Taylor Swift’s records have spun a new world record for the singer who now has the most No.1 Albums for a female artist AND has seen four of them top the same chart at the same time.


Global (18 July, 2023) — Swifties are celebrating Taylor Swift even more than they already do after the artist made musical history.

Thanks to her album ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’ spinning to No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart, Swift now has four albums dancing in the Top 10 stream at the same time—the first time a living artist (male or female) has done this since the ’60s.

Swift also became the female artist with the most No.1 Albums in history as she celebrates 12 No.1 albums in her career, ushering in a new era for the record previously held by Barbra Streisand.

Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is the third instalment of the Taylor’s Version movement, and all songs were written by Swift making the album’s success even more personal.

Taylor’s Versions Really Said ‘Speak Now’ to Artists Everywhere

If you’re wondering what Taylor’s Versions are, they’re something of a creative reset and nostalgic ode to many of Swift’s era-defining hits. However, beyond the artistry of revisiting old loves, the revamps were also Swift’s response to claiming agency over her own work amid a masters handover headache.

She sat down during the pandemic and re-record her versions as a kickback to corporate handlers profiting enormously off her work and as a sign for other artists to feel empowered in their own creative agency.

Her recent moment in musical history then, is more than a nod to her as an artist but also a future where artists have more creative ownership.
