Taylor Swift has already broken several records in the music industry, but this latest one has to be the cake topper. Swift has just claimed the Billboard record for the longest charting album of the century!
Her self-titled first CD was released in October of 2006. It’s now on its 157th week on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart, passing up the record previously held by Nickelback.
Taylor also holds the Billboard record for most Top 10 debuts in a calendar year, and is the only solo female act in the 44-year history of the Billboard Country Chart to score five Top 10 singles from a debut album.
And on top of all of that, Taylor was both the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. The last time a female country artist was both the host and performer was Dolly Parton, twenty years ago. She’s done all this before the age of 20! What a feat!
