9 Key Numbers Ahead of ‘Taylor’s Version’

These statistics, which include No. 1 singles, album sales, and tour receipts, help illustrate Swift's enormous success with her 2014 album.

The final performance of this leg of Taylor Swift's Eras world tour took place on Wednesday night (Aug. 9 - 8/9, get it? ),

 and the singer fulfilled fans' wildest fantasies: 1989 (Taylor's Version) was unquestionably approaching.

Her historic 2014 album, which will be released on October 27 - nine years to the day that the original 1989 was unveiled - would be the fourth album in the superstar's six-part re-recording project.

When it was released last month, the most recent song made the biggest debut on the Billboard 200 chart of the year, while the first two songs topped the chart when they were released in 2021.

Although each of Swift's studio albums is a commercial success in some way, 1989 is particularly crucial to her narrative. With singles like "Blank Space," "Shake It Off," "Style," and "Bad Blood,"

After years of pushing the sonic boundaries of country music, the album was seen as an embrace of full-on pop music.
