Taylor Swift’s career shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. She has yet another number one album in the United States to her credit. ‘Reputation’ is her latest album to reach the top of the charts in America. It has been number one for two consecutive weeks. The last album to do that in the United States was Jay-Z’s most recent album. Swift’s album reaching the top spot prevented the new album from country music superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill from debuting on top. Their album is called ‘The Rest of Our Life.’
It is interesting that Swift would block McGraw and Hill from the top spot on the album chart. This is because Swift began her career as primarily a country artist before eventually crossing over into pop music. She admits to being heavily influenced by the music of both Hill and McGraw. Swift would later record a song with McGraw that became a big hit. This is the fourth straight album that Swift has released that has been at the top of the charts for its first two weeks of release. It has already sold almost 1.5 million copies.
Taylor Swift has been able to do what most of her pop music counterparts have not. She has been able to maintain a huge fan base who will keep buying her albums year after year. This trend does not seem like it will be coming to an end. Many pop stars lose their young fans when they get older and get interested in other types of music. However, Swift’s audience of young girls has grown up with her. Therefore, they relate to her in a much different way than most fans of a musician. Swift has announced that she will be going on tour again in 2018.
