Taylor Swift Extends Her Artist 100 Longevity Record at No. 1 Thanks to ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’

Taylor Swift spends a record-extending 84th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Nov. 11) thanks to the explosive chart start of her latest rerecorded LP, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), plus nine additional albums on the Billboard 200, and 22 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

1989 (Taylor’s Version) blasts in atop the Billboard 200, marking Swift’s 13th leader – extending her record for the most No. 1s among women – with 1.653 million equivalent album units earned in its opening week (Oct. 27-Nov. 2), according to Luminate. That’s not only the largest one-week total of 2023, but the biggest frame for any album since the debut of Adele’s 25 (3.482 million; Nov. 15, 2015). Of those 1.653 million units, 1.359 million were in traditional album sales, making it Swift’s largest week for a title. That sales sum is also the sixth-largest in a single week since Luminate began tracking music sales in 1991.
