Adele and Bruno nearing 1000 with only three albums each :dies:

Ed kinda too, without the collabs album he'd be at ~800 since it's already out, but multiply and divide are still slaying!

The fact that there's only 3 female artists in the top 22 is kinda :skull: 
Also Taylor will surpass Barbra soon at this pace :clap3:

So Drake could usurp Eminem at some point do we think? 

He'll surpass him in 36 weeks. Drake and Eminem chart 6 and 2 albums weekly respectively. In 36 weeks, Drake will have charted for 2,075 weeks while Eminem will have charted for 2,073 weeks.

 

It'll happen sooner if/when Drake releases an album comes this year. That will probably cause some of his older albums to re-enter the Billboard 200.

Ah, gotcha. Thank you! And thank you for compiling this list, it's really cool! I need to get into some of these artists' deep cuts because clearly they're doing something right :jamming:

Barbra Streisand proving once again she’s the greatest artist of all time.

Taylor Swift - 12 entries on the Billboard 200 (1,482 weeks)

 

Barbra Streisand - 62 entries on the Billboard 200 (1,883 weeks)

 

Taylor Swift and Drake both only have 12 entries on the Billboard 200. They're both the youngest acts with over 1,000 charted weeks and the acts with the least number of entries. Most acts with over 1,000 charted weeks have 20/30/40/50/60+ entries on the Billboard 200.

I’m literally a Swiftie. I don’t care about these stats, I know Barbra is an icon and so is Taylor. Barbra just has the upper hand because of her huge trophy case and voice.  Don’t bother replying if your just gonna be @Delusional.

I wasn't being shady or delusional. I was simply providing context.

And at the same time they have benefited from a change of billboard 200 rules.

True. Barbra's numbers are really impressive as well. Albums released 40-50 years didn't chart nearly as well as albums do now.
