No. 1 albums

Exciting news: Taylor Swift has made history by surpassing all other female artists with the most No. 1 albums. Let’s congratulate Taylor Swift and her dedicated fanbase, known as Swifties, on this remarkable achievement.

Taylor Swift’s latest release, “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version),” which came out earlier this month, is part of her ongoing project to re-record her initial six albums. This endeavor was sparked by music manager Scooter Braun’s sale of her early catalog. The album has now officially debuted at the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 chart, making it her 12th album to reach this pinnacle.

Previously, Barbra Streisand held the record with 11 No. 1 albums, but Taylor Swift has now surpassed that milestone. She is currently tied with Drake, who also boasts 12 No. 1 albums. However, she remains just behind Jay-Z, who holds the record with 14 No. 1 albums, and the Beatles, who have an astonishing 19.

In addition to this remarkable accomplishment, Taylor Swift’s album release in 2023 is the biggest of the year so far, amassing 716,000 equivalent album units, as reported by Luminate. Out of this total, an impressive 506,600 units come from traditional album sales, comprising 410,000 physical sales and 96,600 digital sales.

With these outstanding numbers, Taylor Swift has overtaken country singer Morgan Wallen, whose album “One Thing at a Time” sold 501,000 units in its opening week. This further solidifies Taylor Swift’s reign as a powerhouse in the music industry.
