Taylor Swift’s latest album, “Folklore,” is holding onto the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart for the third week in a row, marking the first album by a solo woman to spend its first three weeks at No. 1 since 2018. The last time a solo female musician accomplished this was Swift herself, with her “Reputation” album back in 2017. “Folklore” is her eighth studio album.
The continued success of “Folklore” was aided last week by the CD sales in stores, with 136,000 album units sold in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 13. Before that, it was only available for digital download on her website and iTunes.
Folklore sold 1.3 million copies on its first day and 2 million copies in its first week globally.
