Taylor Swift Records New Milestones As Do Others

Last week, Taylor Swift reached a major milestone, thanks to her album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’. 

The LP has now become the singer’s longest-running Number 1 album in the United Kingdom.

With her Eras tour coming to the UK, the singer’s 11th studio album held the top spot for the sixth week, non-consecutive. 

Previously, it had been her album ‘Midnights’ in 2022 that had managed to stay in the Number 1 spot for five non-consecutive weeks. 

The reign

There are several reasons for the success of Taylor Swift in the UK of late. First off, she recently released new digital formats exclusive to the UK. 

These include bonus live recordings that had not been released previously. Moreover, it is also due to the effect of the Eras Tour. 

Thanks to the tour, five of the singer’s albums have made it to the Top 40 list. 1989 climbed up 12 spots to reach the 9th mark, while Lover climbed up 12 spots to reach number 7.

Midnights reached the 13th spot after climbing 13 positions. Meanwhile, reputation vaults and folklore leaps also climbed 17 and 11 spots to reach the 19th and 14th position, respectively.


Charli xcx also recorded some milestones in the same week. Earlier in the week, the singer’s sixth album named BRAT was able to make the Number 2 debut. 

In fact, the album became her biggest opening week until now, as the total of the first week managed to surpass the total of CRASH, which topped the charts in 2022.

As a matter of fact, BRAT managed to make several other records. It was the best-selling record on wax for the week and claimed the Number 1 spot on the Official Vinyl Albums Chart.

Moreover, UK independent record shops saw it become the most popular physical album of the last seven days.

Other records

Bon Jovi also managed to secure some records during their 40th anniversary year. The rock legends’ ‘Forever’ album managed to land in the Top 10 at the 3rd position.   

This is the 18th time that they have managed to secure this record. In addition, Forever also became the highest-charting album of the band in the last nine years.

The last time their album had done so was Burning Bridges in 2015. Eminem’s Houdini has also been enjoying a great deal of success. 

The popularity game Curtain Call: The Hits a boost, as it returned to the Top 5 list. It had previously been in the 7th spot but reached the 5th spot. 

Curtain Call 2 also climbed to the 26th spot from the 28th. Meghan Trainor also made it to the Top 40 list in the UK with Timeless.

This is the third time for her. Previously, she had managed to do so in 2015 with her debut and the next time it was a year later with Thank You. 

Ariana Grande also released her latest single, pushing Eternal Sunshine into the Top 40 list again.
