Taylor Swift is an absolute machine when it comes to breaking records with her music.

The 33-year-old recently became the only living artist in history to achieve the iconic chart record of most simultaneous albums on the US Billboard 200, but it seems she wasn’t done there.

Thanks to the release of her latest re-record, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), she claimed her 31st debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

It was her song “I Can See You (Taylor’s Version)”, one of six previously unreleased “From The Vault” tracks that helped her snag the record for most Top 10 debuts on the US Hot 100 (female).

Her re-recorded Red (Taylor’s Version) also saw her snap up the record for most simultaneous new entries on the Hot 100 (female) when she dropped it in November 2021.

26 of the 30 tracks debuted on the chart at the same time, including “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)”, “Stay Stay Stay”, “Begin Again” and “Run” (featuring Ed Sheeran).

Taylor has also broken her own record for most cumulative weeks at No.1 on US albums charts (solo female).

As of 29 July, Taylor’s 12 US No.1 albums had spent a combined total of 63 weeks at the top of the charts.

This included the original versions of her albums and her re-records, which she famously began releasing after the masters of her first six albums were sold.

Taylor has set this record twice before, with 47 weeks in 2020 and again in 2022 with 56 weeks.

The singer’s 12 No.1 albums also means she’s claimed the most US No.1 albums by a female artist record for herself.

She had previously shared it with Barbra Streisand when they both had 11, and Barbra had solely held the record before that.

Taylor’s 12 No.1 albums are:


Speak Now

Fearless (Taylor’s Version)

Red (Taylor’s Version)


Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)

Her debut album, Taylor Swift, is the only one not to make it to the top spot, reaching No.5 on the US charts.

Taylor has also had the most US singles chart entries (female) with an incredible 212.

On 22 July, exactly one-quarter of the US Hot 100 belonged to her, with tracks from Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) dominating the chart.

With rumours that Reputation (Taylor’s Version) is up next flooding the internet, it probably won’t be long before Taylor breaks her own records or earns even more.
