Taylor Swift beats Elvis Presley’s solo record for most weeks at No.1 on Billboard 200

Taylor Swift’s latest re-release, ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’, remained at the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200, and with that the superstar has officially surpassed Elvis Presley’s longstanding Billboard 200 chart feat for the solo artist with the most weeks to top the chart. It marks Swift’s 68th total week atop Billboard 200, according to tracking company Luminate, dated January 6, 2024.

1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ sold 98,000 equivalent album units in the US in the week ending December 28th, equaling the total combined weeks at No. 1 of Swift’s three previous re-recorded albums. According to Billboard Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) both topped the chart for two weeks upon their release with Red (Taylor’s Version) taking the spot for a single week.

While Swift has beaten Presley’s record for the most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 among solo artists, in order to surpass the all-time record she has awhile to go – that achievement is currently held by The Beatles, who maintain a significant lead with an impressive 132 weeks at the top of the chart.
