Taylor Swift Ties Michael Jackson for Fourth-Most Weeks at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart | Billboard

Seven of Swift’s eight No. 1 albums have spent more than a week at No. 1: Fearless (11, 2008-09), Speak Now (six, 2010-11), Red (seven, 2012-13), 1989 (11, 2014-15), Reputation (four, 2017-18), Folklore (eight, 2020) and Evermore (three, so far; 2020-21). Her only album to log just a solitary week in charge was 2019’s Lover.

Houston has four No. 1s, with three of them each logging at least 11 weeks in the lead (her self-titled debut, with 14 in 1986; Whitney, with 11 in 1987; The Bodyguard soundtrack, with 20 in 1992-93). She was last No. 1 in 2009 (for one week) with her final studio album released before her death in 2012, I Look To You.

The Kingston Trio logged all five of its No. 1s between 1958 and 1960. The group was last No. 1 on Dec. 26, 1960 with String Along.
