She’s the first act to have the year’s top-selling album five times since MRC Data’s first full year of tracking in 1992.
Taylor Swift’s Folklore finishes 2020 as the top-selling album of the year in the U.S., and the only album to sell at least a million copies during the year, according to MRC Data. Plus, the superstar has now claimed the top-selling album of the year five times — becoming the first act to earn the honor dating to MRC Data’s first full year of tracking in 1992.
Folklore was released on July 24 and sold 1.276 million copies through Dec. 31, 2020.
Swift also logged the top-selling album of the year in the U.S. in 2019 (Lover, 1.09 million), 2017 (Reputation, 1.9 million), 2014 (1989, 3.66 million) and 2009 (Fearless, 3.22 million).
