-Congrats Taylor Swift! According to Billboard, Taylor has the longest charting album of this ENTIRE CENTURY. Her self-titled debut CD, released in October of 2006, has been on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart for 157 weeks, which is more weeks than any other album, beating the record previously held by Nickelback. Some other records Taylor holds are the Billboard record for most Top 10 debuts in a year, and she’s the only solo female artist in Billboard history to have five Top 10 singles from a debut album. Additionally, she’s the record-holder for the longest-charting female country star in the Nielsen SoundScan era and the only country artist in history to have a No. 1 song on Billboard’s Nielsen BDS Hot 100 airplay chart.
Don’t forget to watch her host and perform on Saturday Night Live this weekend!! Also check out some behind the scenes footage from Taylor’s Band Hero commercial below. The game comes out tomorrow.
