Rihanna's “ANTI“ spending its 250th week charting on the Billboard 200 (week of January 16 2021)

Rihanna’s latest studio album ANTI“ had left the Billboard 200 charts during Christmas sales, but it just returned even bigger. The album, which is almost five years old, climbs up 43 spots to #134 on the US album charts in the week of January 16. The album now spends its 250th week inside the hit list. “ANTI“ only needs ten more weeks to spend exactly five years on the charts.

Rihanna also extends the record for her longest-charting album ever. It is the 7th album by a female artist that spent the most weeks inside the Billboard 200. Rihanna would only need seven more weeks to surpass Taylor Swift’sFearless“ which is currently off the charts. Meanwhile “ANTI“ is already the longest charting album by a black female artist (Beyoncé’s I Am… Sasha Fierce“ comes second with 193 weeks).
