Two years later, Taylor released her second studio album, “Fearless” which peaked at number one on the Billboard 200. The album also became the top-selling album in the US in 2009 and was later included on NPR’s 2017 list of the 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women. Her next album “Speak Now”, released in 2010 also ranked number one on Billboard 200. Speak Now also became the fastest-selling digital album by a female artist and helped Taylor enter the 2010 Guinness World Records. Her fourth studio album, “Red”, came out in 2012 and once again won multiple awards and Guinness World Records.
Again after an interval of two years, Swift’s fifth album titled “1989” was released which debuted at the top of the US Billboard 200 chart. The album tour which ran from May to December 2015 became the highest-grossing tour of the year. Following the release of the album, Taylor hid from the spotlight and made a comeback with her hit single “Look What You Made Me Do” from her sixth album, “Reputation”. Just like the previous albums, Reputation too debuted atop the Billboard 200 and sold over a million copies within a week. With this, Swift became the first artist to sell one million copies of four albums within one week in the US.

Swift released her seventh album, Lover, in 2019 which became the world’s best-selling album by a solo artist of the year. The album featured many popular singles including “Me!”, “You Need to Calm Down”, “Lover”, “The Man”, and “Cruel Summer”. In 2020, a documentary named “Miss Americana” based on Swift’s life and career, premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival that later released on Netflix. The same year Swift released two surprise albums “Folklore” and “Evermore” amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Swift’s tenth studio album, “Midnights”, was released in 2022 which again debuted atop the Billboard 200 and made and broke many records.
In addition to the ten albums, Swift has also released three re-recorded albums, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)”, “Red (Taylor’s Version)”, “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)”, and “1989 (Taylor’s Version)”. These albums were re-recorded after Taylor entered into a feud with talent manager Scooter Braun who acquired Big Machine and refused to provide the rights of her song back without fulfilling certain conditions.
