September 15, 2020
Taylor Swift's 1989 joins an elite club, as the album racks up a 300th week on the Billboard 200 chart. In turn, it becomes the fourth album by a woman to spend at least 300 weeks on the tally.
1989 debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated Nov. 15, 2014, and has rarely been absent from the list since its arrival: It's been on the chart for 300 of the 307 weeks since it bowed. On the new Billboard 200 chart dated Sept. 19, where 1989 clocks its 300th week, the album ranks at No. 116.
1989 joins Adele's 21 (482 weeks, the most ever on the chart for an album by a woman), Lana Del Rey's Born to Die (364) and Carole King's Tapestry (318) as the only albums by women to have spent at least 300 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart.
The all-time leader in terms of total weeks on the chart remains Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon with 950 weeks. It is also, thus, the longest charting album by a group. In terms of solo male artists, Eminem's Curtain Call: The Hits, has the lead, with 495 weeks.

September 15, 2020
A little over a year after Ava Max’s breakthrough single “Sweet But Psycho” peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June of 2019 - she’s coasting up the chart again with her new hit, “Kings & Queens.” The track’s success comes at the perfect time, as the pop singer/songwriter’s debut album, Heaven & Hell, will be released on Sept. 18.
What’s it been like for Max to see “Kings & Queens” climb up the charts? “I feel so grateful to even be releasing music and people are listening! Especially during a pandemic!” Max tells the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast.
“I know that a lot of people are struggling right now. Music, for me, is medicine. And I just couldn't hold it back anymore and I'm just very happy people are responding to it. Again, I'm just grateful for people that can relate to this song.”
While “Kings & Queens” is Max’s second Hot 100 hit, she’s been swiftly racking up massive streaming numbers of the past few years. Collectively, her songs have garnered 1.17 billion on-demand streams in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
