  1. This album isn’t nearly as instant as folklore and that’s okay. It took me several listens to appreciate it (not fully, but in a better light). I think that this album is more complex lyrically than folklore, whereas folklore had catchier - and therefore more instant melodies. With that said, I’m still in awe at this whole project. Definitely on par for me in terms of how it holds up in comparison to folklore. Now, not using the previous record as a benchmark (which is the best idea but admittedly hard to do) I’d say this is another career highlight for sure. Red, folklore and evermore -
  2. Cardigan is a better song, while Willow is a better video!
  3. First female artist with 6 albums past this milestone btw (iirc, Rih and Gaga both have 5)
  4. Fearless - 11 weeks Speak Now - 6 weeks Red - 7 weeks 1989 - 11 weeks reputation - 4 weeks Lover - 1 week folklore - 7 weeks
  5. As if The only way this would make sense is if Taylor / Scooter are close to reaching a deal and in a last ditch effort to screw her over Kanye is going to take credit if she gets her masters back (probably with Scooter’s assistance). Scooter will lose way more money by letting her re-record, so selling them back would be a better option. The thing is he obviously won’t just do it in good faith, if this is the case. Kanye would never do anything to help her out with good intention. I genuinely hope this disgusting, abusive asshole gets the absolute worst life can possibly throw his

  7. Folklore becomes the longest-running #1 album of 2020, and only album to do 6+ weeks since Drake’s Views in 2016, with 90k units moved this week. Taylor also ties Whitney for most weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 among women - both with 46 weeks each.
  8. This is her 4th week at #1 (1-3-1-1-2-1)
  9. Taylor Swift - Folklore Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher Rina Sawayama - Sawayama My honorable mention goes to Ungodly Hour by Chloe x Halle I haven’t liked that many albums this year, but I’d still say it’s been a good year for music overall because what I consider to be the high points have been very high.
  10. Epiphany and Peace are equally the most underrated tracks (they’re both in my top 3)
  11. I wouldn’t really call this one obscure. It’s a weekly chart based on the biggest artists across all Billboard charts combined each week. So basically Taylor has been the biggest artist, taking into account data from all Billboard charts, for 41 weeks since the chart’s launch in 2014(?). But it’s a new one for sure, it’d be cool if they could go back and calculate it from at least 2000 tbh. It doesn’t give a full picture for artists who peaked before 2014. I don’t think they will since they’re usually frontloaded (no shade), but they’ll work their way up nicely. Hopefully her reco
  12. Yeah HDD has released predictions and she’s in the running for the 6th week at #1, but Pop Smoke’s album is really holding up and putting up a fight (because they doubled the amount of tracks to 34 dd ). Katy is predicted around #4 if I’m not mistaken. Tbh, I think Folklore can do it but her team should pull something to secure it, she has a 6th and maybe even several more secured if her team just does their job and finds ways to push it every week like they’ve been doing.
  13. Forgot to add in the OP btw: the way it’ll become the longest running #1 album since mid 2016 (4.5 years ago) if she pulls off a 6th week
  14. First album since Scorpion to spend its first 5 weeks at #1 and tied as the longest running album of 2020 so far The album is also outpacing Lover which did 65k (1.293M total) during its 5th week, compared to Folklore’s 98k (1.316M total). Legends only!

      ^FOTP its virality tbh clap3 

      The way none of them signed up tho gag1 

  16. I hope she can get a 5th week (and maybe 6th week sometime down the line). It’s not impossible, and even if she doesn’t I cannot believe she pulled off this many weeks at #1 in 2020 4 in US, Canada, Australia, 3 in Ireland and UK, 2 in NZ. Probably more to come in several of these markets if they play their cards right so I honestly cannot wait!
  17. I think it’s a good album and much better than reputation (I’ve always been on Lover Defense Squad) but it’s nothing more than a career stepping stone that allowed her to get to Folklore and whatever is coming next. That’s not a bad thing though, so it was necessary in her career no matter what people think of it. Yes it has some fillers but overall I enjoy the album, and btw INTHAF is top 3 on the album regardless of what anyone says. Folklore’s precursor (of less quality but still great!) I would only really cut The Man and ME!, maybe IFTYE on a bad day. YNTCD has grown on me and I li
  18. I think that’s pushing it but it’s probably crept into my top 5. Epiphany, Seven, Cardigan, Peace and Hoax.
  19. Also on Spotify, Apple Music and all other streaming services + iTunes etc. Listed under a ‘deluxe version’ of the album.
  20. https://www.billboard.com/taylor-swift-folklore-third-week-no-1-billboard-200-chart 136k units, biggest third week sales for a female artist since her own Reputation in 2017
  21. Still can’t decide on a proper trinity but I think after a couple weeks mine is now: Epiphany, Cardigan and Peace First and last are extremely underrated. People are UGLY for putting them so low. Cardigan getting its deserved praise tho! (Hoax is growing on me so much that it might be nearing my top 5, tbh)
  22. Apparently the album has been rising in a lot of Euro countries this week. Not sure how because I don’t think physicals come until this week or next. 1 (+2) Ireland #1 (=) UK #2 (+1) Belgium #2 (+8) Netherlands #5 (+11) Germany *New Peak*
