The superstar last led in December 2017.
Taylor Swift rises 3-1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Sept. 7) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a record-extending 37th total week, and for the first time since December 2017, thanks to the massive opening week of her new LP, Lover.
Lover launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 867,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, the biggest one-week sum since her own reputation in 2017, and the new set is already the top-selling album of 2019 in the U.S. Thanks to the attention surrounding the new release, three of Swift's previous sets, 1989, Reputation and Red, also land on the Billboard 200, at Nos. 92, 96 and 183, respectively.
