The lead track sold 71,000 copies in its first week and was streamed 34 million times.

Cardigan wasn’t the only instant success. The song The 1 debuted at number four while Exile featuring Bon Iver came in the sixth spot. 

With this, Taylor is now the female artist with the most Hot 100 entries, boasting an impressive 113. 

She is only outdone by Drake, who has 224, the Glee cast, with 207, and Lil Wayne with 169.

Taylor secured her seventh number one album in the US on Sunday evening.

The singer’s surprise studio album topped the charts in the United States, earning 846,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 30, data from Nielsen Music/MRC has revealed (via Billboard)

It has been revealed as the largest debut week for an album since her own release in 2019, where Lover debuted with 867,000 units. 

Her two albums are only beaten by another of her own – Reputation, which was unveiled in 2017 and sold 1.24 million units. 

Of the 846,000 album equivalent units Folklore sold, 615,000 of these units were for full album sales.

Thrilled: Taylor was also wowed by the accomplishment, tweeting a funny reaction with a Dwayne Johnson GIF

The 289.85 million streams of the tracks on the album converted to 218,000 in streaming equivalent album (SEA) units, plus 13,000 in track equivalent album (TEA) units. 

Only a week in and Taylor’s new album is already 2020’s top selling album, bigger than BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7, which sold 574,000 since February. 

The singer had recently revealed she didn’t tell her friends she was making the LP, before its release on July 24.

‘No one knew I was making an album. I didn’t even tell my friends until right before the announcement,’ Swift said during a fan Q&A event.

‘It was my own secret world I’d go to and I’ve never made music like that before,’ she added.

Swift also becomes the only artist in history with seven albums to sell at least 500,000 copies in a single week.

No one knew: 'No one knew I was making an album. I didn't even tell my friends until right before the announcement,' Swift said during a fan Q&A event

Hilary Duff has been spending plenty of quality family time with her husband and kids during quarantine.

But the former Disney star is ready to get back to her routine, as Hollywood bounces back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

She added some punk to her mom-on-the-go look, as she grabbed lunch at an Italian deli in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles, during a busy day of errands.

The 32-year-old donned a plain white v-neck t-shirt, tied at the waist, with a mid-length satin grey cheetah print skirt.

She accessorized with diamond hoop earrings, a silver watch, silver and gold rings and a black face mask.

Hilary carried a quilted black leather handbag on a gold chain, strapped across her chest, as she grabbed her takeout.

She finished the ensemble with a pair of maroon leather Gucci boots, featuring large gold-encrusted jewels on the strap, paired with shimmering black and gold socks.

She’s preparing to return to the set of Younger in a few weeks, after COVID-19 forced production to shutdown on the seventh (and likely last) season back in March.

Creator Darren Starr told TVLine earlier this week: ‘We are unofficially planning [Season 7] as a final season.’ 

But a spinoff based on Hilary’s book publisher character Kelsey Peters was announced in development back in May.

Meanwhile, the fate of Hilary’s Lizzie McGuire reboot, which hit a snag in production back in January, is still up in the air. 

After filming two episodes, original show creator Terri Minsky exited the project as showrunner, over apparent disagreements with Disney+ over the mature nature of some of the content.

Hilary updated E! News back in July: ‘We are very much still in conversation with them a couple of times a week, which is really nice.

‘We started shooting, and then obviously that got on hold for a couple of different reasons not involving the pandemic, but you know what, I have high hopes that we are going to make it work.’ 

The So Yesterday artist has also suggest moving the show to Hulu, so that the show can grown with its fanbase for a more authentic adult experience.

She added: ‘It’s like a responsibility to [Lizzie], honoring her and the fanbase that grew up with her. We kind of put her on pause, and had to go back to the drawing board, but I feel optimistic that it will happen.’

Hilary starred as the titular preteen girl on the Disney Channel show, which originally ran for two seasons, from 2001 to 2004, also sparking a 2003 movie, which got a wide theatrical release.

She’s left her fans and admirers guessing as to whether she is indeed expecting her third child.

And model April Love Geary was again seen in a lovely pink ensemble in Malibu, California on Saturday morning, making an early grocery run so as to avoid the large weekend crowds.

The 25-year-old wife of Robin Thicke wore an empire waist dress in a soft-looking material that only amplified rumors that she looks pregnant.

The 5ft11in beauty strode along behind her shopping cart with her blondish hair down, covering up with a pink floral face mask and thick sunglasses. 

Geary’s dress featured a wrapped bust and short sleeves, and the billowing skirt ended just below her knees. 

The garment definitely fanned out, giving the impression of a growing baby bump underneath.

To complete the look, April wore tan sandal flats.

Robin and April, who have been wed since 2014, already share two young children – daughters Mia Love, two, and Lola Alain, one. 

Lola’s middle name is for her late grandfather, Robin’s dad Alan Thicke of Growing Pains fame.

Alan died at the age of 69 in 2016. 

Robin, 43, also has a 10-year-old son named Julian, whom he shares with his ex-wife, actress Paula Patton. 

On Thursday, April chose a different, tighter pink ensemble that appeared to show signs of a baby bump.

And while she has yet to confirm the pregnancy speculation, she did take to social media last month to brush off the internet trolls who have criticized her for her figure after she had two children.

‘Just letting you know that I’m not really bothered by all your guys’ comments when you say I was “so much more attractive” when I was skinnier,’ she said.

‘Because before having babies, I didn’t have this fat a** and I am forever grateful for this baby weight,’ April added cheekily.

ant mcpartlin dotes on declan donnellys beautiful daughter isla in radio chat

They’ve been close pals since working together on Byker Grove in the 1990s.

And Ant McPartlin, 44, showed he was every inch the proud ‘uncle’ as he doted on Declan Donnelly’s two-year-old daughter during a candid radio chat on Monday.

During the interview, Dec also sweetly revealed that little Isla calls him ‘Dec Dec’ after his wife Ali Astall, 42, taught the youngster to say ‘daddy Dec’.

While chatting on Steve and Karen’s Breakfast Show on TFM, the duo discussed Isla and how Ant gets stuck in with the fun when he visits.

Ant said: ‘I haven’t done a nappy. I was round yours the other day. We were doing a lot of playing in the garden – she’s absolutely beautiful.’

Also during the show, Dec revealed his little girl had started speaking and had recently learned how to say his name.

‘She has just turned two a couple of weeks ago, running around and talking – we are getting words out of her,’ he said.

Oh baby! Dec announced his and Ali's little girl Isla had been born on Instagram, saying he was already 'head over heels' for his daughter

The proud dad then revealed: ‘My wife has taught her to say daddy Dec, she just shouts Dec, Dec.’

However the doting father added that he’s not been a fan of changing little Isla’s nappies, joking that it’s ‘a whole new world’.

He said: ‘I take her near Ali and say “I think she’s done a poo, you better go and check”, but you do everything it takes to avoid doing a nappy.’

Ant, who was taking a hiatus from presenting at the time after a stint in rehab, was one of the first people to visit baby Isla after she was born in September 2018.

Congratulations: Ant was quick to congratulate Dec after Isla was born in September 2018

A source told The Sun: ‘Ant couldn’t wait to see Dec and Ali – and baby Isla of course. It’s a dream come true for them all and everyone is completely besotted.’

The star also congratulated his friend, tweeting: ‘Welcome to the world, baby Isla Elizabeth Anne. Can’t wait for cuddles. I love you already! Uncle Ant xxxxx’.

Since then Dec, Ali and Isla have often been seen with Ant and his girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett. He was previously married to Lisa Armstrong but announced they had split in January 2018.

Fabulous duo: Since appearing together on Byker Grove in the 1990s Ant and Dec have gone on to become TV favourites with presenting gigs on I'm A Celeb and Britain's Got Talent
