Taylor Swift spends a record-extending 82nd week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Oct. 28), thanks to nine albums on the Billboard 200 and three songs on the Billboard Hot 100, including her newly-crowned No. 1 song, “Cruel Summer.”

Leading Swift’s titles on the Billboard 200 is her 2019 set Lover at No. 8, with 52,000 equivalent album units earned Oct. 13-19, according to Luminate, followed by Midnights at No. 9. The latter spends a 52nd consecutive week in the top 10, encompassing its entire chart run. It becomes Swift’s second album to log its first full year in the top 10, after 1989, which spent its first 53 weeks in the region in 2014-15 (among 60 weeks in the top 10 total).

Here’s a recap of Swift’s current Billboard 200-charting albums.

Rank, Title:

No. 8, Lover

No. 9, Midnights

No. 14, Folklore

No. 18, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)

No. 19, 1989

No. 21, Reputation

No. 24, Red (Taylor’s Version)

No. 26, Evermore

No. 43, Fearless (Taylor’s Version)

On the Hot 100, “Cruel Summer” jumps from No. 9 to No. 1, becoming Swift’s landmark 10th leader. The coronation of the song – from Lover and promoted as a single this year – was helped by new mixes released during the latest tracking week, which also began with the Oct. 13 wide release of the concert film Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour. Swift joins 10 other acts with double-digit No. 1s, and ties Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder for the ninth-most in the list’s history.

She also becomes just the third act in history to earn at least 10 No. 1 songs on the Hot 100 and 10 No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, after the Beatles and Drake.

Meanwhile, Swift’s former Hot 100 No. 1 “Anti-Hero,” at No. 25, has now spent 52 weeks, or a full year, on the chart, becoming her first song to reach the milestone. It reigned for a personal-best eight weeks.

TOMORROW X TOGETHER re-enters the Artist 100 at No. 2, thanks to its new album The Name Chapter: Freefall. The set arrives at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 114,000 units, marking the act’s fourth top 10.

Plus, Offset re-enters the Artist 100 at No. 9 – marking his first week in the top 10 outside of Migos– powered by his new solo project, Set It Off. The album debuts at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 with 70,000 units, becoming his third solo top five set (apart from his output as a member of Migos). He also debuts two songs on the Hot 100: “Say My Grace” featuring Travis Scott (No. 48), and “Worth It” with Don Toliver (No. 92).

The Artist 100 measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay and streaming to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
