Taylor Swift, a name synonymous with breaking records and achieving unprecedented feats, has once again cemented her place in music history. This week, Swift has accomplished something truly remarkable: charting 5 albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 simultaneously, a feat only matched by one other artist in history.
By claiming five spots within the coveted top ten, Swift has become the first living artist to achieve this level of dominance on the Billboard 200. The only other artist to accomplish this was the legendary Prince, who posthumously filled five slots in the top ten after his passing in 2016.
Swift’s latest release, “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” has propelled her back to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, selling over 140,000 equivalent units and claiming the number one spot for the third non-consecutive time. Additionally, her 2022 album “Midnights” has climbed to number three, solidifying her presence in the top five alongside the resurgence of “Folklore” at number five.
Swift’s dominance extends to the lower half of the top ten, where “Lover” ascends from number eight to number six. Finally, her winning streak culminates with “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” leaping from number seventeen to number ten, months after its debut at the top.
This remarkable achievement echoes the historic feat of Prince in May 2016, when he became the first artist to occupy half of the top ten slots on the Billboard 200. While Prince tragically passed away before witnessing his monumental success, his legacy remains etched in music history for this unparalleled feat.
With five albums simultaneously gracing the top ten, Taylor Swift has once again proven her unparalleled influence and dominance within the music industry. This achievement solidifies her place as a true icon, leaving an indelible mark on the history of music.
