In 2006, she released her debut single "Tim McGraw", then her self-titled debut album, which was subsequently certified multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
In November 2008, Swift released her second album, Fearless, which featured a number of more pop oriented songs such as "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story". Fearless was the best-selling album in 2009 in the USA and was awarded with 4 Grammy's.
Swift's third and fourth albums, 2010's "Speak Now" and 2012's "Red", both sold over one million copies within the first week of their US release. “Speak Now” won two Grammy Awards, while “Red’s” singles " We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together " and " I Knew You Were Trouble" were worldwide hits.
The 1989 was released on October 27, 2014. It marked a move away from her earlier country sounds and fully into pop. Both the title ("1989") and the overall sound of the album - synth pop - were a nod to her birth year and nostalgia with the 1980s. It became the best-selling album of 2014, selling 3.66m copies in USA, and as of April 2015, it had sold 4.5m copies in the US (9m worldwide). The first single from the album was "Shake It Off" (released on August 18, 2014), which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
On February 15, 2016, Taylor Swift won "album of the year" at the 58th Grammy Awards for "1989".

- LyricsWe were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air
- LyricsYou're on the phone with your girlfriend
She's going off about something that you said
'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do
I'm in my room
- LyricsI remember when we broke up the first time
Saying, "This is it, I've had enough," 'cause like
We hadn't seen each other in a month
When you said you needed space. (What?)
Then you come around again and say
- LyricsSay you're sorry
That face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
As I paced back and forth all this time
'Cause I honestly believed in you
- LyricsI stay up too late, got nothing in my brain
That's what people say mmm, that's what people say mm
I go on too many dates, but I can't make 'em stay
At least that's what people say mmm, that's what people say mmm
But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving
