With the critically praised album Midnights and the lead song ‘Anti-Hero,’ TAYLOR SWIFT has achieved her first double-double on the UK Official Charts and becomes the first artist to top both the UK Official Albums and Singles charts in back-to-back weeks.
Taylor’s tenth studio album, Midnights,has already sold over 250,000 copies and is the fastest-selling album of 2022 in the UK. The single, ‘Anti-Hero’ which received over 7 million streams in the UK in just one week, was the biggest Spotify UK debut from any international artist at anytime in music history, and moves up to number 2 on the UK Airplay chart.
Taylor had one of the most significant weeks in the 64-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 song chart earlier this month when she became the first artist to claim all 10 of the survey’s top tracks in a single frame, all of which were taken from her album Midnights. This is the first occasion in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart where a male singer or act is missing from the Top 10.
