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).
