The singer, who is 33 years old, attained this remarkable feat after unveiling her most recent album, ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version),’ on July 7th.
Taylor Swift is making history! On Sunday, the 33-year-old musician broke a new record by becoming the first female artist to have four albums simultaneously charting in the Billboard Top 10. This incredible achievement came shortly after the release of her latest album, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), on July 7th. According to Billboard, the album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart, joining her previous releases, Midnights (No. 5), Lover (No. 7), and Folklore (No. 10), in the Top 10. Prior to Taylor Swift, only three other artists have accomplished this remarkable feat in Billboard’s history: Herb Alpert in 1966 and Prince posthumously in 2016.
According to an announcement from Republic Records, Taylor Swift’s latest album has emerged as the highest-selling album of the year thus far, with 716,000 album-equivalent units sold.
In addition, Billboard noted that this achievement marks Taylor Swift’s 12th No. 1 album, solidifying her position as the female artist with the most chart-topping albums in history, surpassing Barbra Streisand.
Following the release of Taylor Swift’s album Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), there has been renewed speculation about whether her song “Sparks Fly” is about Jake Owen, as reported by PEOPLE. However, the country star, now 41 years old, expressed that he has never been bothered by the theory and even finds it amusing. During an interview at the American Century Championship held at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada, Owen shared his thoughts, stating that he has been aware of the speculation for years. He mentioned that the song is great and believes Taylor Swift probably finds the speculation amusing as well. Owen also revealed that he has known Swift since she was 16 and has always been a fan of her work. In June, Owen released his own latest album, titled Loose Cannon.
