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 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.
