Taylor Swift has more number one albums than any woman in history.

Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), released earlier this month, is the third in her endeavour to re-record her first six albums, instigated by music manager Scooter Braun’s sale of her early catalogue.

It has officially debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming her 12th album to reach the top spot.

Previously, Barbra Streisand held the record, with 11 number one albums.

Swift ties Drake’s record of 12 number one records, but sits just behind Jay-Z, who has 14 number one albums to his name, and The Beatles, who have 19.

In addition to hitting the milestone, Swift has 2023’s biggest album release to date, with 716,000 equivalent album units, according to Luminate.

An impressive 506,600 are in traditional album sales (a combination of 410,000 physical and 96,600 digital sales.)

With those figures, Swift has dethroned country singer Morgan Wallen, whose album One Thing At A Time sold 501,000 units in its first week.

This news comes as Taylor Swift tickets go on sale for her three Liverpool shows.

The award-winning singer-songwriter will now perform at the iconic home of Liverpool Football Club on Thursday 13 June as well as Friday 14 and Saturday 15 June 2024.

There will be special guest appearance from Paramore on all three Anfield dates.

Taylor announced her first two dates last month and due to demand the third has been added, making the post popular Anfield music show ever.
