Taylor Swift has been knocked out by Drake and 21 Savage at number one in the album chart.
er Loss, the first UK title for 21 Savage, ended Swift’s two-week dominance at the top of the chart.
However, Swift’s single Anti-Hero remained at the top of the chart, marking three consecutive weeks and keeping her at the top of the chart for the longest time to date.
The track, which helped Swift break several chart records upon release, surpasses her 2017 single Look What You Made Me Do, which spent two weeks at number one.
This is partly because a new version of Anti-Hero featuring the Bleachers, her co-composer Jack Antonoff’s band, will be released this week.
21 Savage previously achieved top 40 success with his 2019 album I Am Greater Than I Was and his 2020 project with Metro Boomin, Savage Mode II.
Her Loss also became Drake’s fifth UK chart-topper to date, and third in three years.
Canadian rapper topped the table with Views (2016), Scorpion (2018), Dark Lane Demo Tapes (2020) and Certified Lover Boy (2021).
