On the Billboard 200 Chart, Taylor Swift passes Elvis Presley as the Solo Artist with the Most Weeks at No. 1


Swift has topped the Billboard 200 for 68 weeks, surpassing Presley’s 67 weeks at the top from 1956 to 2002.

Breaking yet another record, Taylor Swift has surpassed the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

With the release of her most recent album 1989 (Taylor’s Version), the 34-year-old “Anti-Hero” singer has now eclipsed Elvis Presley as the artist with the longest run of weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Billboard said on Sunday.

Swift has topped the Billboard 200 for 68 weeks, surpassing Elvis Presley, who held the top spot for 67 weeks throughout the course of his ten albums from 1956 to 2002.

Her Fearless album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard list in 2008 and remained there for 11 weeks in 2009, marked her maiden trip to the top of the chart. The releases of Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation, Lover, Folklore, Evermore, and Midnights contributed 47 more weeks to her peak chart position after that.

Swift has also made history because to her rerecorded albums. Swift added 10 more No. 1 hits to her list of the top 200 songs with Fearless (Taylor’s Version), Red (Taylor’s Version), Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), and 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

Swift has a ways to go before surpassing The Beatles, who have spent 132 weeks at the top of the charts throughout their 19 albums between 1964 and 2001, even though she may have eclipsed the “Hound Dog” singer.

The Grammy winner created history last month when she tied Drake for the most number of Billboard Music Awards ever when she won ten of the awards during the ceremony on November 19.

Swift remarked, “Well, it’s unreal,” during a rehearsed address while traveling on her Eras Tour. “I’m speaking directly to the fans about the fact because you guys have bestowed upon me ten Billboard Awards. Without you, none of this would occur.”

“The Billboards build anything off of what you are listening to and what you are passionate about, and I’m thrilled that all of you made the tour, The Eras Tour, so magical,” she said as she continued to convey her gratitude to her fans. You watched the film and showed interest in my re-recordings. I really adore you so much.”

With her The era Tour, which began in Arizona in March and went on to perform 35 shows before ending in Los Angeles in August, the “Karma” singer has experienced enormous success. Since then, the “Lavender Haze” vocalist has completed a four-show run in Mexico City, her first time doing headline performances in the nation, and will close up the 2023 tour early Argentina and Brazil in November.

Swift capitalized on the excitement around the tour by releasing Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, which debuted to record-breaking ticket sales in the United States, totaling $92.8 million. This made it the fifth-biggest beginning for any theatrical film of the year.
