Taylor Swift’s surprise live album, Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions, has topped this week’s new music poll.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (Nov. 27) on Billboard, choosing the 30-year-old pop superstar’s latest album as their favorite new music release of the past week.

Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions brought in nearly 48% of the vote, beating out new music by Miley Cyrus (Plastic Hearts), Bad Bunny (El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo) and Jennifer Lopez (“In the Morning”), among others.

Last week, Swift treated fans to early Christmas gifts by releasing a Disney+ film documenting the making of her 2020 quarantine album, Folklore, along with a live version of the release, titled Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions.

In the film, Swift talks about the making of Folklore, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving an insight into how the lockdown album was pieced together.

Placing second on the tally with nearly 35% of the vote was Cyrus’ rock-fueled seventh studio album, Plastic Hearts. The 15-track set includes the previously-released singles “Midnight Sky,” “Prisoner” (with Dua Lipa) and “Edge of Midnight” (with Stevie Nicks).
