Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Now One of Only Four Albums by Women to Spend 300 Weeks on Billboard 200 Chart

Taylor Swift’s 1989 joins an elite club, as the album racks up a 300th week on the Billboard 200 chart. In turn, it becomes the fourth album by a woman to spend at least 300 weeks on the tally.

1989 debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated Nov. 15, 2014, and has rarely been absent from the list since its arrival: It’s been on the chart for 300 of the 307 weeks since it bowed. On the new Billboard 200 chart dated Sept. 19, where 1989 clocks its 300th week, the album ranks at No. 116.

1989 joins Adele’s 21 (482 weeks, the most ever on the chart for an album by a woman), Lana Del Rey’s Born to Die (364) and Carole King’s Tapestry (318) as the only albums by women to have spent at least 300 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart.

The all-time leader in terms of total weeks on the chart remains Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon with 950 weeks. It is also, thus, the longest charting album by a group. In terms of solo male artists, Eminem’s Curtain Call: The Hits, has the lead, with 495 weeks.
