By Taaza Facts

Published on:

The music of Taylor Swift rules Billboard’s main classical chart, as Vitamin String Quartet’s VSQ Performs Taylor Swift opens atop the Classical Albums survey dated May 18.

The 16-song set, originally released in February, enters atop the chart with 3,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. May 3-9, according to Luminate. Of that sum, nearly all is from vinyl sales, following the collection’s release on the format. The LP also opens at No. 15 on the Vinyl Albums chart.

VSQ Performs Taylor Swift encompasses Swift’s catalog from her 2008 album Fearless through 2022’s Midnights; a makeover of the latter’s “Anti-Hero” is the first track on the new release, while fellow Midnights reinterpretation “Snow on the Beach” is also among the tracklist.

Vitamin String Quartet achieves its first No. 1 on Classical Albums, among 10 entries. Here’s a recap of the act’s titles to have made the tally, spotlighting the group’s takes on songs by other high-profile pop stars (including Swift’s “Snow on the Beach” collaborator Lana Del Rey).
