Plus, Meek Mill and Brandi Carlile soar to the top 10.
Taylor Swift leaps from No. 16 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Oct. 16), reclaiming her status as the top musical act in the U.S. for a record-extending 49th total week.
Swift rebounds as her LP Fearless (Taylor's Version) returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a second week on top, nearly six months after its release, following the Oct. 1 arrival of its signed CD available only in Swift's webstore and its corresponding vinyl LP. The set earned 152,000 equivalent album units and sold 67,000 vinyl albums in the week ending Oct. 7, according to MRC Data, marking the fourth-largest week for a vinyl album since MRC Data began tracking music sales in 1991. Swift's own Evermore holds the record, with 102,000 sold in its first week of availability on vinyl (June 12 chart), followed by Olivia Rodrigo's Sour (76,000; Sept. 4) and Billie Eilish's Happier Than Ever (73,000; Aug. 14).
