Taylor Swift beats The Beatles to score UK chart double for second week

'Midnights' beat the 'Revolver' reissue to the albums top spot, with 'Anti-Hero' still the Number One single

Taylor Swift has beaten The Beatles to the top of the UK charts, scoring the chart double for a second week in a row.

The US artist held off the challenge of Arctic Monkeys last Friday (October 28) to reach the top spot, with new album ‘Midnights’ becoming the fastest-selling album of the year so far in the UK. In the US meanwhile, she became the first act in history to land 10 tracks in Billboard‘s Hot 100 song chart.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Swift would be challenged by The Beatles’ reissue of their classic album ‘Revolver’ for the top spot, but she has held on to remain at Number One on the album charts, with the song ‘Anti-Hero’ also scoring a second week at the top of the singles chart.
