Taylor Swift breaks The Beatles’ record as she scores THREE UK chart-topping albums

Taylor Swift has made chart history with the release of her re-recorded 2008 album Fearless, which became the UK’s number one album on Friday. 

With this victory, the singer, 31, has scored three chart-topping albums in just 259 days, thanks to the release of Folklore and Evermore, which breaks The Beatles’ long-held record of three number one albums in 364 days.   

Before the Blank Space hitmaker dominated the UK charts with the success of her three albums, The Beatles had held their record for the past 54 years.

The grateful superstar quickly took to Twitter following the news to thank her millions of fans across the pond. 

‘Home is where the heart is but God I love the UK!!!,’ she wrote in reaction to the news from the official charts. 

Fearless is the first of six albums that Taylor plans to re-record and release as a way to regain creative control of her music following the sale of her past catalogue ‘without her knowledge.’

Record executive Scooter Braun gained ownership of Taylor’s past music catalogue when he purchased her first label, Big Machine Records, in June 2019.

Incensed that she didn’t have a chance to buy back her work, Taylor went public with the idea to re-record all six albums three months later. 

But in November 2020, Braun sold the rights to her first six albums to the private equity company Shamrock Holdings, in a deal said to be worth over $300 million, according to Variety.

Determined to keep ownership of her future music, Taylor signed a new agreement with Universal Music Group in 2019. 

This gave her the rights to all future masters, which includes her albums Folklore and Evermore, as well as 2019’s Lover.  

Taylor’s new album Fearless was first released in 2008 and shot to critical and commercial success with her singles Love Story and You Belong With Me.

The album went on to win four Grammy Awards at the 52nd ceremony and helped cement the Pennsylvania native as one of the biggest performers of her generation.  

Although Taylor has retained the publishing rights to her songs, and makes money every time someone streams them or purchases a download or a CD from the compositions, she didn’t own the actual master recordings, which were originally held by her record label Big Machine. 

In a sign of devotion, her fans, known as Swifties, are currently trying to make the original recordings disappear on Spotify.

The Twitter account Taylor Swift Updates has been sharing a how-to guide to hiding all the old versions of her albums and songs on Spotify to ensure fans automatically get the re-recordings.
