• Sort arr by elem frequency: fail on final assert

import collections

def frequency_sort(items):
    if items == []:
        return items

    counts = collections.Counter(items)  
    for i in counts:
        if counts[i] > 1:
            new_list = sorted(items, key=lambda x: (counts[x], x), reverse=True)
            return new_list
            return items

Hi all! This code from "Sort Array by Element Frequency" fails on the final assert, where frequency_sort([1,2,2,1]). It returns [2,2,1,1], instead required [1,1,2,2] and I don't know why it happened particularly here and how to fix that. Thanks!
