Taylor Swift Soars with Her Sixth No. 1 Album Lover

Taylor Swift has done it again! She just landed her sixth number 1 album on the Billboard 200 with her newest offering. It’s no other than her studio album Lover.

Taylor Swift and Lover‘s Success

In a single week, Lover netted about 867,000 equivalent album units in the US, according to Billboard. Of that amount, 679,000 were in album sales, 13,000 were in TEA units, and 175,000 were in SEA units. Both numbers are the largest registered for any album in one week since Reputation. It is the largest sales week for any album since Swift’s 2017’s Reputation.

Swift instantly took to Twitter on Saturday to thank her fans for the support and the success that she had accumulated.

“I just have to say to you guys, thank you so much for one of the best weeks of my life. I can’t thank you enough.”

According to a press release, the album “smashed the all-time pre-sale record at Target and eclipsed debut physical sales of Reputation.” In addition, the album has hit #1 in 98 countries on iTunes. On the Spotify U.S. chart, every song debuted in the top 25 with 9 in the top 10. Lover also broke the global record as the “top album debut in the history of Amazon Music.”

Lover is Swift’s sixth studio album, and her first under the auspices of a new recording contract with Republic Records, after parting ways with Big Machine Label Group.
