Pop star Taylor Swift has had an abundantly successful career lasting almost twenty years. She has won over 500 music awards and continues to break records with her sales and streaming numbers.

With a total of ten new studio albums, two re-recorded studio albums, five extended plays, and four live albums, it’s difficult for the pop star to pick just one as her favorite. Swift has sold an estimated 114 million album units worldwide, which begs the question: which album is the pop star’s most successful?


Swift’s 2014 album ‘1989′ stands out as the best-selling album ever released by the artist. In total, the album has sold over 14,332,116 copies worldwide.

With classic hits like ‘Style,’ ‘Blank Space,’ and ‘Bad Blood’ this album dominated the charts in the year of its release.

The fifth studio album marked a significant milestone in Swift’s career, as she defined herself as a pop artist and moved away from her country music singer roots.

At the time of its release, record sales for artists were generally low due to the emergence of digital download and streaming platforms, which makes Swift’s record sales even more impressive.

‘1989′ allowed Swift to become the first artist to have three albums sell one million copies within the first week, a record she beat with later albums.


Swift’s album ‘1989′ is closely followed by her 2008 album, ‘Fearless’, which has sold 11,901,000 units globally. In the United States, the album has sold 7,210,000 copies as of October 2020.

‘Fearless’ has been consistently charting on either the US Top Country Albums chart or US Billboard 200 chart for over a decade since its initial release. Swift, who was only 20 at the time, was honored at the Grammy Awards for being “one of the most important singer-songwriters of her generation.”

Swift has re-recorded her entire album and included previously unreleased tracks since its initial release. The re-recording, which was released in 2021, was incredibly popular and sold 291,000 units in its first week, both through album sales and streaming.


Although her latest release ‘Midnights’ isn’t her best-selling album, it could break Swift’s own sales record. ‘Midnights’ broke a new record by selling six million album-equivalent units in its first eight weeks.
