Written by on October 27, 2020

Taylor Swift’s album Folklore has returned to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for an eighth nonconsecutive week, becoming the first album to sell a million copies in the U.S. in 2020. Folklore’s total album sales jump past 1 million (to 1.038 million), making it the first album to sell a million copies in 2020. It’s also the first album released in 2020 to sell a million.

Folklore was released on July 24 and debuted at No, 1 on Billboard 200. Swift’s last album, Lover, released in Aug 2019, was the only album to sell a million in the U.S. in 2019. It sold 1.09 million that year, of its now-total 1.22 million. Folklore and Lover are the only albums released in 2019 and 2020 to sell a million copies in the U.S.

Folklore is Swift’s ninth album to sell at least 1 million copies in the U.S. Those nine albums include all eight of her studio efforts, along with her Christmas release The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection.
