A few days ago, to anyone’s surprise, Taylor Swift‘s new album, Lover, reached number 1 on Billboard’s album charts. It was Swift’s sixth record number 1, recording the biggest sales week of any album since its last reputation was released in 2017.
In general, it was expected to remain in position n. ° 1 for at least another week or two, but now he is fighting a battle with an enemy that most of his fans have never heard of: Tool.
Tool’s Fear Inoculum is currently accumulating large numbers in its first week, and is expected to achieve album sales of up to 300,000 in the US. UU. (According to Forbes), which would put him comfortably in the # 1 position ahead of Lover, which expects sales of 260,000 in his second week. Fear Inoculum is already ahead of Lover on the iTunes album charts in Australia and the United States, with Norman Fucking Rockwell by Lana Del Rey! arriving in third place.
Swift fans, most of whom are not terribly familiar with Tool’s progressive metal varieties, are now losing their minds at the possibility of Lover being removed from the lists.
Taylor vs. Tool is the fight of the century. https://t.co/ffwnBylVBy

Tool fans, meanwhile, are wasting no time in throwing shit at Taylor Swift fans.
