaming her s*** mediocre as it may be.

  10. Got2BReal September 27, 2020


    Records were meant to be broken. Whitney is still the VOICE, and forever will be. She’s the blueprint. Taylor is…. well she has the sales.

    Gowns, beautiful gowns…

  11. Taylor Swift 1989 September 27, 2020

    Congrats Taylor!!! Whitney is a legend
    No need to compare

    But Taylor is the current Queen. Of Music industry🥰😍👑🎶

  12. WWWD September 27, 2020

    why didn’t you put a younger picture of Whitney Houston up next to Taylor,

  13. PB September 28, 2020

    It’s so ghetto here.

  14. TRANS RACIAL QUEEN September 28, 2020

    Can’t see Taylors record being nomen anytime soon!

  15. Shayla Queen 👑 September 28, 2020

    Whitney is a legend, Taylor is an icon of her generation with nearly 15 years in the game now. Whitney had the voice, Taylor has the pen. Two completely different artists. Both completely talented and influential in their own ways. Folklore is a good album. Congrats Taylor and RIP Whitney, you’re still the voice! ❤️💋

    • Taylor Swift 1989 September 28, 2020

      I agree! Shayla you are the one that makes the most sense here

      • Shayla Queen 👑 September 28, 2020

        Thank you, I appreciate that! ☺️

      • Katherine Laurence October 23, 2020

        agreed! everyone else is just hating but u actually have a point 👏👏👏

  16. What Would Whitney Do January 31, 2021
