As forecast, Taylor Swift’s 1989 claims an 11th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, tying Fearless as Swift’s longest-running No. 1 effort. (Fearless reigned atop the list in 2008 and 2009.)
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based onmulti-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). 1989 earned another 108,000 units in the week ending Feb. 8, according to Nielsen Music (up 7 percent).
1989, which released last year on Big Machine Records, has yet to leave the top two rungs of the weekly Billboard 200 since the album’s release 15 weeks ago.
Since 2000, only four albums have tallied at least 10 weeks at No. 1, and two of them are by Swift: 1989, Fearless, the Frozen soundtrack (13 weeks in 2014) and Adele’s 21 (24 weeks in 2011 and 2012).
As previously reported, Swift and Whitney Houston are the only two women in chart history to earn multiple albums with 10 weeks at No. 1.
