Taylor Swift is the queen of turning breakups into hit songs, but the singer has revealed that she would only consider one of her album to be fully inspired by heartbreak.

The 30-year-old hitmaker shared her thoughts about her music catalog in a new feature by Rolling Stone and Apple Music.

Taylor explained: ‘I look back on this [Red] as my true breakup album, every other album has flickers of different things.

‘But this was an album that I wrote specifically about pure, absolute, to the core, heartbreak.’

Indeed, songs like We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, All Too Well, and The Last Time are definitely break-up bangers.

It’s long been rumored that those specific tracks were inspired by the singer’s failed relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.

But tracks like I Knew You Were Trouble and Sad Beautiful Tragic have also become fan-favorites for their coverage of heartbreak.

Meanwhile Taylor has been busy breaking yet another record with her latest album Folklore after it became the first to sell over 1million copies in 2020.

The singer released the stripped back album, that nods back to her country roots, in July and, naturally, the record debuted at number one.

And according to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor’s album sold another 57,000 copies in the US in the week ending October 22.

Data gathered by Nielsen Music/MRC Date recorded that Folklore’s album sales has now reached over 1.038million copies and such numbers have made it the first album to pass that million mark this year in the US.

And, not that we’re surprised, Taylor’s last album Lover was the only album to sell a million copies in the US in 2019 – selling 1.09million last year.
