Swift’s latest, “Folklore,” has sat on top for seven non-consecutive weeks, giving her a total of 47 weeks, one more than Houston.
Swift had a recent boost following the Academy of Country Music Awards, where she performed “Betty” off “Folklore” live and released it as a single shortly after.
Houston hit No. 1 with her “Whitney Houston” debut in 1986, and then with “Whitney,” “The Bodyguard” soundtrack and “I Look to You.”
Adele ranks third.
The Billboard 200 ranks the most popular albums in the US based on album sales. The October 3 chart will be posted Tuesday. Billboard also shares chart news on @billboard and @billboardcharts on Twitter and Instagram.
