Billboard 200: Taylor Swift’s ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ Scores Second Week At #1, Sets New Record

Published: Monday 11th Oct 2021 by Ryan

Taylor Swift has a reason to celebrate.

The ‘Love Story’ songstress has just scored a second week at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ and has created a new record along the way.

More details below…

On this week’s chart update, Swift’s ‘Fearless’ returns to #1 due to strong sales. In total, it sold 152,000 units with 146,000 units from pure album sales –  this is due to the vinyl being released as well as signed CD’s being sold. The remaining 6,000 units came from streams (8.72 million streams ).

However, Swift has reached a huge feat with her return to the top of the chart. She has now scored the largest positional jump to #1 for a female artist as ‘Fearless’ rose from #157-#1. The largest leap still belongs to The Notorious B.I.G. whose ‘Life After Death’ rose #176-#1 in 1997.

Additionally, Swift continues her reign as the female artist with the most weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart with 53 weeks. Only The Beatles (132) and Elvis Presley (67) have more.

    Most records these days are broken through STREAMING, whereas Taylor is breaking records with PURE SALES.

      You’re so cringe and pathetic 🤣

    Notmani and Chloe could neva. Their recent songs are falling off the charts week by week.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 11, 2021

      So are their wigs.

  5. Fierce October 11, 2021

    Hating on Taylor Swift is a total waste of time.She will keep breaking ur heart.

  6. Lol October 11, 2021

    Reductive? To each their own!!

  7. Claude Remains October 11, 2021

    I think it´s time to stop calling Beyonce “Queen”. The only queens now in the music business are Taylor and Adele. The numbers speak for themselves!!!

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 11, 2021

      Yaaaaaaaaaas!!! 💯

    • True Tea October 11, 2021

      None of them are “Queens” including Beyonce.

      And they’re not even the highest selling musical acts.

      Successful women…YES
      Queens? I think Not.

      Queens do a lot more than sell depressing music or screech & scream over tracks.

      Ask Rhianna!!!

        They’re certainly the QUEENS of their generation.

      • Daisy October 11, 2021

        @True Queen Rihanna wishes she were a Queen. Selling cheap makeup and underwear does not make one a Queen.

    • True Tea October 11, 2021

      For their fanbase, yes but since we’re talking numbers here…

      Rihanna is QUEEN! 👑

      And rightfully so since she has successfully taken on music & the business world.

    • True Tea October 11, 2021


      I can’t comment on the quality of her products but the numbers don’t lie. Rihanna has raked in more money than all the other girls.

      Rihanna was never afraid to take risks & hence why she is now the richest Entertainer behind Oprah.

      The others girls are out doing the absoloute most for Billboard entries. Rihanna to the other girls: Been there…done that, lol

        @True Tea Why don’t you read about Savage X Ferry’s’ deceptive marketing scam
        Rihanna is literally scamming folks out of their money and that’s how she became a billionaire.

    • Rafael Figueroa October 12, 2021

      Yaaass! I’ve always thought that Beyonce is overrated, don’t get me wrong she’s ultra successful and talented but she isn’t the queen, Rihanna, Adele, and Taylor are……

  8. Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 October 11, 2021

    YES Queen, show your POWER!

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 11, 2021


  9. Hmm…. October 11, 2021

    I’m only checking for Adele, Drake, Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa at this point. I’m tired of this snooze fest music.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 11, 2021

      Bye! 👋🏽💋

    • True Tea October 11, 2021


      Queens slay EVERYTHING Hunty!!!

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 11, 2021

        Only a Queen can sell more than 3m first week.

  10. Adele Fan October 12, 2021
