For the second consecutive week ending Dec 24, Taylor Swift has remained on top of the Billboard 200, with her album Evermore which garnered 169,000 equivalent album units, as per Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Last week it was at the same spot with 329,000 units in the U.S. This album is the companion set to the album Folklore, which had also reached the top of Billboard 200.
Paul McCartney, of Beatles fame hit the second spot, in his debut, McCartney III with 107,000 units. His musical album is the first to reach the top two, every decade, in the last sixty years. In the seventies, he was an eight-time winner of the top 2 spots and once in the nineties and in the 2000s. By the turn of the century, he retained these positions both in 2010s and 2020s. He has created many other records as well.
In this new Billboard, an earlier No. 1 album, Music to Be Murdered By, resurged from 199 to No.3. A surprise reissue, by Eminem, of a deluxe edition, with 16 extra tracks, called Music to Be Murdered By: Side B, was the reason why the album reached the third spot.
The chart ranks of Billboard 200 are calculated using U.S. based sales of albums based on multi-metric usage. Tracking units consist of album sales (CDs, vinyl LP editions), track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
