    Did Taylor beat Garth (eh) Brooks?
    We need the Billboard chart for that - Speak Now is short by 40k so it's a bit of a long shot. If Taylor beats Norah Jones for 2nd best female debut, that would be significant.


    09 1998 1,085,373 1 Garth Brooks - Double Live

    10 2000 1,054,511 1 Limp Bizkit - Chocolate Starfish

    11 2004 1,022,149 1 Norah Jones - Feels Like Home

    12. 2008 1,005,545 1 LIL WAYNE - CARTER III
    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...

        Officially my new favourite number. Congrats to Taylor on this momentous occasion. The only sad thing (for the music industry, that is) that this may be the last time this feat is accomplished.

            How can you say that? how do you know that there won't be a digital album revolution where people all buy digital albums like its the late 90's. It could happen just saying

              Taylor Swift Sells Over 1 Million in Record Billboard 200 Debut

              Taylor Swift's "Speak Now" album spoke loud and clear last week, as it will debut at No. 1 on this week's Billboard 200 chart with a whopping 1,047,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the largest sales week for an album since 50 Cent's "The Massacre" bowed at No. 1 with 1,141,000 in March of 2005.

              Since SoundScan began tracking music sales in 1991, there have only been 16 instances where an album sold at least a million copies in a week. The last time we had a million-plus frame was when Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter III" launched at No. 1 with 1,006,000 in June of 2008. The SoundScan-era record week is still held by NSYNC's "No Strings Attached," when it debuted at No. 1 with 2,416,000 in 2000.

              Nielsen SoundScan, which fuels Billboard's music sales charts, tracks point-of-purchase sales of recorded music product, aggregating data from more than 20,000 retailers in the U.S. (including digital download services like iTunes and Amazon MP3), which represents more than 95% of retail music product sales in the U.S.

              A day after its Oct. 25 release, industry pundits were projecting that "Speak Now" would sell between 800,000 and 900,000 by the end of SoundScan's tracking week on Sunday, Oct. 31. Those predictions got even sunnier over the weekend, and by yesterday (1), it seemed a sure bet that the 1 million mark would be met.

              "Speak Now" marks Swift's second Billboard 200 No. 1 after her last set, "Fearless" started with 592,000 in November of 2008. It spent 11 non-consecutive weeks at the summit.

              A few more Swift milestones to note: "Speak Now" has the second-largest sales week of any country album since 1991. Only Garth Brooks' 1998 effort "Double Live" moved more, when it started with 1,085,000. Thus, Swift also achieves the biggest sales week of any female country act since 1991. Previously, the high-water mark was set by fellow crossover diva Shania Twain when her "Up!" started with 874,000 at No. 1 in 2002.

              And, "Speak" owns the biggest week for any album by a woman -- regardless of genre -- since 2000, when Britney Spears' "Oops! I Did It Again" danced into the No. 1 spot with 1,319,000. In total, just four albums by women have notched million-plus weeks. Aside from Swift and Spears, Whitney Houston's "The Bodyguard" soundtrack moved 1,061,000 over the busy Christmas week of 1992 and Norah Jones' "Feels Like Home" debuted at No. 1 with 1,022,000 in 2004.

                            Well to beat Kesha is a feat as that has had all year to sell (that's for those cunts that said Kesha snatched Taylor's wig when she took No. 1 on the iTunes chart) but it's acceptable for BEP as their has been selling since way before this year started.
                            I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                • Canada
                                  The 20-year-old's third studio effort, "Speak Now," blasted to No. 1, selling a whopping 62,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

                                  It easily surpassed the first week sales of her mega-popular second disc "Fearless," which rang up 27,000 in November 2008.

                                  Eminem still holds the Canadian high-water mark this year with "Recovery," which sold 85,000 when it premiered in June.

                                      WO!!! It looks like she's shaping up to be an international superstar soon. She's already got footing in several countries. If she does a lot of intense promotion in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and other places she can really increase her international v. domestic ratio! After all, she already has the US on lock.

                                      And for the people that like to cite Shania Twain as being international v. Taylor Swift what you do NOT look at is the fact that Shania had 2 hit albums before Come On Over became an international success and her 2nd album performed pretty similar to Taylor's second internationally. It wasn't until Come On Over that she really took off. Taylor can really do the same thing with her album especially with all of these top 10 and number 1 debuts outside of the US. It's at a perfect time already in which she'll benefit around the world from high sales during the last quarter of this year and then she just needs intense promotion, great singles, appearances, radio visits, etc. around the world and she can push 'Speak Now' to crazy new heights!

                                            Actually, it's more like sales of 775,000 in the US (62,000/80,000 - platinum)!!! The bottom line is this girl is crushing!

                                                Yes it is... Taylor isn't as big here as she is in the US.
