As Taylor Swift’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version) enjoys its sixth frame on the Billboard 200 in the most recent chart week, we’re taking one more look at how the re-recorded album -- the first in a six-album project that the pop superstar first announced in 2019 -- has performed when comparing its weekly listenership to the original Fearless, which helped make Swift a superstar upon its 2008 release and won the Grammy for album of the year.
On this week’s Billboard 200, Fearless (Taylor’s Version) slips to No. 35, down from No. 19 on last week’s tally. The re-recorded set earned 17,000 equivalent album units for the chart week dated May 29, according to MRC Data, a drop-off from 20,000 equivalent album units in the previous chart week.
