Olivia Rodrigo interrupts Taylor Swift’s chart-topping spree
Taylor Swift is dominating album sales again, but a fellow musician, Olivia Rodrigo, just stopped her from making history. Swift claims the top four spots on both Billboard’s Top Album Sales and Vinyl Albums charts with her latest release, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), Midnights, Lover and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). However, Rodrigo’s Guts snags the final spot on both charts, preventing Swift from achieving a complete takeover.
This near-sweep comes on the heels of Swift’s vinyl chart history-making moment just last week, where she held the top five spots. Notably, the identical top five on both album and vinyl charts suggests a surge in vinyl sales across the US.
Despite missing out on a full chart sweep, Swift’s success remains impressive. Her re-recordings and older albums continue to resonate with fans, propelling her to the top of the charts yet again. While Rodrigo’s Guts disrupts her dominance this week, Swift’s reign over the music industry appears far from over.
