Taylor Swift ties Michael Jackson’s U.S. albums chart feat

Taylor Swift has tied Michael Jackson for the fourth most weeks at number one on the U.S. albums chart after taking Evermore back to the top.

The pop star’s surprise follow-up to last year’s bestselling release Folklore was released in December and spent two weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 at the end of 2020.

Playboi Carti’s Christmas Eve release Whole Lotta Red knocked Swift’s album off the top last week but it’s back to claim a third week at number one.

Taylor now has a total of 51 weeks at the top of the Billboard 200, tying Jackson for the fourth-most weeks at the summit – only the Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Garth Brooks have more. Swift is only one week shy of tying Brooks for third place with a full year’s worth of number ones, 52.
