During the Eras Tour concert, Taylor announced that she would be releasing her version of her mega-successful pop album in October.

Taylor’s ‘1989‘ gave her a position as one of the biggest pop stars with hits like ‘Shake It Off‘ and ‘Blank Space‘. For months, the album was ranked among Billboard’s top 20 albums chart. The album got massive success upon its release in 2014, almost a decade ago.
Now after the re-recording has been dropped, within less than 24 hours, the Taylor’s Version managed to break a few records.
