Fiercely competitive week on the Billboard 200, Taylor Swift’s latest album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” clung to the number-one position for the seventh consecutive week, marking another historic milestone for the singer-songwriter. Swift’s album garnered 148,000 equivalent album units, a figure derived from a combination of record sales, individual track sales, and online streams, reflecting only a 16% dip from the previous week.

This impressive feat further solidifies Swift’s dominance in the music industry. Across her 14 chart-topping albums, she has now spent more weeks at number one than any other solo artist in history.

Meanwhile, K-pop sensation ATEEZ made a strong debut with “Golden Hour: Part 1,” securing the number-two spot with 131,000 units. Despite their strong showing, it wasn’t enough to surpass Swift’s enduring popularity.

Billie Eilish’s “Hit Me Hard and Soft” fell to third place but continued to demonstrate its staying power by amassing 117,000 units, a modest 19% drop from the previous week. Eilish’s 10-track collection remains a formidable presence on the charts.

In the fourth position, country star Morgan Wallen’s “One Thing at a Time” accumulated 71,000 units, maintaining a steady performance. Wallen’s consistency on the charts underscores his significant influence in the country music scene.

Rounding out the top five, fellow country artist Shaboozey enjoyed a breakthrough with his album “Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going,” which achieved 50,000 units. This milestone marks Shaboozey’s first foray into the top ranks of the Billboard 200, signaling a promising future in the music industry.
