Folklore was the first album to sell a million copies in 2020, Billboard.com reported.

After becoming the first K-pop girl group to rank No. 2 on the Billboard main album chart, BLACKPINK has set another record by becoming the first all-female act to sell more than 1 million albums, its agency said Monday.

Following weeks of roaming around the top ten, Taylor Swift's "Folklore" is now back at the top spot of Billboard 200.

In addition to receiving new song certifications, Swift grabbed a platinum album certification for her 2020 release "folklore".

Taylor's record with total weeks at No 1 now stands at 47, one more than Whitney's tally of 46, which she had held since 1987. "Folklore" and "Lover" are the only albums released in 2019 and 2020 to sell a million copies in the U.S.
