Taylor Swift, or TSwift, has achieved a legendary album release of folklore. From the merch to the music to the release itself. It’s only been a short while since folklore dropped into our laps, yet it is the talk of the internet. Scoring number ones left and right as well as praise from thousands. It’s only been a mere nine days since the surprise drop. We’re speechless.
Taylor is the only artist in history to have 7 albums sell half a million copies of a studio album in a week. Fearless, Speak Now, RED, 1989, reputation, Lover, and finally folklore making for the seventh consecutive #1 entry on the Top 200 and 6th consecutive studio album with over 800,000 albums in the first week. People have been talking non-stop, from official to fan reviews. We’ve seen it all.
folklore is taking over
Folklore proves that she can thrive away from the noise: if you interpret “classmates” as pop peers, Swift is no longer competing.
The Guardian, Laura Snapes
At 30, and with a substantial body of work already behind her, Folklore is Swift telling the world in no uncertain terms that she will be around for a long time to come. And good on her.
The Irish Independent, John Maegher
but wait there’s more
Taylor Swift has definitely shown us that you can make the absolute best out of a terrible situation. This album will be talked about for a long time and if you want more of our thoughts on folklore we have an article just for that. To be honest, Taylor has come such a long way. It’s been wonderful to watch her grow as a woman and an artist. She’s gotten bolder, more confident and her true prowess is showing divinely. Not only can she conquer country and pop but we’re heading down the alternative lane with folklore.
On top of all of these numbers and successes, Taylor also nabbed five 2020 MTV Video Music Award nominations. ‘The Man’ received nominations in categories “Video Of The Year” and “Best Direction” making these her very first directing nominations! Other categories include “Best Pop,” “Best Art Direction,” and “Video For Good.”
The stars are gleaming. Is this destiny in motion?
