Taylor Swift Biography (Wikipedia)
Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage and critical praise. At age 14, Swift became the youngest artist signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house and, at age 15, she signed her first record deal. Her 2006 eponymous debut album was the longest-charting album of the 2000s in the US. Its third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008. Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", it became the US' best-selling album of 2009, won four Grammy Awards—including the Album of the Year—and was certified Diamond by the RIAA.
Swift's 2010 album Speak Now, solely written by her, and fourth album, Red (2012) both sold over a million copies in its first week in the US, and the latter yielded her first Billboard Hot 100 number-one single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together". Her fifth album and first all-pop project, 1989 (2014), won three Grammy Awards, including the Album of the Year, and produced the number-one singles "Shake It Off" and "Blank Space", which made Swift the first woman to replace herself at the top spot on the Hot 100. Her sixth album, Reputation (2017), made her the only act to have four consecutive albums each sell one million copies in their first week in the US and yielded her fifth number-one song on the Hot 100, "Look What You Made Me Do". With her seventh album, Lover (2019), Swift became the first woman in U.S. history to have six albums sell over 500,000 copies in their opening weeks.
