Taylor Swift breaks records with 10th album


Taylor Swift has accomplished something no other artist has accomplished, holding every top 10 spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Swift’s latest album, the north fell on October 21 and immediately broke records. The same day it was released, it became Spotify’s most streamed album in one day.

October 21 also marked the day Swift became the artist with the most streams in a single day in Spotify history.

It’s also the first time in the chart’s 64-year history that the top ten is all-female or all-female.
