Swift won her first Album of The Year at the Grammy Awards in 2010 for her second studio album Fearless. She took home the trophy at the tender age of 20, becoming the youngest artist in history at the time to win the accolade. Billie Eilish now holds this honour after winning the same award in 2020, for her album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? at only 18.

Only woman to replace herself at No. 1 on the Hot 100

She said “I’ll be the man” and she proved it. Swift’s “Blank Space” dethroned her own song “Shake It Off” at the top of the Hot 100 list in 2014, and she became the first female artist to achieve this feat.

She replaced herself on the chart once again when “Is It Over Now (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)” terminated “Cruel Summer”‘s two-week reign at No. 1. The Beatles, Boyz II Men, Puff Daddy, Ja Rule, Nelly, OutKast, Usher, T.I., Black Eyed Peas, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Drake, and BTS are the only other acts who have ever replaced themselves at number one.

Taylor has received more American Music Awards than any other singer in history, so it’s only logical that she was named Artist of the Decade in 2019. Her tremendous impact on the music scene is evident from her achievements and her huge following.

The first-ever recipient of Billboard’s Woman of the Decade Award

Taylor Swift was the first winner of Billboard’s Woman of the Decade Award, and she accepted it at the 2019 Women in Music Event. Taylor Swift gave a gripping 15-minute speech criticising toxic male privilege and discussing how the industry is different for a woman.

She received the accolade on the fateful eve of her 30th birthday, and said her twenties were defined by trying to cope with her haters’ criticism, stating that shortly after releasing her second album Fearless in 2008, she quickly learned that ‘as a female in this industry, some people will always have slight reservations about you’. She went on to discuss her ongoing feud with manager Scooter Braun for the rights to own her music and called out other musicians who stood by him. “Let me just say that the definition of the toxic male privilege in our industry is people saying, ‘Well, he’s always been nice to me,’ when I’m raising valid concerns about artists and their rights to own their music. Of course, he’s nice to you. If you’re in this room you have something he needs.”

Most No. 1 hits on Billboard’s US Digital Song Sales chart

Swift holds the Guinness World Record for the most No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales list.

On February 6, 2010, “Today Was a Fairytale” led her to the peak for the first time.

Swift’s quarantine alternative album Folklore won the Album of the Year Grammy in 2021, making her the only woman to receive the award three times. Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, and Paul Simon are the only other artists to have received this award three times.

Longest song in history to reach No. 1

If you’re a Swiftie, you can probably guess the song. For nearly 50 years, the longest song that reached #1 on the Hot 100 was Don McLean’s “American Pie (Parts I & II)”, which spans 8 minutes and 37 seconds. Eventually, in 2021, Taylor Swift’s 10-minute-and-13-second song “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault)” shattered the record and became the new longest No. 1. It’s an extended version of her own song “All Too Well,” which was released on Red in 2012, and fans were searching for it since they learned about its existence.

Most Video of the Year wins at VMAs

Taylor Swift took home a total of nine victories at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. Swift’s “Anti-Hero,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks, setting a new record for the songstress, was named video of the year. This was her fourth victory in the category, and now she holds the title for most Video of the Year winner on the VMAs. She previously won for “Bad Blood” (with Kendrick Lamar in 2015), “You Need to Calm Down” (2019), and “All Too Well: The Short Film” (2022). Swift became the first artist in VMA history to win back-to-back awards in this category, increasing her streak for the most victories — no one else has won more than two.
