Taylor Swift notched her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart in 2008 with her second studio set ‘Fearless’ and the same album did the magic again for the singer with the re-recorded version.
She’s back atop the list with a re-recorded version of the album, titled Fearless (Taylor’s Version). The new set is her ninth No. 1 and scores the biggest week of 2021 for any album, reports Billboard.
According to the publication, the original Fearless album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated November 29, 2008, and spent 11 nonconsecutive weeks atop the chart.
The singer-songwriter chose to re-record her second album due to the controversial acquisition of the masters for her first six studio efforts by record executive Scooter Braun in June of 2019.
Swift announced she had re-recorded the 2008 album Fearless as Fearless (Taylor’s Version) on February 11. The new 26-track album has re-recordings of all 13 songs on Fearless, along with the six bonus songs added to a 2009 reissue of Fearless (dubbed the Platinum Edition) and the 2010 single “Today Was a Fairytale.”
