Taylor Swift close to breaking Whitney Houston's record in the charts
Los Angeles, California - Taylor Swift's records are breaking records! At 30, she is on her way to becoming the most successful female artist of all time. Her albums have topped the US charts for 46 weeks.
The superstar's most recent album – Folklore, a surprise July release – has been top of the US charts for six weeks.
Houston was the first female artist to reach the 46-week milestone with several hugely popular albums, including the soundtrack to The Bodyguard (1992).
But being on top is just what Taylor Swift does best: all 16 tracks from Folklore made it into the charts. It is only a matter of time until she's claims the no. 1 spot for herself.
