On the Billboard 200 Chart, Taylor Swift surpasses Elvis Presley as the Solo Artist with the Most Weeks at No. 1

Breaking yet another record, Taylor Swift has surpassed the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

With the release of her most recent album 1989 (Taylor’s Version), the 34-year-old “Anti-Hero” singer has now eclipsed Elvis Presley as the soloist with the most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Billboard revealed on Sunday.

Swift has topped the Billboard 200 for 68 weeks, surpassing Elvis Presley, who held the top spot for 67 weeks over the course of his ten albums from 1956 to 2002.

Her Fearless album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart in 2008 and remained there for 11 weeks in 2009, marked her first trip to the top of the chart. Her albums Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation, Lover, Folklore, Evermore, and Midnights added 47 more weeks to her peak chart position after that.

Swift has also made history thanks to her rerecorded albums. Swift added 10 more No. 1 hits to her list of the top 200 songs with Fearless (Taylor’s Version), Red (Taylor’s Version), Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), and 1989 (Taylor’s Version).
