Taylor Swift celebrated the success of her new record, The Tortured Poets Department, by sharing posts on her Instagram account and Story on Sunday.

The 34-year-old performer’s album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart last week, and it earned 2.61 million equivalent album units in its initial period of release.

The project – which covered various topics about the songwriter’s personal life – launched with the largest streaming week ever for a single album and became the singer’s 14th number-one record.

Swift prefaced her post by penning a message in its caption to express that her ‘mind is blown’ and that she was ‘completely floored by the love you’ve shown this album.’

‘Thank you for listening, streaming, and welcoming Tortured Poets into your life. Feeling completely overwhelmed,’ she continued.

The False God singer concluded by writing that she was excited about the upcoming start of the European leg of her Eras tour.

‘I was already so fired up to get back to the tour but you doing THIS?? May 9th can’t come soon enough,’ she wrote.

Swift shared several behind-the-scenes photos from the recording process of her album, which was released last Friday.

The performer also included snaps that featured Post Malone and Florence Welch, both of whom were featured on the record.

According to Billboard, the hitmaker tied with Jay-Z for having the most number-one solo albums in the history of the chart.

The Tortured Poets Department has since become the highest-selling album of the year, with Beyonce’s Cowboy Carter coming in at second place. 

Swift’s past relationship with Joe Alwyn, whom she dated for six years, has been rumored to be one of the major subjects of the record, and a source recently gave Entertainment Tonight an update about where the former couple stands.

‘Taylor and Joe are not in touch at this point, but they try to be respectful of one another,’ they said.

The source went on to remark that the actor had moved past his old relationship and wanted to devote much of his time towards his professional life.

‘Joe wants to keep his personal life private. He is more introverted and the interest about his personal life is a bit overwhelming to him. He is focused on acting and his career,’ they said.

The insider concluded by speaking about how Swift was happy to have moved on with Travis Kelce, whom she has been dating ever since last year. 

‘Taylor is happier than ever in her relationship with Travis and is focused on the future,’ they stated.
