Taylor Swift broke countless records with her tenth studio album Midnights, and she’s back at it again! Midnights returned to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart after the release of two deluxe editions, breaking Morgan Wallen’s No. 1 streak after twelve weeks.

Swift surged back to No. 1 after Midnights earned 282,000 equivalent album units during its latest week on the chart, scoring the second biggest week for an album in 2023, after Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time. This LP spent 12 consecutive weeks at No. 1 after its release, and Midnights is the first album that managed to knock it down to No. 2.

Swift’s latest LP managed to accomplish this feat after two deluxe editions hit the shelves on May 26: The Til Dawn Edition and The Late Night Edition. They offered a perfect mix of old and new songs, including “Hits Different”, “You’re Losing Me”, “Karma” ft. Ice Spice, and “Snow on the Beach” with more Lana Del Rey.

Midnights was originally released in October last year, and it spent five weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart during its initial run. It made history as the first album to ever spawn 10 top-ten songs on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same week, including the No. 1 lead single “Anti-Hero”.
