Taylor Swift reveals the meaning behind new songs amid rumours

Taylor Swift has broken one more record in her music career.

On the album chart, there was very little notable upward or downward action to speak of at all - aside from the complete disappearance of holiday albums from the top 100 in the charting period that began New Year's Day and ended January 7.

As Billboard reports, folklore sold 1.276 million copies through December 21, according to MRC Data, which provides Billboard with its sales numbers.

As the singer's ninth studio album, Evermore, returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a third nonconsecutive week, Swift now has a cumulative 51 weeks at No. 1 across all eight of her chart-toping albums.

Her four other albums that hit the milestone are her 2019 album Lover, her 2017 album Reputation, her 2014 album 1989 and her 2009 album Fearless.

Swift followed up Folklore's surprise July release with the another surprise album Evermore, which she dropped last month.

Taylor Swift's "Evermore" reclaimed the top position on the album chart, landing at No. 1 after ceding that spot last week to a debuting Playboi Carti release.

It was helped by the fading of holiday playlists and the release of a "deluxe" version that appended two new songs. "How you always know before you know, you know?"

Swifties speculated that the latter was about pal Karlie Kloss, dissecting the lyric: 'When the words of a sister come back in whispers / That prove she was not in fact who she seemed / Not a twin from your dreams / She's a crook who was caught'.
