As previously reported, the set launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 2.61 million equivalent album units earned in its opening week, according to Luminate. That’s the second-biggest week by that metric since Billboard began measuring the week’s most popular albums by equivalent album units in 2014, after Adele’s 25 (3.482 million, Dec. 12, 2015).

As Swift earns her 14th career Billboard 200 No. 1 album, she ties Jay-Z for the most among soloists. Overall, only The Beatles have more (19).

Further, all 31 songs from the deluxe version of The Tortured Poets Department debut on the latest Hot 100, including the entire top 14 – the biggest takeover ever from No. 1 on down. Here’s a recap (all of which are debuts except where noted):

In the chart’s 65-year history, that’s the most among women in a single week. Overall, only Morgan Wallen has charted more songs – 36 – in one week, when his album One Thing at a Time opened atop the Billboard 200 dated March 18, 2023.

Further, Swift charts 26 songs in the latest Hot 100’s top 40, a new one-week record. She surpasses the 22 that Drake logged on the Oct. 21, 2023, tally, when his most recent album, For All the Dogs, debuted atop the Billboard 200.

Plus, with 15 songs in the Hot 100’s top 20, Swift ties Drake for the most entries in the region in a single week. He charted 15 of the top 20 on the chart dated Nov. 19, 2022, as Her Loss, with 21 Savage, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Notably, Drake got in the way of Swift claiming 16 of the top 20 this week: his new single, “Push Ups,” enters at No. 19.

With 31 debuts, Swift ups her career total to 263 Hot 100 entries. That’s the most among women and the second-most overall, after Drake’s 330 (he adds a new entry this week, with “Push Ups”). Of those, 12 have hit No. 1 and 59 have hit the top 10 (the second-most, after Drake’s 77).
