Taylor Swift’s “Tortured Poets” Spends Tenth Week at No. 1

Taylor Swift is no stranger to ruling the Billboard 200 chart for weeks with each new album she shares with the world, and her latest is no exception. The Tortured Poets Department returned to No. 1 for its tenth consecutive week, helping Swift set several major milestones.

With 115,000 equivalent album units earned during its latest week on the chart, Tortured Poets easily cruised past the competition to make it to No. 1. The Secret of Us by Gracie Abrams is the only new album to give it a run for its money, but it eventually took the No. 2 spot with 89,000 equivalent album units earned.

Tortured Poets is Swift’s third album to spend at least ten weeks at No. 1 after 1989 and Fearless, and this number is quite historic. She’s the only artist to achieve this milestone this century, and she joins Whitney Houston, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and The Kingston Trio as only the fifth act in history with three or more albums to spend at least ten weeks at No. 1.

The Tortured Poets Department was originally released on April 19, and Swift went on to share several limited-edition versions of the album featuring demos and acoustic variants of its songs in an attempt to boost its success on the charts.
