Evermore debuts at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart in the UK

Taylor Swift’s surprise-released ninth album becomes her sixth chart-topper in just eight years.

Taylor Swift’s surprise new album Evermore debuts at Number 1 on this week’s Official Albums Chart.

Swift claims a rarely seen feat of landing two chart-topping albums within a calendar year, following Folklore, which spent three weeks at the summit in August. Evermore was the most downloaded and streamed album of the week.

The singer-songwriter is the first artist in four years to hold the Number 1 spot with two different albums in a calendar year, since David Bowie scored two Number 1s across January – February 2016 with Blackstar and Best of Bowie following his death.

Released last Friday less than 24 hours after it was announced, Evermore earns Swift her sixth UK Number 1 album. Only three other female artists have six or more chart-topping albums in Official Chart history: Madonna (12), Kylie Minogue (8) and Barbra Streisand (6).

Swift has achieved her six Number 1s in record time among female artists, eight years, surpassing Madonna’s 11 years (between 1997 – 2008). It is also the fastest accumulation of six chart-toppers since both Robbie Williams and Westlife achieved six Number 1 albums between 2000 – 2006. View Taylor Swift’s Official UK Chart history here.

Buoyed by the success Evermore, Swfit’s previous album Folklore rises 13 places this week to Number 21.
