The new version is the only re-recording of a previously released album to hit #1.  It also makes Taylor the first woman with three new #1 albums in less than a year . . . and she has three of the top 5-selling albums of 2021.

The original “Fearless” also debuted at #1 on November 29th of 2008 . . . and it spent 11 nonconsecutive weeks there.
