  1. Folklore has officially went Platinum in the US by The Recording industry Association of America (RIAA) She now joins Madonna, Mariah Carey and Rihanna as the only females to have 8 Albums platinum. Madonna has ten platinum studio albums Mariah carey has 11 studio platinum albums. Only Rihanna and Taylor Swift are the only female recording Acts this century to achieve this. But it took Taylor the fastest as It took nearly 15 years since Music of the Sun to achieve platinum status in the US. Congrats, Ladies.
  2. Six years ago today, on October 27, 2014, Taylor Swift released 1989. It's arguably one of her best albums ever, producing a string of #1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and some incredible / iconic music videos directed by Joseph Kahn ("Toxic"). Exhale, what's your FAV 1989 song? Besides "Style" and "New Romantics" obviously.
  3. Taylor Swift just scooched passed Rihanna for having the most certified singles for a female artist ever. The achievement comes after the RIAA issued Taylor Platinum certifications for four Lover tracks, including: “You Need To Calm Down” — 3x Platinum “Lover” — 2x Platinum “ME!” — 2x Platinum “The Man” — Platinum It's worth noting that folklore surpassed Lover in sales by a mile, so she'll likely extend her own record in the future. Queen of streaming did that
  4. Taylor Swift's folklore will be Billboard's top album by the end of the year. It's already the third biggest seller, unless Ariana comes out with the same strategy as signing autographs, and such. But Taylor is expected to go back to #1 in the US, thx to an additional 80,000 copied sold via her website and all autographed and it's not a bundle. So she won't be denied congrats to the queen of pop of this year. Related:
  5. If one thing is known about Taylor Swift, she has an undying love for cats, even giving them mentions In her music of her at&t sponsored ads.. But she was really clumsy, she signed over 2,000,000 Folklore album's in her bed. The results are both funny and if your allergic to pet dander actually deadly at the same time. So have that epi pen ready in case. Cos at least a good percentage of Those 2,000,000 autographed CDs actually might come with cat hair or hair balls or both. So that makes this autographed Edition of Folklore probably more collectable and rare as she probably won't make this mistake again. But, hey at least she was polite and did the right thing by giving everybody the heads up.
  6. Demi Lovato came to Taylor Swift's defense regarding Tay finally taking a public political stance. Speaking to CNN, Demi said: "You're damned if you do, you're damned if you don't. You can list Taylor Swift as a perfect example of that exact saying. For years she got trashed because she wasn't taking a stance and wasn't standing up for these rights and she kind of took a back seat and now she's become very political and there are people that are unhappy with that too," she said. "It's just, like, you have to live what feels authentic to you. To me, that's using my platform to speak out about the things that I see that are wrong." You may recall Demi was critical of Taylor in the past for keeping silent regarding politics. "At least I speak up about s**t that's uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7," she said in old (now-deleted) Tweets. She also told Glamour in 2016 of Swift: "I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that's not women's empowerment. We all do things that aren't, but I have to ask myself, 'Am I content with calling myself a feminist?' Yes, because I speak out." We love her again Thoughts? Related:
  7. It appears Taylor Swift is releasing another single off her #1 album, folklore. Universal Music Germany has it listed on their website. I would imagine she's not choosing different songs for different countries, so perhaps this'll eventually become a single worldwide? What does it even mean to release a single in 2020 anyway? But I'm glad this song is getting some extra tlc. Thoughts, Exhale?
  8. Taylor Swift's folklore returns to #1 on the Billboard 200 for a seventh non-consecutive week with 87K units. She surprised Whitney Houston for most cumulative weeks at #1 among women. Folklore now has the most weeks at #1 since Drake’s Views topped the charts for for 13 nonconsecutive weeks in 2016. Thoughts, Exhale?! Related:
  9. Update 7: Not folklore becoming TayTays biggest record since 1989 Update 6: Seems after Taylors record-breaking album Folklore staying No.1 for 6 weeks tying with Whitney Houston for most weeks at No.1 Among women, the album is finally letting up The album is predicted to be outsold by Big Sean’s new album which is predicted to debut at No.1 for selling 1120-111k units Update 5: Folklore spends a sixth consecutive week at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. She now ties Whitney Houston for most weeks at #1 among women in Billboard 200's history. It's almost the the first album to spend this many weeks at #1 in the last four years. Update 4: Folklore spends a fifth consecutive week at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. She ties Lil Baby’s My Turn for the most weeks atop the list in 2020. Folklore becomes the first album to rule for five weeks in a row at No. 1 since Drake’s Scorpion also logged its first frames at #1, Billboard reports. In its fifth week, Folklore earned 98,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 27 (down 3%). From Billboard: Update 3: She did it again! Taylor Swift's new album folklore stays put at #1 on the Billboard 200 for a fourth consecutive week with 101,000 album units sold (-26%). It's the first album by a female to spend its first four weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 in nearly five years, since Adele’s 25. Update 2: Swift's new album folklore stays put at #1 on the Billboard 200 for a third consecutive week selling 136,000 equivalent album units (up 1% from last week). Update 1: It seems that republic records inflated their numbers for WW first week sales! According to Mediatraffic, Folklore has sold 1.013 million units, not 1.3 million units. The album sold 169k copies outside of the US, which are...okay numbers, for Taylor, but r pretty good judging the circumstances internationally. Taylor Swift's new album folklore blasted to #1 with 844K in sales, Hits Daily Double reports. The album racked up 175m streams on Spotify alone. Queen of sales omg Earlier: Republic Records announces Taylor Swift's new album folklore sold more than 1.3 million units worldwide in its first day, eclipsing earlier predictions (down below). It sets Spotify's global record for first day album streams by a female artist with 80.6 million, is the most streamed pop album on Apple Music within 24 hours with 35.47 million streams and sets the US and worldwide Amazon Music Indie/Alternative streaming record. Incredible! Earlier: Predictions have come in for Taylor Swifts new critically acclaimed record "Folklore"! The album is now being predicted to sell 450k-650k units; confirmed by Hits Daily Double. The album officially is the #1 most streamed female album within 24 hours (it’s debut)! Earlier: Now that Taylor has pulled a Beyonce card, and surprised everyone's wigs that didn't yet book their appointment to Saturn, What do you think under these circumstances will the album sell in its first week? A few weeks ago, i and some other people were talking about where Taylors career would go to when she releases #TS8 and whether it will be a success or not. Now that she has suprised releasing a new album, under all of this consequences like: Qurantine and COVID-19- Many people (especially in the US) are fearing of going outside amidst the rising amount of cases of corona every day, so less people would be going to the stores to buy the new album Taylor swift is 30 years old- Not meant to be sexist remark, but when a woman in the industry reaches her 30+ era, the industry becomes very discriminating and sexist towards such women. For example- Britney released BJ when she was 32 years, Gaga released Joanne when she was 30 years old, Katy perry released witness when she was 33, and all of these albums underperformed. So, would there be a decrease in sales? Protest- In the US or WW, people are busy protesting against the problems of their country and fighting, such as #BLM . So since many people would be protesting, would they care if TS dropped a new album or not? Billboard has stopped considering bundles So with all of these problems, how much do you think at most will Taylor swift be able to sell in her first week? I personally think that the album will obviously debut at No.1 in the billboard charts, but i think Folklore will sell around 250k-350k in its first week. In the UK, i think she will sell 43k over there and probably debut at No.1 or No.2. Internationally, i predict that the album will shift around 540k-670k What do you think? Let me know
  10. Taylor swift is #1 again on the Billboard 200 and History, I mean herstory was made today. Taylor Swift surpasses Whitney Houston as the female artist with the most weeks at #1 in the Billboard 200. Argue with billboard, I shared the actual receipt.
  11. Big Machine Label screwed Taylor Swift over when they sold her masters to Scooter Braun for hundreds of millions. She's been VERY outspoken about how awful that was and is working on re-recording them so the originals are less valuable. Meanwhile, Kanye West, who appears to be spiraling, has been lighting up Twitter this week with all kinds of talk. This is interesting though... he says he wants to help Taylor acquire her masters back. BTW, Kanye is publicly feuding with his label in an effort to gain control of his masters. A.... mess.

  12. Taylor Swift performed folklore song "betty" at the Country Music Awards on Wednesday. Thoughts, Exhale?! It's so perfect! My favorite song off 'folklore'. This deserves an amazing music video
  13. 1989, The 2016 album of the year has now made Girl power history for Taylor Alison Swift, It has logged it's 300th week on the Billboard 200. Now it's one of 4 female albums to log 300 weeks or more on the Billboard 200. Don't know what the others are, but congrats to Taylor and The swifties. The biggest stan base of the 21st century.
  14. Kanye West is demanding his record company, Universal Music Group, and his publisher, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, hand over the masters to his music or else he won't record new music again. Kanye Tweeted texts between him and his adviser. “We can argue that Universal and Sony have not supported you fully,” the text reads. “And that as a result they have breached [the contracts]. This is the lawsuit/ termination nuclear option. “If we went that route we would litigate and ask for your masters as part of a settlement. This is high risk but high reward strategy,” the message continues. “Re masters ownership we can look into buying. But if Taylor’s cost $300 million yours would cost a lot more I assume. Remember that if you re-recorded these songs you could own these new masters outright.” “A much more radical consideration would be to propose an entirely new relationship or joint venture with Universal. One that is equal and not one sided. I am not sure you are interested in that. But if could be a Yeezy Media/Universal joint venture play but one where you have the power.” I don't see Kanye getting his way with this one And why is he so obsessed with Taylor Thoughts, Exhale?
  15. Folklore went to #5 after the six consecutive weeks on top. In its seventh week, the album sold 48,000 units (she's not a streaming force) to be honest. Several articles claim Taylor put her catalog online the day Witness came out simply to sabotage Katy Perry. Several saw this as a villain strategy. But now it's all love. Anyway, Taylor is no longer #1, but come Christmas season when she releases and ships physical units estimated in the US to be about 3,000,000 total of the vinyl pre orders, once all 8 covers with different bar codes (UPC) ship and scan she will be back on top. The only woman who could end her is Adele. And until Covid is over... reports from actual scientists with degrees suggest a huge and more deadly second wave is expected this holiday season and should last until February. I already plan on going to my grandparents and staying there til the second wave is over. Christmas will not be cancelled and we shouldn't separate ourselves from family Xmas traditions, cos serious depression from the holidays kick in cos loneliness is at a higher peek during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays cos we grew up with that one time of the year. The whole family came together under one roof to celebrate the holidays. Whether ski lodge and such. But business perspective Taylor knows Billboard doesn't count pre orders. She knows her fans have unlimited line of Platinum and Diamond credit, have all bills paid cause most of her fans are from loaded families or have trust funds they are set for life. Don't need to work, everything is paid for. So by having two different ship dates: one for CDs and cassette, the other with the vinyl and digital download with no clothes set for November... she made sure to top the charts during the holidays and stay there.

  17. While recording folklore, Taylor Swift took a moment to literally hand-make a blankie for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom's baby girl Daisy. So wild to think a few years ago these women were at each other's throats, and now it's all love. While their careers are in much different places, they both seem to genuinely root for one another. We love to see it. ....and Katy tells us to stream Folklore.
  18. Congrats queen of not being confined to one genre, FYI Billboard thinks This Album might make Grammy history for Taylor, Billboard thinks Folklore might win Album of the year and Make Taylor Swift the first female in history to win it three times. If she does. She's up there with Stevie wonder and Frank Sinatra as they are the only ones to win Album of the year three times. Billboard also state's the pandemic was Taylor's saving Grace, by releasing an album like Folklore, she made sure to be the front-runner while everybody else delayed until they could tour. She might have helped herself in a guarantee win for sure.
  19. Taylor Swift won Best Direction, an industry-voted category, at the VMAs for her video "The Man." "I was told this was an industry-voted award, so I want to say thank you to everyone in the industry who voted for this video but I also want to really thank the fans because you are the only reason why this industry even cares about anything I do," she said. "And everything you guys have done with folklore this summer, I’m just so blown away and taken aback by your generosity to me so thank you for everything. I hope I get to see you soon." Stream folklore
  20. Taylor Swift has been cancelled and thrown into drama countless times. From the moment Kanye West took the stage in 2008 declaring that Beyoncé deserved the award that then 18-year-old Taylor had won rightfully. Kanye said that Beyoncé had one of the greatest videos of all time? That may be true, however that was not up for debate. The VMA's are fan voted. Taylor has been known for interacting with fans on a personal basis. She has paid off student loans, donated to sick fans, showed up at the hospital to play for some people, sent gifts to them near Christmas, and so many more things. She has EARNED her fan's love and support. She has invited them into her home for secret sessions to listen to her albums before they get wide released and guess what, the fans keep their lips SEALED. There is MUTUAL love and respect. When you love and support your fans, guess what? YOU WIN FAN VOTED AWARDS. People continue to state that she is overrated. She has the most awarded pop album in history and the most awarded country album in history. In 2010, She was the youngest country artist, and the youngest artist in history, to win album of the year with Fearless. This is NOT a fan voted award. This was chosen by people who work in the industry. Yes, they've made mistakes before with their choices, however this was not one of them. Taylor has cowritten or written on every song she has released on any of her studio albums. That is an accomplishment that few artists can claim. That is not the mark of an overrated woman. That is the hard work of an accomplished artist. She has also had successful albums in three different genres thanks to her most recently released album, folklore, which is listed as an alternative album and has claimed the top spot of the Hot 200. They say she causes drama, but she often doesn't start it. The Kanye incident in 2008? He walked up on stage. She didn't invite him. The Kim Kardashian feud? She posted the videos on her snapchat story after Kanye recorded their call without her consent. The Katy Perry drama? Katy hired dancers, that were currently touring with Taylor's highly acclaimed RED tour, to come dance for her. Countless times, she has been shaded and dragged and she does what? Releases a song about her experiences? Guess who else does that? LITERALLY EVERY OTHER ARTIST. You say she only writes breakup songs? Here is a list of songs from her 8 studio albums that she has released that are love songs or inspired by other things: Taylor Swift: A Place In This World, The Outside, Tied Together With A Smile. Stay Beautiful, Mary's Song (Oh My My My), Our Song, I'm Only Me When I'm With You Fearless: Fearless, Fifteen, Love Story, Hey Stephen, You Belong With Me, The Best Day, Change, Jump Then Fall, Superstar Speak Now: Mine, Sparks Fly, Mean, Never Grow Up, Enchanted, Innocent, Long Live, Ours, Superman RED: State of Grace, Treacherous, 22, Stay Stay Stay, Holy Ground, The Lucky One, Everything Has Changed, Starlight, Begin Again 1989: Welcome to New York, Blank Space, Style, Out of the Woods, Shake It Off, Bad Blood, This Love, Clean, You Are In Love, New Romantics reputation: …Ready For It?, End Game, Delicate, Look What You Made Me Do, So It Goes..., Gorgeous, King of My Heart, Dress, This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things, Call It What You Want, New Year's Day Lover: I Forgot That You Existed, Lover, The Man, The Archer, I Think He Knows, Paper Rings, Cornelia Street, London Boy, Soon You'll Get Better, False God, You Need to Calm Down, ME!, It's Nice to Have a Friend, Daylight folklore: cardigan, the last great american dynasty, mirrorball, seven, invisible string, epiphany, peace In 2015, She singlehandedly made Apple Music change their policy by calling them out on the policy they had of not paying artists for streams while users were still in their free trial. Make no mistake: brand new, little known artists that don't have much money were getting paid because SHE wrote an open letter to Apple about their policy. They changed it the same day. She refused to put her music on Spotify for the longest time in order to fight for them to change their policy on how much the artists, writers, producers, and others who contribute were compensated fairly. She is a force to be reckoned with. Do yourself a favor and dig deeper than the popular narrative of hating on Taylor. She doesn't deserve it. She is an artist, and she is working not only for herself but for your next favorite artist.
  21. Several record stores across the country found packages on their doorsteps from the one and only Taylor Swift that included autographed folklore cds. Taylor has been a huge advocate for the music industry and a HUGE supporter of physical albums and record stores in the past. Several record stores posted photos on twitter with the hashtag "#recordstorefolklore" Angie Roloff, owner of Strictly Discs in Madison, Wisconsin, told Billboard: "Yesterday, I got an email from our Universal rep that we were one of the stores that had been chosen to receive 30 autographed Taylor Swift CDs," she said. "We weren't permitted to talk about it until the CDs were in hand, and then we could post socially about it so folks could come and find us. And the other requirement was it has to be just local customers, not just shipping them to people outside of our immediate area. So today has been the day of Taylor Swift frenzy, which was actually quite fun." She obviously did this to help out stores that have been struggling during the pandemic. GENEROUS QUEEN! Related:
  22. Taylor Swift won best direction in a video for "The Man," and it appears Charlie Puth had some thoughts about that. After she won, Charlie quickly Tweeted a "😐" emoji, then followed up saying "my tears ricochet" some great lyrics. Someone on his team must have told him, boy praise something about her, before they come at you, you're not that big to go after her.
  23. So I was going through my playlists and one of them is "Songs That Deserved More" and thought it would be interesting to see your thoughts. I chose a song from each artist mentioned, but of course they have other songs that did not deserve to flop or should've been more successful than they were.

  24. I recently had a conversation with my friend who is a Taylor stan about Gaga vs Taylor Swift discography. I am an admitted Gaga Stan since 2009 but I was able to say I prefer to listen to Taylor's discography more often. I find Taylor's discography more listenable from start to finish, melodically, etc. It is an easier listen. There are a few Gaga albums that are largely unlistenable to me (some of Artpop & Joanne), but there are some major Gaga tracks that go much "further" on impact than anything Taylor has ever put out, such as Bad Romance, Edge of Glory, Rain on Me, Shallow, etc etc etc, that make up for this shortcoming. Though I mostly prefer Taylor's discography as a whole, I am still a Gaga over Taylor stan because of Gaga's vocal ability, constant advocacy for LGBTQIA+ for her entire career, personality, strong and provocative songwriting, etc. I believe Gaga has built a much stronger legacy/impact than Taylor as of now. What do you think? Is there even a comparison to be had between the two? What is Taylor's legacy vs Gaga?
