Taylor Swift scores fourth UK Number 1 album with Lover

This song, which highlights the misogyny that Swift has dealt with her entire career, is just one of the many powerful tracks on Swift's new album.

The record includes songs "ME!" featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco and "You Need to Calm Down", which has a music video starring a plethora of celebrities and LGBTQ stars including Katy Perry, Laverne Cox, Ellen Degeneres and Adam Rippon.

"Lover", the 29-year-old pop star's seventh album, sold one million in China in its first week of release, Universal Music Group said on Thursday.

Finally, Massive Attack's Mezzanine album returns to the Official Albums Chart Top 40 at Number 35 this week thanks to a 20 anniversary reissue. Swift fan or not, the album is important for this day and age because of her quick approach in lyrics on hot controversial topics today. In the months after dropping an album, T.Swift would set out on tour, playing shows for fans around the world. So, will Swift keep that same pattern for the Lover era? It's already the biggest sales week for an album in the US since her album reputation dropped in 2017, according to Billboard.

According to maritime traffic monitoring websites, the huge tanker is now just west of the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus. Acting Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borell said that the vessel had been seized at the U.S. request.


The album begins with "I Forgot That You Existed", which perfectly encapsulates powerful post-breakup indifference.

During her interview with On Air With Ryan Seacrest, the Grammy winning artist explained it takes a year and a half to book out stadiums for a tour.

It's just been confirmed by Universal Music Group that Lover has become China's most-consumed worldwide full-length album of 2019. With reputation, I knew that nobody would really fully understand this album until they saw it live because I knew what I had planned for it live was going to make people understand what I had made on the record.

"Now, mind you, I knew her songs because I had them on my running playlist", he said.
