Swift captures her seventh No 1 record in Over the Pond
Taylor Swift has broken a 54 year record held by The Beatles in the United Kingdom for the fastest accumulation of three No. 1 albums. Swift captures her third chart-topping album in a span of 259 days with Fearless (Taylor’s Version), which follows Folklore on July 31st and Evermore on December 18th, according to Official Charts.
The Beatles’ record was in a span of 364 days between 1965-1966 with Help!, Rubber Soul, and Revolver.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) becomes the country and pop star’s seven UK No. 1 album, and outperforms her original 2008 version of Fearless with 21k in sales. Swift is now third among female artists with the most chart-topping albums in the country, behind Madonna with 12 and Kylie Minogue with eight.
Swift’s other UK No. 1 albums are Red (2012), 1989 (2014), Reputation (2017) and Lover (2019).

Thus far, tracks from the album have already generated over 300 million streams and counting. The debut of “You All Over Me (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)” extends Swift’s hold as the female artist with the most charting Hot 100 hits of all time with 130 debut entries on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart. In addition, it marks her 25th Top 10 entry on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart and opened at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Digital Song Sales Chart, making it Swift’s record-extending 16th chart leader.
