Taylor Swift Scores Two More Spots in the Guinness Book of World Records
Although she’s only 23 years old, Taylor Swift is no stranger to the Guinness Book of World Records, and she’s just scored two more spots in the prestigious book.
Swift’s undeniably catchy hit ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ was good enough to take the title for the Fastest Selling Digital Single, like, ever. It flew to No. 1 on the iTunes singles chart just 50 minutes after it was released, according to Digital Spy.
She was also named the first solo female with two million-selling weeks on the U.S. album chart since it began tracking sales in 1991, which is a tremendous feat. It seems like she’s continually adding more accomplishments to her portfolio. As she begins plans for her next album, we can’t wait to see what she’ll achieve.
Swift’s other world records were booked in 2012 and include Fastest Selling Digital Album by a Female Artist for her album ‘Speak Now,’ and Most Simultaneous U.S. Hot 100 Hits by a Female Artist. When she nailed the record, the songstress had 11 back-to-back singles on the charts.
With her newest world records, the ‘Everything Has Changed’ hitmaker is in the company of astounding actress Betty White, who holds the record for Longest TV Career for an Entertainer (Female). Plus, Swift’s former boyfriend, Harry Styles, snatched up the award for Highest Debut by a U.K. Group on the US Singles Chart with his band, One Direction.
It’s just another day in the world of Swift — breaking world records and winning awards. Congrats to the talented singer — her accomplishments are an inspiration to musicians worldwide!
