Republic Records Has 8 of the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart

Mr. Nimbus | 01/08/2024

Republic Records has a big week in the Billboard 200 albums chart’s top 10, as the label is home to a whopping eight of the top 10 titles on the list dated Jan. 13. Since Luminate’s electronically monitored music data began powering the chart on May 25, 1991, no label had previously held eight of the top 10 on the Billboard 200 simultaneously. Republic previously boasted seven of the top 10 on six different occasions – all in 2023. The company first claimed seven of the top 10 on the Feb. 18, 2023-dated chart.

In the top 10 of the Billboard 200, Republic has the following albums: Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) at No. 1, Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time (released via Big Loud/Mercury/Republic) at No. 2, Drake’s For All the Dogs (OVO Sound/Republic) at No. 3, Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 (Young Money/Cash Money/Republic) at No. 4, Swift’s Midnights at No. 5, Swift’s Lover at No. 6, Noah Kahan’s Stick Season (Mercury/Republic) at No. 8 and Swift’s Folklore at No. 10.

Republic also stands tall with the Nos. 1-6 titles, marking the second time that the label has achieved the feat. Republic, which formed in 1995, is the only label to have held the entire top six (since August 1963, when the chart combined its previously separate mono and stereo rankings into one overall chart) and last did so on the Dec. 9, 2023-dated list.

The Billboard 200 chart dated Jan. 13 reflects the tracking week of Dec. 29, 2023-Jan. 4, 2024. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Jan. 13, 2024-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on Jan. 9.
