    Swift's 12 million-selling digital hits, and their sales tallies as of this week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, are "Love Story" (4,904,000), "You Belong With Me" (3,624,000), "Our Song" (2,754,000), "Teardrops Of My Guitar" (2,569,000), "Mine" (1,734,000), "White Horse" (1,584,000), "Today Was A Fairytale" (1,354,000), "Picture To Burn" (1,327,000), "Tim McGraw" (1,312,000), "Should've Said No" (1,191,000), "Fifteen" (1,119,000) and "Back To December" (1,027,000).
    24.5m singles sold with just those twelwe million sellers, which clarifies that other hits such as breathe, fearless, speak now, hey stephen has sold a lot to make up the other 8. something million.
    If you count all of those numbers it will come down to 24,499 mil. She has others hits so i could be 30mil by now
    billboard confirmed in january she has sold 34.8m digital songs. and she is the highest seller back in january. since than rihanna may have overtaken her.
    ...as a songwriter, Taylor's album tracks and digital single download tracks together are selling over 70 million per year in the US...about 300 million tracks total with album tracks about 88 % of the total...by far the most by any artist in the US since Taylor's debut song release.

    Billboard says Dr. Luke is ranked higher on the year-end songwriting charts than Taylor, but is the financial return from "airplay" more than the songwriter's fee per song received from track sales?

    For example, "Love Story" has over 11 million track sales in the US [album + digital] and huge US airplay over the past 2 1/2 years. Right up there with....well, maybe it's # 1 in that time period?
    are you being sarcastic? the 4.9m total for love story is all versions combined. and 70m per year? u mean 7m~ per year.

      dear this IS not completely right, you missed the point HOT DIGITAL SONGS tracks ALL DIGITAL VERSIONS of a given song (digital single, EP remixes, album track, collection's song etc) appearing on digital outlets. Hot Digital Tracks as chart tracks songs individually, so the total sum of sold singles IS ALWAYS AT LEAST SAME OR HIGHER ON HOT DIGITAL SONGS (adding methods).
      4,91M units of "Love Story" track all the versions of the song! it's IMPOSSIBLE to sell 70M songs digitally in the US, her album-tracks catalogue sell very well but 300M units IS totally a huge nonsense No offense of course

        no, just adding hard copy tracks to digital tracks. Total tracks from album sales are much more important than digital downloads, but the media likes to talk about those digital sales
        Red took 5 weeks to hit 2m in US sales. Speak Now took 6. Fearless took 7. Taylor Swift took 61. 1989 hit 2m in 3 weeks...

        • Billboard:

          6 Taylor Swift $20,730,431

          The Taylor Swift juggernaut kicked into high gear again with the October release of third album "Speak Now," which topped sales of 1 million units in its first week, the biggest debut ever for a studio album by a country artist. Swift was named Nielsen SoundScan's top-selling artist of 2010 based on her total album sales of 4.4 million. Those sales netted her about $7.4 million in royalties, not to mention significant publishing income. The 21-year-old singer/songwriter's career sales now exceed 19 million albums and 33 million song downloads, making her the top-selling digital artist in history. Also a top concert draw, Swift racked up U.S. tour grosses of $30.8 million, netting her $10.4 million. She will spend most of 2011 on tour in support of "Speak Now," kicking off a 90-city trek on Feb. 9 in Singapore that will take her to 19 countries.

              up to No. 6 now, and she might even pass Britney tomorrow did NOT expect it to get this high!

              I won't hold my breath, but maybe, just MAYBE this will outpeak "Mine" on Hot 100 Airplay.
              Oh my gosh! She could surpass Britney tomorrow! I'm so happy. It might become her second top 5 from SN in Mediabase! I love her radio airplay. Her digital download numbers, eh, could be better. For this era anyway. 100m AI is possible. Hopefully it will! YES! PLEASE!

                She did it. She surpassed Britney Spears you guys! She still has a LONG way to be number four though. Hopefully WMN will fall really fast, like it's doing now.

                  • wow, very impressive...but on BDS Nielsen airplay it will not be Top 5, country songs usually peak lower than at Mediabase. Anyway, its airplay success is obvious especially with the fact Country's feedback is not impressive, it's doing so well on POP

                        this made my day!!! [/i]
                        Imo Speak Now should be the next single, not sparks fly
                        IMO Sparks Fly screams SPRING single! also Speak now :( OMG no many good songs !!

                        • i don't know why, but Speak Now is one of the weaker tracks off the album for me. that and Innocent.

                          well to each his own.

                              still No. 5 now that it's matched "Mine"s peak position on Mediabase, hopefully it can match "Mine" at No. 7 on Hot 100 Airplay!

                              but it's definitely a pity that all this airplay, especially from POP radio, isn't helping downloads more. :-?

                                    • :evil: I'm so mad that she was not only not nominated for a grammy (just wait till next year ) but she won't even perform. :( She could've had her redemption this year. Seriously, she has improved a lot! At least I just saw her old Speak Now commercial while watching the Grammy's. Also BTD is now at #38.

                                                good, but i don't believe 800k units were sold worldwide, maybe shipment? does not matter at all!
                                                hopefully she wil remain inside Top 10 on Billboard this week where most release unexpectedly enjoyed a nice boost

                                                  +1 I hope she doesn't fall out of the top 10 yet!
