Swift just tied the late Whitney Houston’s record for the most weeks on the Billboard 200 among the female artists.

Taylor Swift just reached her sixth week at No. 1 for her new album. She’s had a total of 46 weeks at the top of the charts.

Whitney earlier made history among female artist when her 2009 album “I Look to You” put her at 46 weeks at No. 1.

The “I Will Always Love You” singer had four No. 1 albums compared to Swift’s seven chart-toppers.

The Beatles hold the record among male and female artists, with 132 weeks of albums at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Swift, 30, dropped her surprise eighth studio album on July 24 with only a few hours notice.

The singer didn’t release any singles in advance of the project in order to campaign for the top spot, in contrast to her past six albums.

“Most of the things I had planned this summer didn’t end up happening, but there is something I hadn’t planned on that DID happen. And that thing is my 8th studio album, ‘folklore’. Surprise,”  Swift wrote on Instagram hours before the album release.

The Grammy Award winner added: “The times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty I can get on board with. Love you guys so much.”
