Singing sensation Taylor Swift secured her 14th chart-topping album with her latest The Tortured Poets Department album making a strong debut at number one position on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

She ties Jay-Z for the most No. 1s among soloists in the nearly-70-year history of the chart, reported Billboard.

The Tortured Poets Department launched with 2.61 million equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending April 25, with traditional album sales (purchases of digital download albums, CDs, vinyl LPs and cassettes) comprising 1.914 million of that sum, reported the website.

It is Swift's 14th album to claim the top post on the chart.

Swift, one of the most popular singers globally, is currently tied with Jay-Z for the second-most No. 1 albums by a recording artist.

They are just behind iconic band The Beatles.

Reacting to the development and thanking his fans for loving his latest musical offering, Taylor Swift posted on Instagram: "My mind is blown. I’m completely floored by the love you’ve shown this album.2.6 million ARE YOU ACTUALLY SERIOUS?? Thank you for listening, streaming, and welcoming Tortured Poets into your life. Feeling completely overwhelmed. I was already so fired up to get back to the tour but you doing THIS?? May 9th can’t come soon enough."
