Taylor Swift, who has had 13 albums debut at No. 1 since 2008’s Fearless, once again has the No. 1 album in America with the release of 1989 (Taylor’s Version). It’s also her biggest sales week ever, with 1.653 million units, which tops her previous high of 1.287 for the original release of 1989, Billboard reports.

The No. 1 debut of the re-recorded 1989 marks the biggest sales week for any album since Adele’s 25 in 2015. It’s the sixth largest sales week ever behind albums by Adele, *NSync, Eminem, and Backstreet Boys. According to Billboard, sales of the album were driven by its many collectible editions and vinyl variants.

Swift recently hit another chart milestone earlier this year when “Cruel Summer” went No. 1 on the songs chart, which tied her with Stevie Wonder and Janet Jackson for the ninth most No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.
