Taylor Swift: Equals Michael Jackson's record

January 11, 2021

Taylor Swift is expanding its dominance in the Billboard 200.

Taylor Swift's "Evermore" returns for the third week in the first place of the American Billboard 200 and gives the pop star a great milestone.

The 31-year-old singer has been in No. for a total of 51 weeks. 1 on the Billboard 200 with eight of its nine albums, a number that equals Michael Jackson's historic performance.

Taylor Swift and Michael Jackson are fourth on the list of artists who have remained at the top of the Billboard 200 for the most weeks (51), behind Garth Brooks (52), Elvis Presley (67) and the Beatles who hold the absolute record with 132 weeks.

The pop star has the potential to move up to third place in the standings and equal or even surpass Garth Brooks, as this is only the fourth week of "Evermore"'s presence on the Billboard 200.

Taylor Swift's ninth album debuted at No. 1 of the chart and remained in first place for two consecutive weeks, before falling for only one week to No. 2, when he was at the top of the "Whole Lotta Red" of the Playboi Carti.

Taylor Swift has been at the top of the Billboard 200 for 11 weeks over the last five and a half months.

Before the three weeks of "Evermore" at the top, he had stayed for eight weeks in total at No. 1 "Folklore", launching the singer in the ranking of artists who have dominated most weeks in the first place of the Billboard 200.
