If you’re anything like us, you haven’t taken Midnights off loop since it dropped. To be fair, could anyone blame us? The record charts certainly can’t, since Miss Swift has done nothing but shatter record after record with the release of Midnights. So many records, in fact, we have to spend this entire article talking about it. And while we’re at it… let’s talk about some of our current favorites off the album, considering they’re going to be different by midnight.
Let’s start off with Midnights debuting at No. 1 in fourteen different countries! Not to mention that Taylor is the first artist to have five albums debut with over 1 million units sold in its first week. It is beyond mind-blowing to see Taylor shatter record after record. We guess it’s safe to say she is still ‘Bejeweled’ when she makes any move.
And if that wasn’t enough for you, how about breaking the records for most album streams in Spotify & Amazon Music history within its first week, getting over 1 million pure album sales in one week, and giving Taylor 11 albums to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200? To say she’s a ‘Mastermind’ would simply be pointing out the obvious facts at hand.
What’s breaking a few records without battling it out with some of the greats for their own? Taylor Swift is now tied with Barbara Streisand as the female artist with the most No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200. Midnights not only became the best-selling album of 2022 but tied with Streisand herself?! ‘Question…?’: what can’t Taylor Swift do?
To round out breaking record after record, why not break some records of your own? Taylor did just that, of course – Midnights is her biggest US debut since 1989, leaving the records it held in second place to the ones Midnights continue to set for itself. With reaching 1 million US pure album sales in one week, Midnights is the first album since 2017’s reputation to reach that insane feat. It’s safe to say she’s received all of the positive ‘Karma‘ she’s earned!
What More Can We Say?
We could genuinely go on for ages with not only the records Midnights has set, but with how in awe we are of it ourselves. But we feel confident that you understand how absolutely maddening Taylor Swift’s talent is.
