Taylor Swift becomes first artist in US chart history to score a Number 1 debut on the singles and albums charts in the same week

Taylor Swift completes a run of first-week feats with her new album by setting a US chart first.

Taylor Swift has become the first artist in US chart history to score a Number 1 debut on both the Billboard singles and albums charts this week.

Taylor's new album Folklore landed at the top of the Billboard 200 earlier this week, marking her seventh chart-topping album in America, while the record's trailer single Cardigan debuts at the summit of the Hot 100 today (August 4) - her sixth chart-topping song. 

The feat is the latest in a string of records for the collection, which was released on July 24, announced just 17 hours prior.

Taylor's label Republic Records reported that 1.3 million copies of Folklore were sold within one day of its release. The album also broke the first-day album streams record for a female artist, with 80.6 million global plays in 24 hours. 

All 16 of the album's songs enter this week's US singles chart chart, meaning Taylor now has the most Hot 100 hits among female artists, with 113. She overtakes Nicki Minaj's 110. 

In the UK, Folklore debuted at Number 1 with 37,000 chart sales. It's Taylor's fifth consecutive chart-topping album in the UK, making her only the fifth female artist to score five or more UK Number 1 albums - joining Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion.
