Taylor Swift Beats Jonas Brothers Record

Taylor Swift Beats Jonas Brothers Record

Taylor Swift just broke a new record with “White Horse,” a track from her new album Fearless that was featured on the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy.

The soulful song will debut at #13 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 singles chart this week, giving the 18-year-old country cutie her 6th Top 20 debut of 2008. This breaks the all-time Billlboard record for the number of Top 20 debuts in a calendar year by any artist.

The previous record with five Top 20 Debuts this year was held by her ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas‘s pop-rock group, The Jonas Brothers.

Taylor‘s other five songs that made the Top 20 include “Change”, “Fearless”, “You’re Not Sorry”, “You Belong With Me” and “Love Story”.

Fearless also sold 592,304 units in its first week of sales (her last album sold 3.5 million). Comparatively, the JoBros sold over 525,000 units of their latest album, A Little Bit Longer (their last album sold 1.5 million).

    that’s technically true but, it’s not joe’s fault because he didn’t end the phone call; taylor did because she didn’t want to hear what he had to say and she was pissed off.

    boo. i bet half the people who bought fearless hadn’t heard of her until she started dating joe jonas – she totally got the jonas bump and now she’s being all bitter and dramaqueen all over joe. whatever. she sucks.

    to swan #7
    are you dumb? she was a country breakthrough before she started dating joe jonas. don’t make stupid assumptions because you’re a jobros fan. most people would agree that taylor swift is the more musically talented one, anyway, so i don’t know where you got the whole “she sucks” thing.

    at # 7 and 10#

    her first album actually out sold any of the JB albums…
    so she doesn’t need JB OR Joe to sell her albuns

    but you’re right about one thing JB did help her become more known among little kids and girls who now hate her…and I doubt those represent even one third of her sales

    YAYYYYYY!!!!! i am soooooo happy for her and her absolutely amazing success!!!! she totally deserves it!!! she has grown sooo much as a singer, artist, person, songwriter since her first cd came out and her new cd shows that beautifully. her vocal and songwriting talents are soaring ahah she is the most talented young country female artist of today!!! glad that she has beat the Jobros on some records haha because she deserves it and is, in my mind,much more talented than them, or actually i guess its pretty hard to compare them since they are both talented in their own ways!! i mean who cares that Carrie Underwood beat out Taylor for CMA awards female vocalist of the year for the 3rd year now, carrie deserved that and now taylor has this and deserves this and they both have their incredible success!!!

    regardless no one should break up with someone over the phone!!! grow up

    Jackie Says:

    YEAH Ann!

    I guess only some JB fans and Joe himself doesn’t get that this is what makes him the bad guy…

    not how long the call lasted -although ANYONE would have hung up on a guy who just dumped you
    not why it was done

    but HOW it was done

    anna Says:

    #20 you are soo wrong, I know lots of girls in their 20s who boys jonas brothers albums. the only reason taylor got a litle bit more copies sold is because she has been around way longer. plus, the jonas brothers still have tour records over her.

    sweet Says:

    taylor has been around way longer? are u kidding? her debut album came out in 2006
    and she deserves to sell more than those brothers who will be forgotten in 5 years

  24. 24
    Jackie Says:

    anna , actually her 1st album was released on 2006…same as JB’s ”It’s about time”

    and JB actually have been aroud longer than her , not the other way around
    on 2005 they already were opening for big acts while Taylor only started to become famous and tour mid 2006
