While it stands as the highest-selling album since 2015, it’s also the sixth highest-selling album of all time in terms of traditional album sales, accounting for 1.359 million of the aforementioned total units. Taylor Swift’s re-release falls behind records like NSYNC’s “No Strings Attached” (2.416 million), NSYNC’s “Celebrity” (1.878 million), Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP” (1.76 million), and Backstreet Boys’ “Black & Blue” (1.591 million). Swift holds the record for the most number-one albums for a female artist, with 13 different projects topping the chart. She’s tied with Drake, ranking third on the all-time list regardless of gender, following JAY-Z with 14 and the Beatles with 19.

Swift began re-recording her first six studio albums in 2019 following a dispute over ownership of her masters. After her former label, Big Machine Records, was acquired by Scooter Braun, she was unable to regain control of her original recordings.

Beyond her music success, Swift has been romantically linked with Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce. Amidst the public interest in their relationship, Kelce addressed the media attention, stating, “We’re learning with the paparazzi taking photos from all over the place. But at the same time, you know, it comes with it. You’ve got a lot of people that care about Taylor, and for good reason. You’ve just got to keep living and learning and enjoying the moments.” Stay tuned for further updates on their relationship.
