In just one day of sales, Taylor’s “Midnights” became the top-selling album of the year. Midnights broke Spotify’s record for most streams in a day. Today the top 10 songs on Apple Music and Spotify are on Midnights.”
‘Rolling Stones’ called this album an instant classic in their five-star review, and now this album is on track to sell over one million copies in its first week. This week, the album was on top of the Billboard 200 album chart with “1.578 million equivalent album units earned in the U.S,” in the week ending Oct. 27.
As for the inspiration behind this album, Taylor previously told Jimmy Fallon, “I am beside myself really. It’s actually a concept record, but it’s the first autobiographical album in a while, because the last album that I put out was a rerecord of my album “Red”, so that has some space. “I wrote that stuff a decade ago, “Folklore” and “Evermore”, it was like story time, like a mythology, like I’m creating a character,” she added.
With ‘Midnights’, Swift has become the first artist in history to “claim the top 10 slots of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with tracks from her new record “Midnights.” It would be a real feast for Swifties to watch Taylor Swift rock their world live, that too after nearly five years.
