Taylor Swift spends a record-extending 73rd week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated July 22), thanks to 11 albums on the latest Billboard 200 – including the list’s new No. 1 – and 25 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

On the Billboard 200, Swift’s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), her re-recorded version of her 2010 album Speak Now, debuts at No. 1 with 716,000 equivalent album units earned in its opening week (July 7-13), according to Luminate. That’s the biggest one-week total of 2023, and the largest since her own Midnights debuted with 1.578 million units in November. It becomes her 12th No. 1 album – pushing her past Barbra Streisand for the most among women.

Swift becomes just the third act in history to chart at least 11 albums on the Billboard 200 in a single week, following The Beatles and Prince.

Here’s a recap of Swift’s current Billboard 200-charting titles.
