(note- this has been updated to include the chart dated Nov.25, 2017 where Lana's Born to Die now has spent 297 weeks on the chart

 

note- this thread is updated each week-

background on this thread-

This thread started as of the week of May 27, 2017 Billboard magazine chart issue,

with Lana Del Rey has now hit 275 weeks on the Billboard 200 Album charts (this is the every genre, all album, old and new from the first charts to the current chart, best selling)

 

With the 275th week, it is equal to a US Baseball player hitting their 500th Home run.

 

NOTE- again, this thread  updated weekly as the week totals increase)- NOW UPDATED AS OF THE Nov.25, 2017 CHART

 

Lana Del Rey now proudly is in the Top 25 Albums of all time based on weeks on the chart, more than 5 years.

And is now #3 for all female artists, all genres.

 

This achievement cannot be taken away, each week on the 200 adds to the length of time,

and though like in baseball, others may reach the level, each person on the list has achieved history very few have.

 

The Top Albums by chart week of all time- (updated weekly)

as of Nov.25, 2017 chart

CONGRATULATIONS TO LANA ON THIS ALL-TIME BILLBOARD MAGAZINE CHART HISTORY IMMORTALITY.

And the #3 most weeks on chart from a female artist

 

(note- someone said this originally was my 1000th post, so what better way than to celebrate music history

 

It's a major music accomplishment.

and it can't be taken away. As the weeks/years go on, others will join the list, but one on the list, will always be on the list.

 

NOTE- Those that say (STILL ON CHARTS) Mean they are currently in the Billboard 200 album chart and accumulating more weeks.

 

this was last edited Nov.14, 2017 for the chart issue dated Nov.25, 2017

and Lana holds with 297 weeks on the chart

All the records need to be listened whole. Waiting for a box set vinyl of all 400 songs not on any lp

Keep these updates going.

Did it not drop off at one point for only one week? Sad, dark times.

Well deserved, on many different levels.
A unique album in terms of production (yes I said it), themes, concepts, and visuals...
Definitely one that had some type of influence on the musical landscape.

Yay BTD !

Holy hell. So happy to stan her and so proud of her, to have gone from open mics and songwriting competitions to creating an album that's still charting 5+ years after its release and is now in the top 25 all-time list for charting longevity. Truly queen.

This has been updated to include the brand new Billboard 200 chart week dated June 17, 2017

 

Lana's Born to Die now has 278 weeks.

 

Two interesting notes about this weeks chart-

First, Pink Floyd's Dark Side reenters so it now has 929 weeks

 

and two,

 

This was the week Lana was suppose to release originally Lust for Life.

Knowing the sales figues that the surprise drop of Bryson Tiller received debuting at #1 USA

and the fact that SGT Pepper's rerelease (reentered at #3 USA) had a much lower than expected total (with very few streams/downloads)

Based just on Lana's Honeymoon totals, Lana would have definitely debuted at #1 in the USA had it been released this week.

Just an interesting what-if.

 

anyhow, 278 weeks and counting. About  14 to17 more weeks and Born to Die will be in the Top 20 of all time.

May I ask what the top twenty are currently? Also, aren't there two lists for this (one being for most consecutive weeks and then most weeks non-consecutively)? If so, what's Lana's current ranking on both? (I'm bad with looking this stuff up, everything's so confusing).

@electra- the Album 200 is for all records weekly old and new, the 200 Best sellers

The longevity is total weeks on the Album 200. And in any week any album can fall off and later reappear doesn't have to be consecutive.

The chart includes all genres, and is an actual true read of the 200 Albums this week and the list is from the 1950s to the present.

(they have specialty charts, but those charts are not necessarily one of the biggest 200, like the Top 50 Vinyl records (but every vinyl record sold

is included in the all inclusive Album 200 (and it's the Album 200 that are considered the Official Charts and there are chart books published and

they only include for albums, the 200 list.)

 

As I wrote in the OP-

The 275 number would be comparable to a baseball legend hitting 500 home runs

And the list being cumulative, more people will reach 275, same as in baseball, where more people in the future will hit 500 home runs,

but no one can ever take away anyone reaching that level.

(Note- I use baseball stats, because they have been kept since the late 1800s, the list is the list and no one is ever removed from the list for any reason.

It is written in stone. (They do call Billboard the Music Industry Bible.  LOL)

 

and sometime next spring, Lana willing, Lana  should surpass Carole King as the #2 female album of longevity.

 

But even if it drops off next week, the 275 level is immortal.

and I specifically waited until 275 weeks to post this thread.  

 

ITunes has their chart, but that only includes of course ITunes. The Billboard200 incorporates all the different methods in one chart.

 

Probably the only worry would be if Billboard ceased to publish one day in the future and no one bought it and continued it.

That would probably be "The Day the Music Died"
