Most Billboard 200 No. 1 Albums By Artist
The Beatles rule as the act with the most No. 1s on the Billboard 200 since 1963, as the Fab Four have tallied 19 chart-toppers. That mighty sum was mostly accrued in the 1960s, when the pop/rock quartet notched its first 13 leaders, including its first No. 1, Meet the Beatles! (No. 1 for 11 weeks in 1964). The group scored its most recent four leaders with three retrospective/archival projects.
The list of acts with the most No. 1s on the Billboard 200 albums chart was compiled from the charts dated Aug. 17, 1963 through Oct. 10, 2015. (Aug. 17, 1963 is the date when Billboard's two separate pop album charts for stereo and mono recordings joined to become one all-encompassing weekly chart.)
