Taylor’s topping the charts again (Picture: Rex)

Taylor Swift has even more cause for celebration this week after securing her fourth UK number one album.

The 29-year-old’s seventh studio album Lover knocked her old friend Ed Sheeran off the top spot with his No.6 Collaborations Project, after Taylor’s album was bought 35,000 times and racked up an impressive 27 million track streams.

Lover joins Taylor’s previous UK number one albums Red, 1989 and Reputation, making her the only female artist to top the list as many times this decade. You go girl!

Fans have been obsessing over the lyrics to Taylor’s new music ever since it dropped last week, paying particular attention to the songs which reference her notably private relationship with British actor Joe Alwyn.

The star of The Favourite is the subject of London Boy, a song which namechecks a number of popular (and erm, less popular) London landmarks.

Fans even thought that the easter-egg crazy Taylor had chosen locations which marked out a heart on a map, but we sadly debunked this rumour.

Sorry, Swifties!

The album debuted to positive reviews

Metro gave Taylor’s new album four stars, writing: ‘On Lover, Taylor Swift shakes off a reputation and returns to her old self, just a little bruised around the edges and ready to move on.’
