        New album has already sold 50,000 pre-orders in the US in the first hour.

        For comparison, 1989 had 200,000 in the first 10 weeks, Reputation had 400,000 in the first 11 weeks, Fearless (Taylor's Version) had 60,000 in the first 8 weeks, and Red (Taylor's Version) had 72,000 in the first 20 weeks. The number for Midnights is gonna slow down dramatically after this week, but the start is already incredible.

            Will this sell 1M units or over on its debut week? since this is a new album and not a "Taylor's version"

            Red (TV) sold some 600 k on debut week I think

              I hope it does, but it will be difficult... it's been a while since she sold over a million copies in the first week, but her streaming profile definitely increased a lot and with a few bundles + tons of promo, she could definitely do it. It's basically her first "proper" release since Lover...

                Well Lover did 867k first week combined three years ago
                Folklore 846k
                Evermore 329k
                ...but if she hypes it up it might be possible. Honestly, anything over 500k combined and I'm happy. If she does promo/strategies well, over 750k is very possible

                  I think is not easy at all, but 700k is very possible and would be amazing for her.

                    700,000 is guaranteed tbh. the real challenge is outdebuting folklore and Lover.

                      She can't do bundles anymore. With them 1M would have been very possible.

                        I don't mean tour bundles like artists did back in the days; more like bundles with shirts, postcards etc. so the fandom will buy several copies of the album instead of just one copy.

                          Main 'problem', I guess, is the fact the album has only 13 tracks, so streaming numbers won't be as huge as for 16-track long Folklore, 26-track long Fearless (TV) and, especially, 30-track long Red (TV).

                            Merch bundles are not counted anymore either

                              Midnights amassed ~100,000 Physical pre-Orders from her USA wrb store.

                              ​​​​​​for comparison, Red TV only had 70,000 pre-orders from her USA web store after five months.

                                They haven't counted for two years.. which is why artists are doing so many different versions these days. Why do you think Taylor had so many versions of Folklore and all those different vinyl and signed copies!?

                                  think its possible depending on promo and singles chosen the last time Taylor debuted with 1 million copies sold first week was Reputation in 2017 this would be her 5th studio album to do so and 9th to open with more than 500,000 dating back to Fearless in 2008

                                    It's possible but it's much tougher to get to a million units sold in the first week in the US(and that's nothing to say about pure sales). With Reputation, she withheld the album off streaming services until December that year and digital purchases were briefly limited to iTunes and it was an album-only download as well. That won't be happening this time around.

                                      The #1 in the UK is gonna be interesting since Artic Monkeys is releasing a new album the same week.

                                          Sorry, guess I wasn't clear... all these different versions are what I meant when talking about bundles. Like several versions, then adding CDs including shirts, CDs including cassettes etc. so people buy more versions of the album = more sales.

                                            Billboard will count all the versions bought by each person or just 1?

                                              Nothing bundled with a tshirt counts anymore. which is why no one does that these days. 10 different CD versions will still count yes.
