News Update: With 14 #1 albums in Billboard 200 history, Taylor Swift, the Superstar Pop Singer, now shares the record for most soloists with Jay-Z.

Nobody is surprised that Taylor Swift is the official number one! According to Billboard, The Tortured Poets Department became the 14th No. 1 album in history when it made a huge No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums list on May 4. In the nearly 70-year history of the chart, she is tied with Jay-Z for the most No. 1s among soloists.

The Tortured Poets Department debuted with a total of 2.61 million equivalent album units in its first week.

Traditional album sales (purchases of digital download albums, CDs, vinyl and cassettes) comprise 1.914 million of that sum, with vinyl sales alone representing 859,000. The 31 songs on the deluxe edition of the album generated 891.34 million on-demand official streams.

It now notches the largest streaming week for an album ever, the second-largest week for an album since the Billboard 200 began measuring by units in December 2014 (only Adele’s 25 sold more in 2015), the third-largest sales week by traditional album sales in the modern era (following Adele’s 25 and *NSYNC No Strings Attached in 2000), and the largest sales week for an album on vinyl in the modern era.

The Tortured Poets Department is the top-selling album of 2024.

According to Republic Records, among many other incredible achievements, Taylor Swift broke her own record for the most single-day Spotify artist catalog streams worldwide (380 million), making her the only musician to have seven albums launch with over a million units sold in their first week.
