Taylor Swift toppled One Directions chart reign
04 Dec 2014
Taylor Swift has reclaimed the No.1 spot in the US overtaking One Direction’s latest release Four.
The Shake It Off singer has seen her album 1989 shoot back to the polo position of the US albums chart after One Direction spent a week at the top with Four.
Taylor Swift’s 1989 has become the fastest-selling record of the decade shifting 2.5million copies in just the US. The album also became Swift’s third record to surpass 1million sales in its first week of release. She is the only star to have achieved this.
She is due to return to the UK next summer when she will headline London’s British Summer Time Hyde Park Festival, along with playing a couple of shows as part of her 1989 world tour in Manchester and Glasgow.
Meanwhile, 1D’s brief stint at the top of the US chart gave the boys their fourth consecutive No.1 album in the US.
The group announced last week that they will bring their On The Road Again world tour to the UK and Ireland starting with a huge show at Cardiff’s Millennium stadium on 6 June. One Directions tour will visit London, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Dublin, Belfast, Newcastle and Sheffield during autumn.
