Billboard Hot 200 Chart

She’s done it again! Taylor Swift continues to break record after record. This time she has become the first solo artist to simultaneously have eleven albums on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart.

In this week alone Swift has earned her twelfth number one album on the Billboard Chart with ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)‘. This broke another record, surpassing Barbra Streisand who previously held the most number one albums amongst female artists on Billboard.

According to Billboard, since August of 1963, the origin of the Billboard Music Chart, Taylor Swift is “the only living act with six of the top 20 songs, the only act to have placed nine simultaneous albums in the top 40 and the only living act with 10 of the top 100 songs”.

Here are all of Taylor Swift’s albums that are currently on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart:

  • “No. 1 – Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)
  • No. 5 – Midnights
  • No. 7 – Lover
  • No. 10 – Folklore
  • No. 18 – Red (Taylor’s Version)
  • No. 19 – 1989
  • No. 21 – reputation
  • No. 23 – Fearless (Taylor’s Version)
  • No. 38 – Evermore
  • No. 67 – Speak Now
  • No. 138 – Taylor Swift”

According to Billboard, the only other artists to have surpassed this number are Prince, who had thirteen albums on the chart shortly after his death, and The Beatles with fourteen albums after the 50th anniversary of their first performance and the last two living members of the band performing together for the occasion.
