Taylor Swift, the 19-year-old country music sensation, continues to have the top-selling album in the land — this week, her second album, Fearless, begins its eighth week in the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200 Album Chart.

Her luck is subject to change though, as Bruce Springsteen’s Working On A Dream is expected to claim the No. 1 spot once it hits the charts next week.

This week’s Billboard 200 also marks career highs in the Chart debuts of American Songwriter favorites Andrew Bird, Bon Iver, and Animal Collective.
