Taylor Swift has once again made chart history, solidifying her status as a music industry powerhouse. According to Billboard, Swift has achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the first living act to have five albums concurrently in the top 10 since August 1963 when the Billboard 200 combined its previously separate mono and stereo album charts into one comprehensive list.

Swift's albums that contributed to this achievement include her latest release, "1989 (Taylor’s Version)," along with "Midnights," "Folklore," "Lover," and "Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)." What makes this accomplishment even more impressive is the timeline, with "Lover" released in 2019, "Folklore" in 2020, "Midnights" in 2022, "Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)" in July 2023, and "1989 (Taylor’s Version)" in October 2023.

The last artist to achieve a similar feat was Prince, but this occurred posthumously in 2016 after his death at the age of 57.

Swift's recent dominance extends beyond chart success. In October, she surpassed her own Spotify record, becoming the most-streamed artist in a single day in the platform's history. Furthermore, "1989 (Taylor’s Version)" claimed the title of Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day for the entire year.

Swift's ability to consistently produce chart-topping albums spanning several years underscores her enduring popularity and influence in the music industry.
