        • Taylor Swift’s 'Speak Now' Set Market Share Record

          November 09, 2010

          By Glenn Peoples

          http://www.billboard.biz/bbbiz/content_ ... 0943b7f4fe

          In its first week of release, Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” accounted for nearly one in five album purchases. In selling 1,047,000 units during a week with 5.8 million album sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan, “Speak Now” represented 18% of all albums sold last week, the highest first-week market share in SoundScan history.

          Ten other albums have debuted with higher sales. The all-time leader in one-week sales is ‘N Sync’s “No Strings Attached,” which was released in March 2000 – the heyday of the CD – and sold 2.4 million units in its first week of release. That was good for a 15.3% share of that week’s total album sales – nearly three percentage points less than “Speak Now.”

          The second-best opening week was ‘N Sync’s August 2001 album “Celebrity.” It debuted with 1.89 million units in a week with 14.6 million units sold – a 12.8% share of album sales. Eminem’s “Marshall Mathers LP” ranks as the third-best opening week with sales of 1.76 million. It had an 11.6% market share in its first week.





          Some strong market shares have been captured by albums released in 2010. Eminem’s “Recovery,” released in June, debuted with a market share of 12.2% on first-week sales of 741,000. Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” was released in late January, traditionally a slow time for new releases, and achieved a market share of 7.4% on sales of 481,000. Drake’s “Thank Me Later,” released in June, had a market share of 7.3% on first-week sales of 447,000.

          There are a few considerations when comparing today’s statistics to those over the last decade. The market has changed in the nine or ten years since albums were posting record first-week sales figures. The CD was completely dominant while singles (CD and vinyl) were well under 10% of total unit sales. In effect, people tended to buy the album because there was no other viable option. Since ‘N Sync posted those big first-week numbers, consumers have increasingly purchased individual track downloads instead of entire albums. Today, a rare artist may still be able to command a million albums in a debut week, but there are far fewer albums being sold. As a result, that album-oriented artist in today’s single-oriented market will have a better market share ratio than would an artist before the rise of digital downloads.

          Another consideration is that some albums with big one-week sales were released during weeks with holiday-driven, high sales volume. As a result, they have a relatively low share of total sales even though they put up big numbers. The Beatles’ “Anthology 1,” for example, sold 855,000 units in its first week of release (the week ending November 26, 2000) but ended up with a 4.5% share. Backstreet Boys’ “Black & Blue” was released on November 21, 2000 and sold 1.59 million units in its debut week – good for just a 6.8% share of all album 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...

            the sales are a bit lower than initially projected, but 70% is still a pretty average 2nd week drop. this brings total sales to just under 1.4 million in 2 weeks

              It will be interesting to see her third week.
              I wait at least +200k, and perhaps +250k = +1,6 million in 3 weeks.

                This really tightens up the race for top artist sales for the Billboard year...your estimates for Gift vs Speak Now next week would give SuBo a very narrow victory....Taylor's four albums need to find some legs this week!

                  Agreed! She must not lose to Susan! Hopefully either:

                  1. The Gift underpeforms.
                  2. Speak Now, Fearless, Taylor Swift, and The Holiday Collection miraculously sell more than 310,000+ copies next week to secure a narrow victory.

                      • I think nobody posted it, but last friday "Speak Now" debuted in the italian album chart too at #18
                        Both her debut and Fearless didn't chart at all in Italy!
                        And there's people in other threads that call her a local artist

                            Dreadful. If it hadn't been for that single release sales would be below 5 million again at a time of year when you are hoping albums sales are starting to ramp up.

                            • "Back to December" has been chosen as the second single. Hope it will bring her another Top3 position on Hot 100.

                                It's not again sure than SuBo will underperform in US !
                                But Taylor will sell much more than Susan, it's sure !

                                • Speak Now debuts at #6 on the Japanese daily charts. Sales figures aren't released yet but I suppose it's roughly about 5,000 copies?

                                    I am so thankful for these press releases. They show people that domination of an industry is not JUST a number, but a number compared to other numbers. Her 1,047,000 dwarfed Britney's 1.3 million!!! She's a beast right now!
                                    I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                      • from Billboard:

                                        For the first time in three years, the top three selling albums in the U.S. are all country efforts. Taylor Swift's "Speak Now" holds at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a second week (320,000; down 69% according to Nielsen SoundScan), Jason Aldean's "My Kinda Party" starts at No. 2 (193,000) and Sugarland's former No. 1 "The Incredible Machine" slips one rung to No. 3 (60,000; down 32%).

                                        Country albums last monopolized the top three rungs on the chart dated Nov. 10, 2007, when Carrie Underwood's "Carnival Ride" debuted at No. 1 (527,000), Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' "Raising Sand" started at No. 2 (112,000) and Gary Allan's "Living Hard" bowed at No. 3 (69,000).

                                        Last week, Swift's "Speak Now" made a historic 1,047,000 bow, just the 16th time since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991 where an album sold at least 1 million copies in a week. As history has proven, it was all but a given that "Speak Now" would take a steep drop in sales this week. The set's 69% decline in on par with the sophomore-week dive of our last million-plusser: Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter III." It went from 1,006,000 in its premiere to 309,000 in its second stanza.

                                              Week 1: 62,000
                                              Week 2: 26,000
                                              Thanks so much for the info!

                                              So Speak Now, is now officially Platinum (80k units).
                                              No "officially" platinum means that the CRIA has awarded the album for shipments over 80,000, not that Soundscan has "recorded" sales of over 80,000. It is eligible though.
                                              I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                                  ...and ~ 250k in its 3rd week! Week 4 might drop, but I don't foresee anything else lower than 250k until January...I'm seeing over 3.3 million for the calendar year
                                                  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...

                                                    250k during the third week will be a great result if it's confirmed Friday by the weekend predictions of HDD ! After the disappointing 320k of this week, it will be an amazing news for her long-term sales !
