Both LPs debuted atop the Billboard 200 and earned Swift the seventh and eighth consecutive No. 1 albums of her career. (Folklore in particular, has spent eight nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 since its July release, and became the first and only studio set this year to sell more than one million copies back in October.)
Meanwhile, each studio set’s lead single — Folklore‘s cozy “Cardigan” and Evermore‘s witchy “Willow” — also roared to the top of the Hot 100 upon release, making her the first artist in Billboard history to debut atop both charts simultaneously, and to do so not once but twice.
And as if releasing two surprise albums during a pandemic weren’t enough, Swift also unveiled The Long Pond Studio Sessions on Disney+, and remains hard at work re-recording the first five albums of her back catalog following the ongoing saga over ownership of her masters with Scooter Braun and her former label head Scott Borchetta. While Tay has yet to reveal when any of those re-recorded projects will be ready, she did give fans a sneak peek at the updated version of “Love Story” in early December thanks to a hilarious Match.com ad directed by her pal Ryan Reynolds.
