Taylor Swift becomes the first artist to log 45 weeks atop the Billboard Artist 100 chart, as she extends her record for the most time tallied at No. 1 (on the chart dated Jan. 16).
Dating to the Artist 100’s 2014 launch, Swift outpaces Drake, who ranks second with 31 weeks at the summit, followed by The Weeknd (20) and BTS and Ariana Grande (15 each).
Swift reigns on the strength of her two most recent LPs, December’s Evermore and July’s Folklore. The former logs its third week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 56,000 equivalent album units, according to MRC Data, while the latter places at No. 11 with 29,000 units, after spending eight weeks on top.
