Taylor Swift’s “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” is projected to retain first place on this week’s Billboard Top Album Sales and 200 charts. In doing so, it will secure a significant record for the Grammy-winning icon.

According to Hits Daily Double, “1989 (TV)” should sell another 80K US copies during the December 22-28 tracking period. With units from track sales and streams included, the album may generate 118K in total US consumption.

The former figure will earn “1989 (TV)” a fourth week at #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart, while the latter will be another for a fifth frame atop the Billboard 200.

More notably, the performance will earn Swift a 68th total week at #1 on the Billboard 200. That number will break the all-time record among solo acts. She and Elvis Presley are presently tied with 67 weeks atop the chart.
