Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the release of Taylor’s 1989 and the record is still KILLING it. 1989 is the fifth album EVER to spend the entire year in the Billboard 200’s Top 10. This album was a major turning point for Taylor musically as it marked her first FULL album in pop music and it certified and solidified her as a major pop-star. 1989 was everything that her fans were expecting and more. She took her songwriting abilities and her musicality and her vocals to an entirely different level and I think she was able to reach out to a larger audience through this record.
