Taylor Swift has broken The Beatles’ long-held chart record for having the fastest run of three number one albums.
Swift’s re-recorded LP Fearless (Taylor’s Version) topped the UK chart on Friday, following the success of her recent efforts Folklore and Evermore.
The US singer scored her hat-trick in a total of just 259 days, beating the Fab Four’s 54-year-old record of three chart-topping albums in 364 days.
John, Paul, George and Ringo’s run was for Help!, Rubber Soul and Revolver.
It’s been quite a record-breaking 2021 for Swift so far, after she became the first female artist to win album of the year three times at the Grammys.
