New album The Tortured Poets Department by Taylor Swift has broken yet another record.

With the greatest first-week sales in seven years, the album has topped the UK music chart since its release one week ago.

According to the BBC, Swift’s 31-track double album, which includes a second volume named The Anthology that she revealed to her fans as a surprise, moved 270,000 UK chart units in just seven days, surpassing her previous record of 204,000 for her 2022 album Midnights.

With more UK number one albums ever, Swift now shares the record with Madonna as the most successful female artist. Bruce Springsteen and both of them have 12 to their names. Just Elvis Presley, Robbie Williams, The Rolling Stones, and The Beatles have more.

This album has seen Swift shatter more records. It became Spotify’s most streamed album in a single day at the end of launch day, and five days later it became the first album to be streamed one billion times.

With a lengthy relationship with English actor Joe Alwyn and a brief relationship with 1975 frontman Matt Healey—who seems to come off worst in the lyrics—the album is a clear verbal memento of Swift’s final few years of romance. In fact, many people associate the diminutive pop star with the song “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived.”.
