Prince has made music history yet again as he currently holds the record for the highest number of positions held on the Billboard 200 album chart in a one-week span.

For the week of May 14th, the late musician had 19 albums on the chart, just one away from controlling 10 percent of the entire Billboard 200. The previous record holder, The Beatles, had 13 albums on the chart in a single week.

Among Prince’s 19: “The Very Best of Prince,” which reached No. 2; “Purple Rain” (No. 3), “The Hits/The B-Sides” (No. 4) and “1999” (No. 7). “Sign ‘O’ The Times,” “Around The World In A Day” and “Controversy” also made the chart.

“The Very Best Of Prince” had actually reached No. 1, but was replaced during his record-setting week of May 14th by Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” which dropped two days after Prince’s April 21st passing.
