The Cardigan singer-songwriter debuted with her new studio album folklore at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, the chart company announced on August 2, this Sunday. With 846,000 equivalent album units, Swift’s album Folklore kicked off its first week, marking the biggest week for any album since Taylor’s own Lover in 2019, which debuted with 867,000 units.
Taylor has all owned to the three biggest weeks for any song in the last four years: Reputation in July 2016 (1.24 million), Lover (867,000), and Folklore (846,000). It is Taylor ‘s seventh album No. 1 and sets a new record for female artists for debut No. 1 single.
Fans have been all praises since Taylor released her much-loved album. Recently one of the fans took to Twitter and said he had not been offered a chance to hear the album to date. The fan said, “so I see I went viral while I didn’t have my phone. I can’t believe miss swift really dropped a wholeass album anyway i’m gonna listen to it now,” tweeted Delphine.
What was surprising that Taylor replied to the fan by saying: “Welcome back from your trip! We are all sombre woodland fairies now. Feel free to grab a wicker basket and join us!”
