Taylor Swift’s Speak Now has made history at the top of the U.S. album charts by landing the lowest sales week for a number one on record.
The album scores a sixth non-consecutive week at the top of the Billboard 200 with just 52,000 sales.

According to Billboard.com, the previous low had been set by the Dreamgirls soundtrack in January 2007 – that made it number one on the chart with just over 60,000 sales.

Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday climbs to two on the new countdown with a weak 39,000 sales week, while Bruno Mars’ Doo-Wops & Hooligans rounds out the top three with 38,000 sales.

The highest debut is the iTunes-exclusive Country Strong: More Music From the Motion Picture, which enters the new chart at a lowly 48.
