The assertion goes on to add that Swift’s ninth studio album, Evermore, released in December 2020, will be submitted to the Grammys for thought in all suitable classes. Swift’s determination leaves home for voters to emphasis on Evermore, somewhat than perhaps break up their votes among the two tasks.

The Recording Academy, which offers the Grammys, and the Region Audio Assn. declined to comment.

The shock album, which arrived out 5 months after Swift’s Grammy album of the calendar year winner Folklore, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, offering Swift eight consecutive No. 1 debuts. Evermore returned to No. 1 this June for a fourth nonconsecutive 7 days, earning Swift the artist with the 3rd-most weeks at No. 1 on the all-genre album chart powering The Beatles and Elvis Presley. In accordance to MRC Data’s midyear report, introduced July 13, Evermore is the prime-marketing vinyl album of the year, with additional than 143,000 copies sold, and ranks No. 8 in terms of all round album use at 818,000 units.

Swift remade Fearless after Scooter Braun’s 2019 buy of her previous label, Huge Device Label Group, which features the rights to her initially six albums. Very last yr, Braun’s Ithaca Holdings offered the catalog to Shamrock Holdings.

Swift landed at No. 2 on Billboard’s World-wide Dollars Makers list, released Monday, with an estimated overall profits of $41.4 million.
