Taylor Swift sets Billboard record with most week at No. 1 for a woman

Taylor Swift’s 'Folklore' returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart this week, collecting a seventh nonconsecutive week atop the tally with that album, Billboard reports. Swift’s total weeks at Billboard's No. 1 now stands at 47 across all seven of her chart-topping albums, so she surpasses Whitney Houston’s longstanding record, among women, for the most cumulative weeks at No. 1 - Houston’s tally stays at 46. The all-time record with the most weeks at No. 1 is held by The Beatles, with 132 weeks at No. 1 across 19 albums. The male act (and solo artist) with the most weeks atop the list is Elvis Presley, with 67.
