While Swift has set a new personal record, the overall highest record still belongs to The Beatles. This legendary band’s albums have topped the Billboard 200 chart for a total of 132 weeks. Meanwhile, Presley, with 67 weeks, holds the second position among solo artists and the third position overall.

“1989 (Taylor’s Version)” sold 98,000 equivalent album units in the week ending December 28, 2023. According to Luminate and Billboard’s report, this figure is nearly half of the peak holiday shopping season, marking a 28% decrease from the previous week. Among the 98,000 units, 61,000 were pure album sales. This is attributed to a surge in last-minute Christmas gift purchases.

Mariah Carey’s Christmas album sits at eighth place, Swift’s 2022 release “Midnights” at ninth place, and Pentatonix’s “Greatest Christmas Hits” at tenth place (also its highest position to date).

In conclusion, with her latest achievement in the last week of 2023, America’s former country music princess has wrapped up a truly triumphant year.
