Taylor Swift’s latest surprise album, Evermore, has topped this week’s new music poll.
Music fans voted in a poll published in Billboard, choosing the 31-year-old pop superstar’s second surprise set of 2020 as their favorite new music release of the past week.
Evermore brought in 73% of the vote, beating out new music by Kid Cudi (Man on the Moon III: The Chosen), Gwen Stefani (“Let Me Reintroduce Myself”), The Kid LAROI and Juice WRLD (“Reminds Me of You”), Chris Cornell (No One Sings Like You Anymore), and others.
Evermore follows Swift’s first surprise album of the year, Folklore, which arrived in July. The new 15-track set dropped Friday and finds Swift reuniting with Folklore collaborators Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff and Justin Vernon.
This is Swift’s second fan-voted favorite new music release in recent months. In late November, Swifties helped push the singer’s live album, Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Session, to the top spot that week. The live set was accompanied by a Disney+ film documenting the making of Folklore.
Placing second on the past week’s tally with 15% of the vote was rapper Kid Cudi’s trilogy-capping album, Man On The Moon III: The Chosen, which arrives one decade after the second edition.
The new 18-track album is divided into four acts and features guest appearances by Pop Smoke (“Show Out”), Phoebe Bridgers (“Lovin’ Me”) and Tripple Redd (“Rockstar Knights”).
The 36-year-old rapper first blasted off with Man on the Moon: The End of Day in 2009, earning him three Grammy nominations, two of which were for his Hot 100 No. 3 hit “Day ‘N’ Nite.”
Coming in third was the “other” category with 5% of the vote, followed by Stefani’s new single “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” in fourth with about 3% of the vote.
