Exclusive : In the Billboard Charts, Olivia Rodrigo Prevents The Super Star Pop Singer


Taylor Swift’s albums are selling incredibly well at the moment—and not just her most recent release. The singer-songwriter dominates several of Billboard’s purchase-only rankings with a slew of successful projects, all of which are being snapped up in the thousands. This week, the superstar nearly made history on a pair of lists, but one fellow musician interjected and stopped her from doing so.

On both the Top Album Sales and Vinyl Albums charts, Swift nearly fills the entirety of the top five. She misses out on doing so—and making history yet again—by just one frustrating spot on both tallies. Olivia Rodrigo interrupts her reign on the two lists with her months-old title that is selling very well this holiday season.

Amazingly, the top five on both the Top Album Sales and Vinyl Albums charts look exactly the same. That suggests that vinyl made up a very large portion of all album purchases in the U.S. last week.

Swift claims the Nos. 1 through 4 spots on the two Billboard charts this week. She rules yet again with her most recent offering, 1989 (Taylor’s Version). That re-recording is followed quickly by Midnights (No. 2), Lover (No. 3), and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) (No. 4).

Rodrigo’s sophomore album Guts comes in at No. 5 on both charts, improving slightly from where it sat last week. Swift almost managed the top five, as her other collection Folklore dips slightly to No. 6. If things had worked out just a bit differently, she would have controlled the entire area.

Swift recently filled the five highest spots on the Vinyl Albums chart, and in doing so, she made history. When nobody could break up her string of bestsellers, the Grammy winner became the first solo artist and woman to own the top five at once. She joined Metallica as the only musical act to manage the showing.

Exness’ anniversary celebrations, hosted in Cyprus, were a reflection of its remarkable journey and success. Themed “15 Years of Exceptional Moments,” the celebrations paid tribute to the individuals whose contributions have been integral to its success: its partners, clients, and employees.

Close to one thousand esteemed guests from Asia, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the MENA region, were flown to Cyprus to celebrate Exness’ grand milestone. Prominent members of Exness Team Pro, the company’s ambassador program, including Dennis Okari, Kojo Forex, and Nicolas Palacios, were also in attendance. The guest list was further enriched by notable figures of Cyprus’ political and social scene, creating an unparalleled global gathering that brought vibrancy and prestige to the island.

Throughout the week, a grand series of events and experiences unfolded, reflecting the stature of the world’s largest retail broker. These included corporate and gala dinners, parties, and daily island excursions. Central to the celebrations were insightful talks by senior management about “The Future of Exness.” Accompanied by state-of-the-art holographic technology, these talks offered a transparent look into Exness’ growth roadmap, its global vision and its role within the global capital markets. The attendees also received an exclusive sneak peek at something special set to be announced at the end of January.

The pinnacle of Exness’ festivities was the unforgettable Cyberness party, which captured the essence of the broker’s innovative spirit. Hosted at Kolla Factory, a multi-disciplinary cultural space, the retro-futuristic event transported its guests to a world of captivating electronic beats, immersive visual arts, and a diverse culinary experience.
