Taylor Swift lands her sixth Number One album with ‘Lover’

Taylor Swift has no need to calm down this week after her seventh studio album has landed straight at Number One on the Billboard 200 chart.

In just one week ‘Lover’ has racked up 867,000 combined sales and streams, with 679,000 being pure sales. Not only does this land the album as the biggest debut of 2019, but the biggest debut since her previous release reputation in 2017. Additionally, the album has already reached Gold certification due to the pure sales of 679,000 copies.

Furthermore, Taylor Swift has become the first woman to have six different albums each sell at least 500,000 copies in a single week and has kept her title as the only act to have four different albums each sell a million copies in a single week.

In a world where Taylor has been one of the most hated, ridiculed and scrutinised women in the industry, her landing her sixth Number One album (and her Number One album that she OWNS) proves that once again Taylor is still dominating and thriving 13 years into her career regardless of what may get thrown her way. Achieving this much with a record as personal, raw, emotional, euphoric and bubbling over with love in every way, shape and form as Lover is a moment for Miss Swift.
