But Taylor didn't stick with her country roots for long. Her second album was in no way similar to the first one, and it was becoming obvious that Taylor had transitioned into a pop star. Her second, third, and fourth albums received massive praise from fans and critics alike. For years, her hit singles have played on the radio, making her a household name.
Fast forward to 2020, Swift has released her eighth album called Folklore, which broke records by selling a million records in a single day. Folklore's release comes just a year after Lover, her seventh album but the singer hasn't engaged in any promotion for her latest album. But this hasn't stopped Folklore from becoming hugely successful.
With 2 million record sales in just a week, Folklore is one of Taylor Swift's most successful albums so far, and many fans are wondering how the singer manages to sell so many records in an era of digital streaming.
One fan shared their theory on Reddit, claiming that the singer has an army of loyal fans who will always buy her albums. Moreover, she also has millions of casual fans who listen to her new music on streaming platforms, therefore propelling her music to number one on top charts.
