This piece was written during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strikes. We stand with the SAG-AFTRA. Without them, the movies and television shows we cover would not exist.
At this point, the headline feels like an everyday thing. Taylor Swift keeps making history. It’s a thing. We’re not even surprised when she makes history these days. Been there, seen that, just another day ending in ‘y’ around here. Taylor things.
We could have seen this one coming, too. She, after all, just released Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) – which to no one’s surprise, debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard 200. It’s just that there were already three other Taylor Swift albums on the Billboard 200 Top 10. No woman had ever done this in the chart’s history, and only two other artists ever had at all.
The other 3 Swift albums on the Billboard 200 top 10 are Midnights, Lover and Folklore.
Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is a re-release of Swift’s 2014 album. The original album had 14 songs, the new one has 22, which include previously unreleased recordings “From the Vault.”
