Taylor Swift Spends Sixth Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 With ‘The Tortured Poets Department:’ Plus, Twenty One Pilots and RM debut in the top 10.

 

Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department spends a sixth straight and total week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated June 8), as the title earned 175,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending May 30 (down 54%), according to Luminate.

 

Taylor Swift Spends Sixth Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 With ‘The Tortured Poets Department:’ Plus, Twenty One Pilots and RM debut in the top 10.

Tortured Poets is the first album to spend its first six weeks at No. 1 since Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time led for its first 12 weeks a year ago (March 18-June 3, 2023-dated charts). Among Swift’s collection of No. 1s, Tortured Poets ties Folklore for the most weeks at No. 1 from its debut with six weeks each.

With 175,000 units earned in Tortured Poets’ sixth week, the set scores the largest sixth-week for any album since Adele’s 25 earned 363,000 units in its sixth frame (chart dated Jan. 16, 2016). Swift adds her 75th career week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, extending her record among soloists. (Elvis Presley has the second-most among soloists, with 67.) The total encompasses her 14 leaders. (She’s tied with Jay-Z for the most No. 1s among soloists.)

Also in the top 10 of the new Billboard 200, Twenty One Pilots’ Clancy debuts at No. 3 with the biggest week for any rock album in 2024 (in either equivalent album units or traditional album sales), while RM’s Right Place, Wrong Person launches at No. 5 with his biggest debut week (in both units and sales).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new June 8, 2024-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on June 4. For all chart news, follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both X, formerly known as Twitter, and Instagram.

Of The Tortured Poets Department’s sixth-week unit sum of 175,000, SEA units comprise 133,000 (down 20% — it’s No. 1 on Top Streaming Albums; its SEA units equal 173.65 million on-demand official streams of the deluxe edition’s 31 songs), album sales comprise 41,000 (down 81%) and TEA units comprise 1,000 (down 30%). Billie Eilish’s Hit Me Hard and Soft is a non-mover at No. 2 in its second week on the list, earning 145,000 equivalent album units (down 57%). It’s the largest second week for any Eilish album, a week after she scored her top weekly career total with the set (339,000).

Twenty One Pilots’ new studio album, Clancy, bows at No. 3 with 143,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, albums sales comprise 113,000 (making it the top-selling album of the week and No. 1 on Top Album Sales), SEA units comprise 29,000 (equaling 38.64 million on-demand official streams of the set’s songs) and TEA units comprise a negligible sum.

Clancy scores the biggest week, by both units and album sales, for any rock album in 2024. (Rock albums are defined as those that are eligible for, or have charted on, Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart.) Clancy marks the fourth top 10-charting set for Twenty One Pilots. The band previously visited the region with Scaled and Icy (No. 3 in 2021), Trench (No. 2, 2018) and Blurryface (No. 1, 2016)
