Taylor Swift gave one of the most powerful speeches after winning Album Of The Year at the 2016 GRAMMYs. 1989 was by far the biggest album of the year. That is not an opinion, it is a fact. There was no other album that outsold it or created the social impact it did. It was even covered by an artist (Ryan Adams) in a completely different genre and put out on the market.
1989 consistently stayed on the top 10 in iTunes, even a year after it’s release. There is no other album that had the year it had. Opinions aside on the type of music one prefers to listen to or the artist one loves. 1989 was the biggest album of the year.
The 2016 GRAMMYs solidified the year 1989 had by honoring Swift and her collaborators with Album Of The Year. This was Swift’s second time to win the honor and she became the first female to have ever received the honor twice! She is also the first artist this decade to receive two GRAMMYs for album of the year.WATCH TAYLOR SWIFT ACCEPT ALBUM OF THE YEAR
