Taylor Swift’s “Folklore” Has been No.1 for 6 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, making it the album with the most weeks atop the list in nearly four years. 

“Folklore” now has the most weeks at No. 1 since Drake’s “Views” ruled for 13 nonconsecutive weeks. Plus, Taylor ties Whitney Houston for the most cumulative weeks at No. 1 among women.

With “Folklore’s” 6th week at No. 1, Swift’s cumulative weeks at No. 1 across all of her seven chart-topping albums, now rises to 46. That ties Whitney Houston for the most weeks atop the chart by a woman in history. Whitney landed 4 No. 1 albums.

After Taylor and Whitney, Adele has the next-most weeks at No. 1 among women.

The all-time leader with the most weeks at No. 1 is The Beatles, with 132 weeks at No. 1. “Folklore” is Swift’s 5th album to log at least 6 weeks at No. 1, making her one of just two acts to have at least 5 albums each with 6 weeks at No. 1. Only The Beatles also managed to do that.
