Taylor Swift’s Evermore spent a third non-consecutive week atop in a notably slow week on the Rolling Stone Top 200 Albums Chart.

Swift’s ninth studio album, and her second surprise album of 2020, took Number One with just 53,800 units, marking the lowest total for a Number One album in the chart’s history. Pop Smoke’s Shoot For the Stars Aim For the Moon took Number Two, followed by Lil Durk’s sixth studio album The Voice at Number Three. The rest of the top 10 is populated by former chart toppers like Folklore (Number Four), Ariana Grande’s Positions (Number Five) and last week’s Number One, Playboi Carti’s Whole Lotta Red, which drops to Number Six.

The Rolling Stone 200 Albums chart tracks the most popular releases of the week in the United States. Entries are ranked by album units, a number that combines digital and physical album sales, digital song sales, and audio streams using a custom weighting system. The chart does not include passive listening such as terrestrial radio or digital radio. The Rolling Stone 200 Albums chart is updated daily, and each week Rolling Stone finalizes and publishes an official version of the chart, covering the seven-day period ending with the previous Thursday.

Two albums from MF DOOM enter the chart after the news of his death at age 49. Madvillain’s acclaimed 2004 studio album Madvillainy takes 105 on the chart, while DOOM’s Mm..Food enters at Number 170.
