Taylor Swift’s “Midnights” has returned to the top of the Billboard 200 albums list (dated Nov. 26), claiming a third nonconsecutive week at the high, one week after being supplanted by Drake and 21 Savage’s “Her Loss.”

According to Luminate and Billboard, the album sold 204,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. for the week of November 17 (a decrease of 32%). The album peaked at No. 1 for the first two weeks after release, dipped to No. 2 in the first week of “Her Loss,” and is now back at No. 1.

Since Adele’s “25” nearly seven years ago, “Midnights” is the first album, according to the announcement, to sell at least 200,000 units in each of its first four weeks of availability. Naturally, the announcement comes at the conclusion of a week that saw Swift making news for reasons that no one, save Ticketmaster’s rivals, would want for: The issue-plagued on-sale for her upcoming “Eras” tour saw millions of people (and bots) competing for tickets at once, causing a Ticketmaster website to become overloaded, lengthy wait times, and thousands of disappointed fans. In the end, the available tickets were so low that Ticketmaster decided to postpone the Friday general on-sale.

The former member of One Direction Louis Tomlinson, whose album Faith in the Future debuted at No. 5, had his highest-charting solo album to date. Bruce Springsteen’s collection of soul covers, “Only the Strong Survive,” debuted at No. 8, and Nas’ “King’s Disease III,” which debuted at No. 10, was his 16th top-10 album.

Other songs in the top 10 include “Un Verano Sin Ti” by Bad Bunny, which rises 4-3, “It’s Only Me” by Lil Baby, which reverses 3-4, and “Dangerous: The Double Album” by Morgan Wallen, which holds at Nos. 6 and 7, respectively.
