Taylor Swift‘s surprise album “Folklore” exceeds 1.3 Million Sold Globally in 24 Hours.

In under 24 hours, Taylor Swift’s 5 Star album folklore sold over 1.3 million copies around the world. It also shattered “the global record for first-day album streams on Spotify by a female artist” with 80.6 million streams and delivered “the most-streamed pop album on Apple Music in 24 hours” with 35.47M streams. Additionally, folklore set the U.S. and Worldwide Amazon Music Indie/Alternative Streaming Record.

Folklore is the ten-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, record-breaking superstar’s eighth album. folklore arrives as Taylor’s highest rated critically acclaimed album on Metacritic, currently ranked 96.5.

“Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the “perfect” time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed,” said Taylor.

This spectacular 16-song album was produced by Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff and Taylor Swift and features a musical collaboration with Bon Iver. Vinyl, CD and Cassette editions of the album will feature one bonus track.

“Cardigan” – the first official single release from folklore – is also released today. It is written by Taylor Swift and Aaron Dessner and produced by Aaron Dessner. The accompanying music video was directed by Taylor Swift.

Though Swift was initially unsure about the release of the album, she says she came to realize that if “My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world.” Country singer turned pop star, Taylor Swift has had a long history of feuds and drama, but it appears she is putting that behind her on this album, as she did on her 2019 album “Lover.” “I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears,and musings into (the album)” she says.
