Republic Records is having a stellar week on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Feb. 18), as the company lays claim to seven of the top 10 titles.

Since Luminate’s electronically monitored music data began powering the chart on May 25, 1991, no label has concurrently held seven of the top 10 on the Billboard 200. Republic previously shined with six of the top 10 on the Feb. 27, 2021-dated list.


In the top 10 of the Feb. 18 chart, Republic has Taylor Swift’s Midnights (No. 2), TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s The Name Chapter: TEMPTATION (released via BigHit/Imperial/Republic, No. 3), Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album (Big Loud/Republic, No. 4), Metro Boomin’s Heroes & Villains (Boominati/Republic, No. 5), The Weeknd’s The Highlights (XO/Republic, No. 6), Drake and 21 Savage’s Her Loss (OVO Sound/Republic, No. 8) and Shania Twain’s Queen of Me (new on the chart at No. 10).

“This historic moment is the result of an exceptional roster of artists and storytellers who continue to make a tremendous impact and shape culture around the world,” says Republic Records founder and chief executive officer Monte Lipman. “This achievement is also a credit to the tenacity of our dedicated and fiercely competitive team of executives and partners.” Lipman heads Republic alongside his brother, founder and chief operating officer Avery Lipman.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multimetric 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.
