Taylor Swift’s latest album Folklore doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.

For the sixth consecutive week, Folklore is No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, which makes it the album with the most weeks atop the list in almost four years.

Folklore has the most weeks at No. 1 since Drake’s Views was on top of the charts for 13 nonconsecutive weeks from May 21-October 8, 2016. Not only does Swift hit this record, but she also ties Whitney Houston for the most cumulative weeks at No. 1 among women.

Across Swift’s seven chart-topping albums, she’s had 46 cumulative weeks at No. 1. Adele follows Swift and Houston with the next-most weeks at No. 1 among women with 34 weeks. The Beatles have the most weeks at No. 1 with 132 weeks.

Folklore also surpasses Lil Baby’s My Turn for the most weeks at No. 1 in 2020.

The latest data shows that Folklore has collected 91,2000 album units which combines sales and streaming numbers.

Following Swift’s Folkore on the Billboard 200 are Pop Smoke’s Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, which holds the No. 2 spot, and Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die is at No. 3.
