To make the accolade even more profound, in doing so, the "Cardigan" singer surpassed the late and great Whitney Houston's record for the most cumulative weeks in the top spot, among female artists, across all of her chart-topping albums, Billboard reported.

With "Folklore" returning to the No. 1 spot for the seventh time, it brings her total weeks in the top slot, across all of her albums, to 47, setting a new record for women in music.

Houston, who held the record since 1987, has a sum of 46 weeks atop the chart.
