Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ Holds Second Week At No. 1
Taylor Swift’s Reputation album is holding the No. 1 spot strong for the second week in a row.
The album reportedly sold 256,000 copies in the week ending on Nov. 23, on top of its first week with 1.238 million sold, according to Nielsen Music.
According to Billboard, Swift is the first to spend more than a week at the No. 1 spot in four months, since Jay-Z’s 4:44 album at the end of July.
Reputation is also the first album by a female artist to hold the No. 1 spot for more than a week in over a year-and-a-half since Rihanna’s ANTI album in 2016, and the first female artist to stand at No. 1 for two weeks since Adele’s 25 at the end of 2015.
All numbers are based on sales of the actual album, in which Swift also marketed as a magazine packed with her personal poetry, exclusively at Target stores in the U.S. and Wal Mart stores in Canada. Unfortunately Reputation is still not available on streaming services as of yet, aside from the pre-released tracks “Look What You Made Me Do,” “…Ready For It?,” “Gorgeous,” and “Call It What You Want.”
