These past few weeks have been big ones for Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, as both superstar artists released new albums with massive results!

The Pennsylvania native smashed a number of benchmarks with Folklore, including 80.6 million Spotify streams in a single day (the highest-ever tally for a female artist), 846,000 copies sold (making it the best-selling record of the year in just seven days) making Swift the first artist in US chart history to have seven albums sell more than 500,000 copies in a single week; and the first female artist to have seven albums debut at #1. Listen to the new effort, courtesy of Taylor Swift’s own label, here.

In addition to receiving massive fan support, Adele gave Beyoncé a very special shoutout via Instagram with a picture depicting the “Hello” singer, almost unrecognizable in her new body and hairstyle, crouching beneath a picture of the Houston native with the caption “Thank you Queen for always making us all feel so loved through your art ♥️♥️.” Check out the post below as well as the full The Lion King: The Gift album.
