Taylor Swift & Whitney Houston Are Tied With Most Weeks at No. 1 by a Female Artist
Taylor Swift is certainly an icon in the making.
The singer has just earned a spot in music history next to Whitney Houston. Both of them are now reportedly tied for the most consecutive weeks at number 1 for a female artist on the Billboard 200 chart.
Taylor’s album, Folklore, has spent six weeks at the top of the music chart, giving the singer a total of 46 consecutive weeks at number one across her eight studio albums.
Whitney was the first female artist to reach the milestone, with 1985’s Whitney Houston, 1987’s Whitney, 1992’s The Bodyguard soundtrack, and 2009’s I Look to You.
Adele is trailing behind the two artists in the rankings with a total of 34 weeks at the number 1 spot, while The Beatles currently hold the overall record for the most weeks at number 1 with 132 total weeks at the top of the chart across their 19 qualifying albums, according to reports.
What a lineup, right?! Taylor is in good company.
