Taylor Swift Notches Beatles Record
Can anyone top Taylor Swift? Probably not, as the pop-country singer-songwriter has once again made history with her latest album, Red.
The album has entered its sixth non-consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and according to Yahoo! Chart Watch, which makes Taylor the first musician since the Beatles to chart six weeks at No. 1 with three consecutive releases. Swift’s 2008 release, Fearless, charted 11 weeks at No. 1, and her 2010 album, Speak Now, topped the chart for six weeks.
In comparison, the Beatles notched seven consecutive albums at No. 1, from Beatles ‘65 in January of 1965 to Abbey Road in November of 1969.
