Here’s a look at the acts with at least 40 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, since March 25, 1956, when the chart started running on a regular basis:
Les Beatles, 132
Elvis Presley, 67 ans
Garth Brooks, 52 ans
Michael Jackson, 51
Taylor Swift, 51 ans
Whitney Houston, 46 ans
The Kingston Trio, 46
Presley, who died in 1977, has a total of 10 chart tops, and was last at No. 1 in 2002 with the best of all Elv1s: 30 achievements # 1, who managed three weeks at No.1.
Brooks has nine leaders and finished last in pole position in 2013 for a week with the set All blame on my roots: five decades of influences.
Jackson has six No.1s, with the bulk of his 51 weeks at No.1 generated by Thriller’s 37-week reign in 1983-84. Jackson was the last No. 1 with the soundtrack of Michael Jackson, that’s it in 2009 (for one week). It was released a few months after his death earlier this year.
Houston has four No.1s, three of which each record at least 11 weeks in the lead (his eponymous debut, with 14 in 1986; Whitney, with 11 in 1987; The bodyguard soundtrack, with 20 in 1992-93). She was the last No. 1 in 2009 (for a week) with her last studio album released before her death in 2012, I am looking at you.
The Kingston Trio recorded their five No.1s between 1958 and 1960. The group finished last No.1 on December 26, 1960 with Chain along.
