  • actually as of current charting week Fearless has sold 3.75 million copies and this coming chart week it'll come close to 3.8 million which is right in the eligibility area to be certified 4x platinum which is was 9/11 though It doesn't show in the RIAA searchable database as of yet

    • Taylor's website said Fearless was certified 3xp and it's not in the RIAA databse so I'll believe it when I see it.

        No offence, but why does everyone talk about "eligibility" for certifications. Soundscan sales do not determine "eligibility" for RIAA certifications. They are TOTALLY separate entities. RIAA tracks TOTAL shipments of any kind while Soundscan only tracks point of sale transactions at 14,000 locations in the US. Soundscan doesn't track all music sales nor club sales.

        This album has definitely shipped 4 million + so it's eligible for RIAA 4x platinum certification, whether the Soundscan numbers were 3.75 million or 2.2 million (hypothetical number)... Soundscan and RIAA are NOT related and neither's numbers have anything to do with the other.
        I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                We all know this!!

                SoundScan is a good *guide* to an RIAA certification.

                  • Of course it is. I didn't want to create a second thread. The Taylor Swift Completed Chart History is just a thread with TS's worldwide chart histories.

                    It's just a kind of summarize of all the weekly pieces of information we get. Nothing more

                      SoundScan is a good *guide* to an RIAA certification.
                      It's not even a "good guide" because shipments of an album have nothing to do with sales at places tracked by Soundscan and reported by Billboard. And differentiating between the two makes it better for people to stop linking them. Ex: Kingdom Come by Jay Z was certified 2x platinum for shipments of 2 million +, but Soundscan has "point of sale" numbers of around 1.4 million. According to the "good guide" most of you follow, this album is not "eligible" for 2x platinum because it didn't sell 1.8 or, even, 1.7 million copies. But its double platinum not because of what Soundscan reports, but because of what RIAA reports.

                      Furthermore, Soundscan, AGAIN, doesn't track all sales for all albums. It still misses a pretty good chunk of the total sales of an album. So, in theory, an album could be double platinum and soundscan reports sales of 1.7 million - yet the album, in theory, could have pushed another 3 or 400,000 copies through vendors not associated with Soundscan.

                      Now back to the point, I am glad that Taylor Swift has scored two 4x platinum albums and I believe in my heart both go 5x platinum. I really hope that she benefits more than anybody from the VMAs cause she 1) already has done better than all of them when talking US album and single sales and 2) she didn't deserve what Kanye did and I hope it results in a drop in his next album's sales and a rise in her current album sales.

                        No, you should post here. What's the difference? It's the same thing.

                                        Again, it's not in advance of anything. RIAA (certifications) and Soundscan (point of sale; not monitoring ALL sales). It's shipped more than 4 million and probably did so awhile ago. There are many places that Soundscan doesn't track in sales. Soundscan is NOT everything. I trust RIAA!!!

                                        Go 4 million... next goal is 5 MILLION!!!
                                        I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                            This week, West debuts at No. 30 on the Rhythmic airplay chart (viewable at billboard.biz) as a featured act on Drake's star-studded "Forever." Lil Wayne and Eminem also guest on the track, which previews the LeBron James basketball documentary film, "More Than a Game," due in theaters Oct. 2.

                                            West's appearance on the chart isn't surprising - "Forever" is his 30th entry - but the bow at No. 40 is more out of the ordinary.

                                            At the Rhythmic chart's anchor spot, Taylor Swift crosses over with "You Belong With Me." The song topped Country Songs for two weeks and has reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, Pop Songs, Adult Contemporary and Adult Top 40.

                                            How rare is it for a core country act to cross a hit from its home genre to rhythmic radio? Since the Rhythmic chart's October 1992 inception, only two other country acts have scooted onto the survey, and both did so in 1998."
                                            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...

                                                  She is certainly getting enough exposure to find out what the current sales limit is...3.4 million video streams at one site on one day...everyone in the world is going to know about her.
