This seems like something only TAYLOR SWIFT could do in 2021: The re-recorded version of her 2008 album “Fearless” not only debuts at the top of the Billboard 200, it also had the biggest sales week of any album so far this year.
It sold 291,000 copies . . . so SUCK IT, Scooter Braun! (???) It’s Taylor’s NINTH #1 album.
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.
In other chart action, “The Best of DMX” jumped from #73 to #2 after his death. It’s his highest-charting album.
