Taylor Swift is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and the youngest recipient in history of the music industrys highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure (2010s Speak Now and 2012s RED). Shes the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums, and while shes been named one of Time magazines 100 Most Influential People in the World.
As Billboards only artist to receive this nod twice and youngest-ever Woman of the Year prepares to release her fifth album, 1989, she finds herself, as always, in the glare of a blinding spotlight of expectation but if you think that scares her, you havent been paying attention. She calls 1989 her most sonically cohesive collection, and armed with a multiple-week international No. 1 debut single, Shake It Off, shes ready to blaze into the next phase of her still-young career.
