Taylor Swift’s Evermore returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200 charts

Taylor Swift is having Evermore success on the charts.

The 31-year-old pop megastar’s latest album – which originally debuted in December 2020 – has returned to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart for a fourth nonconsecutive week on top.

As the talented star sold 192,000 copies according to MRC Data, it marks the biggest sales week of 2021 and even surpasses the previous large sales week of the year as Swift’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version) sold 179,000 in its first week at the end of April.

Evermore’s fourth nonconsecutive week at No. 1 puts her cumulative total weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 across her entire discography at 53 weeks as she passed Garth Brooks who has had 52 weeks.

She now has the third most cumulative weeks with No. 1 albums behind Elvis Presley with 67 and The Beatles with 132.

Swift’s latest surge in album sales comes from multiple avenues including modern-era record-breaking vinyl LP sales (102,000), Swift-signed CDs and deep discounting on its digital album.
