U.K. CHARTS: TAYLOR MADE
12/18/20

Taylor Swift claims a rarely seen feat of landing two chart-topping albums within a calendar year as Evermore (EMI) debuts at #1 on this week’s U.K. Official Albums Chart. At singles, Mariah Carey ekes out a second week at #1.

Swift, whose Folklore spent three weeks at #1 in August, is the first artist in four years to hold the #1 spot with two different albums in a calendar year. David Bowie scored two #1s across January and February 2016 with Blackstar (Columbia) and Best of Bowie (EMI) following his death.

As Evermore, the most downloaded and streamed album of the week, hits #1, it becomes Swift’s sixth chart-topper in eight years. Among female artists, she surpasses Madonna’s six #1s over the course of 11 years. Only Robbie Williams and Westlife have scored six #1 albums in a shorter time period, six years.

Swift also registered the three highest new entries of the week at singles: “Willow” is #3 (Swift’s 11th Top 5); “Champagne Problems opens at #15; and “No Body, No Crime” f/Haim lands at #19.
