Country star Taylor Swift has earned two milestones in the 2014 Guinness Book of World Records. Justin Bieber and One Direction also landed in the record book.

Swift set one record with her song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" which has been named the fastest-selling digital single of all time after it hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart in August of last year after only 50 minutes of its release.

The country star also holds the record as the first female solo artist to earn two million-selling weeks on the U.S. album charts with "Speak Now", which sold 1.047 million copies in its first week of release in 2010 and her 2012 album "Red" sold 1.2 million.

British boyband One Direction set the record for highest debut by a U.K. Band on U.S. singles chart for their song "Live While We're Young" which debuted at No. 3 on chart in October of last year.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber set the record as the first solo artist to have three No. 1 albums in both the United States and the U.K. while under the age of 18.
