Taylor Swift’s new album, “The Tortured Poets Department”, has a 5,600% increase in profanity from her first album.  She swears a total of 57 times.  (Compared to just once on her debut.)

The song “Down Bad” has the most with 18, followed by “Florida!!!” with 12.  Taylor’s most-used cuss word is the classic F-bomb.

In recent years, her use of profanity seems to DOUBLE with each album.  Someone on Reddit joked that if that trend continues, she’ll be using the F-word 24,000 times five albums from now.  (You can see the chart, here.)

Of course, “The Tortured Poets Department” debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart.  She ties with Jay-Z for the most number one albums for solo artists.  They each have 14.  The Beatles hold the overall spot with 20 #1 albums.

She sold 2.6 million units . . . the most since Adele’s album “25” in 2015.  On Instagram, Taylor said, “My mind is blown.  I’m completely floored by the love you have shown this album.”  (Her “thank you” did NOT include any profanity.)

One last note:  If that 2.6 million number holds, it will be the second-biggest opening sales week of all time in the U.S., behind “25”.

That bumps “No Strings Attached” by ‘N Sync to THIRD.  It sold 2.4 million copies in its first week back in 2000.  And that was ACTUAL copies, before they included streaming.
