Taylor Swift's folklore spent its sixth week at the top of the Billboard 200 chart, officially tying her with late music icon Whitney Houston as the two women with the most cumulative weeks at No. 1. With 46 weeks total, the feat spans across all of Swift's albums combined. For Houston, who was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year, her self-titled debut, her sophomore album Whitney, The Bodyguard soundtrack and I Look to You make up her record. Following Houston and Swift, Adele has the next-most weeks at No. 1 for a woman, with 34 weeks.

The feat also means folklore has spent more weeks at No. 1 than any other album this year, edging out Lil Baby's My Turn, and is the longest running No. 1 since Drake's Views in 2016. Last month, the album hit another milestone, netting the biggest sales week of the year with 846,000 units sold.
