From Lana Del Rey to Ed Sheeran to The Beatles, a handful of titles all hit special milestones on the Billboard 200 by charting for 300 weeks or more, something very rarely seen…and it’s even less common for a trio of projects to make it to these marks all at the same time.
Here are five albums that made big moves on the Billboard 200 chart this week.
No. 22 – Luke Combs – This One’s For You
Country superstar Luke Combs broke out in a massive way with his debut album This One’s For You, which went on to make history on the country charts in a number of forms. He may have moved on to his sophomore release What You See Is What You Get (which currently ranks just a few spots above its predecessor at No. 18), but fans are still listening to his first release, and now it celebrates 150 weeks on the Billboard 200 and it’s amazingly still as high as No. 22.
No. 25 – Juice WRLD – Goodbye & Good Riddance
He may be gone, but Juice WRLD’s music continues to not only live on after him, but sell and stream very well. The rapper’s debut album Goodbye & Good Riddance has now spent 100 weeks on the Billboard 200, and it’s somehow still going strong at No. 25, actually improving this frame. The hip-hop staple currently owns a pair of rungs inside the top 40, as Death Race for Love improves to No. 40.
No. 60 – The Beatles – 1
The Beatles have nothing left to prove on any Billboard chart, but they continue to hit new highs and prove their incredible longevity constantly. This frame, their massively popular compilation 1 makes it to 416 weeks on the Billboard 200, or exactly eight years. The set, one of the 20 longest-charting titles in the history of the all-genre tally, remains the group’s effort with the most turns on the list.
Not far below 1, Abbey Road makes a home at No. 95.
No. 181 – Ed Sheeran – x
British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has a knack for producing albums that don’t just send a number of singles toward the top of the Hot 100, but which find a way to hold on and continue charting on the Billboard 200 for years. His sophomore effort x has now occupied a spot on the albums roster for 300 weeks, and it’s one of three charting titles this frame, as ÷ (Divide) and No. 6 Collaborations Project land at Nos. 65 and 82, respectively.
No. 200 – Lana Del Rey – Born to Die
As the general public deals with having to stay inside and plenty of troubles connected to the state of the world, many fans of Lana Del Rey have turned to her debut full-length Born to Die to help them cope with their troubles. The project has now managed to spend 350 weeks on the Billboard 200, making it one of the longest-charting albums by a female musician in U.S. history.
