Taylor Swift is making history with her latest album Folklore. The singer keeps scoring record after record: Swift is now the first female artist to debut on top of the Billboard charts, in the same week, with both the single, Cardigan and with the album Folklore. They debuted at the first place of the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Hot 100.

folklore will have 16 songs on the standard edition, but the physical deluxe editions will include a bonus track called “the lakes.” Because this is my 8th studio album, I made 8 deluxe CD editions and 8 deluxe vinyl editions that are available for one week? Each deluxe edition has unique covers, photos, and artwork. Available exclusively at taylorswift.com
Folklore sold in two weeks more than 2 million copies all over the world, almost 1 million just in the United States, as well as reaching half-billion streams and views in just 7 days. Swift was able to beat her same record gained with her previous album, Lover. Also, this is her 7th album in her career that reached the 1st place in the Billboard 200. No other female artist was able to achieve a similar record, like entering 113 times in the Hot 100 chart. The only artists that did better than her are Drake (224), the Glee Cast (207) and Lil Wayne (169).
Taylor Swift was also of great help during the Covid-19 pandemic, she made several donations to some of her fans that were facing economic difficulties, after reading some of their private messages.
