Taylor Swift Extends Artist 100 No. 1 Record, Jung Kook & Jimmy Buffett Make Moves in Top 10

Taylor Swift spends a record-extending 85th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Nov. 18), thanks to the continued success of her latest rerecorded LP, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), as well as nine additional albums on the Billboard 200 and 16 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.


1989 (Taylor’s Version) spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with 245,000 equivalent album units earned in its second frame, according to Luminate. A week earlier, it debuted with 1.653 million equivalent album units — the largest one-week total since the debut of Adele’s 25 (3.482 million; Nov. 15, 2015).

Here’s a recap of Swift’s current Billboard 200-charting albums.

On the Hot 100, Swift charts 16 total songs, including 15 from 1989 (Taylor’s Version). Her other charting song, “Cruel Summer” (from from 2019’s Lover), rebounds for a third week at No. 1.

Jung Kook jumps from No. 100 to No. 2 on the Artist 100, the 98-position vault marking the greatest leap in the chart’s nearly decade-long history. He reaches a new high thanks to the opening week of his first solo LP, Golden, which arrives at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 210,000 units. The set’s “Standing Next to You” concurrently debuts at No. 5 on the Hot 100, becoming his sixth solo entry outside BTS, and third top 10, after “Seven,” featuring Latto (No. 1), and “3D,” with Jack Harlow (No. 5).

Plus, the late Jimmy Buffett re-enters the Artist 100 at No. 7, sparked by his new album, Equal Strain on All Parts. The set opens at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 with 53,000 units, marking his 14th top 10.

The Artist 100 measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay and streaming to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
