The superstar’s 1989 album continues to rack up big chart achievements: Swift reigns atop the Billboard 200 for an 11th nonconsecutive week, while also collecting another airplay chart-topper with the set’s second single, “Blank Space.”
With an 11th week ruling the Billboard 200, 1989 ties Fearless as Swift’s longest-running No. 1. Since 2000, only four albums have spent at least 10 weeks at the summit. During that span, Swift’s two LPs are joined by Adele’s 21 (24 weeks) and the Frozen soundtrack (13).
On Top album Sales, 1989 is No. 2 (77,000 sold in the new week ending Feb. 8, according to Nielsen Music) behind Now 53 (99,000). It’s the first time the week’s top seller didn’t lead the Billboard 200 since it became a multimetric consumption chart in December.
“Blank Space” bounds 4-1 on Adult Contemporary in just its 11th week, giving Swift her fifth No. 1 on the chart. It’s also her fastest climber on the tally, surpassing the 12-week rise of “Shake It Off.”
