Taylor Swift’s Midnights spent five weeks atop the Billboard 200 during its initial run—and it’s now back for more! The deluxe edition propelled Swift’s tenth studio album back to No. 1, breaking Morgan Wallen’s twelve-week-long streak at the summit of the chart.

Swift dropped two new deluxe editions of Midnights on May 26, titled The Til Dawn Edition and The Late Night Edition. They both featured 13 songs from the original album, in addition to several new tracks.

The Til Dawn Edition was much shorter, and it included three new songs – “Hits Different”, “Karma” remix featuring Ice Spice, and “Snow on the Beach” featuring more Lana Del Rey. The Late Night Edition also included new versions of “Karma” and “Snow on the Beach”, along with “You’re Losing Me” and five songs from the previously released 3 am Edition.

These new releases propelled Swift back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with 282,000 equivalent album units sold during its most recent week on the chart. This is the second biggest week for an album in 2023, since the release of Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time, who’s been ruling the chart for 12 weeks until Swift managed to end his unbreakable streak.
