Los Angeles, Oct 28 (TIWN) Singer Taylor Swift has a reason to celebrate this year as her album, Folklore, has become the first million-selling album of 2020 in the US.

With another 57,000 copies sold in the U.S. in the tracking week ending Oct. 22, Folklore’s total album sales exceed 1 million (to 1.038 million), making it the first album to sell a million copies this year. It’s also the first album released in 2020 to sell a million.

In September, Folklore became the best-selling album of 2020 after spending six consecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart. Later that month, Swift also surpassed Whitney Houston for most cumulative weeks at No. 1 by a woman in the Billboard 200 chart. Swift's quarantine album had clocked seven non-consecutive weeks at the top, which gave the singer a career total of 47 weeks ruling the chart. Houston had 46 weeks, and Adele came in third place with 34 weeks.
