Even before the December 2020 release of her last album, ‘Evermore,’ Pop megastar Taylor Swift‘s history-making run on Billboard charts knew few rivals, but – thanks to the LP’s ongoing triumphs – even that list of success contemporaries is dwindling.
See what we mean inside:
In September 2020, we reported the ‘Willow’ wailer made history when her album, ‘Folklore,’ helped her edge out legendary late Pop icon Whitney Houston for “most career weeks atop the Billboard 200 among women.”
Since then, Swift’s not only collected more weeks with ‘Folklore’ but also its successor. The latter’s return to #1 this week may mark its third rung in the chart’s pole position, but it’s Swift’s 51st overall.
“With Evermore’s third week in the lead, Swift now has a cumulative 51 weeks at No. 1 across all eight of her chart-topping albums. That ties Michael Jackson for the fourth-most weeks at No. 1 in the chart’s 65-year history. The two superstars only trail The Beatles (a record 132 weeks), Elvis Presley (67) and Garth Brooks (52).”
As we extend our congratulations to Taylor, look below to see who joins her on TGJ’s newest Chart Check: Billboard 200.
