Taylor Swift Makes It An Eight In A Row Atop Billboard 200
Maybe DJ Khaled and Drake said it best: “No New Friends.” Applied to the current Billboard 200, the phrase is best attributed, “no new releases” of note. That said no one is shocked to hear that the invincible Taylor Swift rules the charts for an eighth non-consecutive week. Even with units and sales alike down from the previous week, 1989 still stood tall, selling 172,000 copies.

Swift was unopposed at the top spot, with the next closest album in sales (Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack) and impact (Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint) not coming anywhere close. 172,000 versus 70,000 copies ...

Cutting to the chase and the 'pure' sales total, Swift sold another 326,000 copies of 1989, impacting with an even more robust number of 'units'. Nobody seems to be able to 'shake off' Swift and if she was shakable, the industry would be left with a void - a "Blank Space" (get it?).
