Taylor Swift Becomes the Only Female Artist with the Most No. 1 Albums in History


Taylor Swift certainly has a penchant for breaking records. Now, the singer has secured more accolades for herself as her latest album debuts at the top spot on the Billboard 200. Not only is Swift the first woman, and third artist across genders, to have four albums chart simultaneously in the Top 10 but she has also beat the previous record for most No. 1 albums by a female artist in history.

Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) was released earlier this month in a widely successful saga to re-record her discography following a conflict with her former manager Scooter Braun. The album has already sold 716,000 equivalent album units – the biggest album release this year. With Lover, Midnights, and Folklore all featured in the top 10 along with Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), Swift has followed in the footsteps of legendary artists such as Prince and American trumpeter Herb Alpert who are the only other artists to have four albums in the Top 10 at the same time.

The re-recorded version of Speak Now not only contains the standard 14 tracks from the original album but also features bonus cuts along with previously unreleased recordings bringing the total tracks to 22. Fans who attended her concert in Kansas City on July 7 also got to watch the premier of the music video for the album’s “From the Vault” track “I Can See You” with the star.
