Taylor Swift is celebrating her longest reign at the top of the US pop chart after Blank Space racked up a fifth week at number one.
The singer's latest release beats the four weeks Shake It Off recently spent atop the Billboard Hot 100 and the three-week run she had with We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together in 2012.
Hozier's Take Me to Church sits at two, just ahead of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk, which climbs two places to three.
Meghan Trainor's Lips Are Movin' and I'm Not the Only One by Sam Smith round out the new top five.
Meanwhile, rapper J. Cole has scored his third straight number one album with 2014 Forest Hills Drive, which leads the Billboard 200 countdown with 354,000 copies, making it the biggest sales for a hip-hop album since Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 shifted 792,000 upon its release in November, 2013.
Swift's 1989 falls to two, while That's Christmas to Me by Pentatonix slips to three.
Carrie Underwood's Greatest Hits: Decade #1 takes fourth place and AC/DC's Rock or Bust places fifth.
