Country superstar, actress, and girlfriend-with-a-built-in-expiration-date Taylor Swift has yet another feather to put in her beret—the 21-year-old has now sold over 20 million albums.
That’s a milestone most artists have to wait for far longer than a breezy six years—and usually they have more than three proper albums under their belt. That makes the blonde country music juggernaut one of the top-selling artists to emerge from the 2000s.
So who are her nearest songstress competitors? The Alpha American Idol Kelly Clarkson is just ahead of Swift with 23 million albums sold worldwide, but the Fearless singer is leading fellow country chanteuse Carrie Underwood by four million records on the global stage.
So congrats, Taylor. You belong to millions of us.
