Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Remains at Top of Album Charts
Taylor Swift has scored a ninth week at the top of the U.S. album charts with her 2014 release 1989.
The “Blank Space” singer’s latest album, which was 2014’s bestseller, has now shifted 3.94 million albums in the U.S. alone, and is on course to become Swift’s fifth four-million seller.
Her pal Ed Sheeran is also enjoying longevity on the Billboard 200 countdown – his X album rises to two on the new chart, six months after its release in July.
Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint changes places with X, while Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour holds at four and hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd debut SremmLife at five.
Meanwhile, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” collaboration leads the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a second week.
Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” spends a second week at number two and Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” rounds out the top three.
The singer is still probably cashing in on all that good karma she seems to put into the universe.
