Unbelievable... I am more than happy for her. You can say what you want about her, her persona, her songs etc (I love her personally) but I guess four albums in a row selling 1 million first week... Gosh!!! Great
Many miles many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

Not sure if the reports given include all sources of sales though...the # might be higher, but yes if that’s the # including iTunes, preorders, magazines, the UPS deal, physical copies and all then it will be tight..

Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Sold 1.05M Copies in First Four Days in US, Now 2017's Top Selling Album

Taylor Swift’s Reputation album sold 1.05 million copies in the U.S. over its first four days of release, according to initial sales reports to Nielsen Music. It’s the first album to sell a million copies in a tracking week in nearly two years, since Adele’s 25 sold 1.16 million copies in the frame ending Dec. 25, 2015 (the album’s fifth week on sale).

Reputation was released on Friday, Nov. 10, through Big Machine Records. It is Swift’s sixth studio album.

Reputation is now Swift’s fourth album to log a million-selling week. It follows her last three studio efforts, which all saw million-selling opening frames: 1989 (1.29 million in 2014), Red (1.21 million, 2012) and Speak Now (1.05 million, 2010). Swift is now the only act to have four million-selling weeks, since Nielsen Music began electronically tracking music sales in 1991. (Adele has tallied three million-selling weeks, but all with the same album: 25.)

PREACH!

She's probably the next Artist of The Decade by Billboard, right ?

They lowered the prediction. Friday they were pointing to 1.5m, with possibility to grow, but seems it's not happening. So she might even not reach OIDIA 1st week sales!

Well it would be nice if she can top 1989's first week sales but if it doesn't its ok because she already crossed the 1 million mark, something many people doubted she could do for a 4th time in a row :P

I'm so glad for Taylor. Seeing a female be this successful is amazing specially when most of the charts are filled with urban music and not many females as a whole.
I am bit worried about the singles though, I hope she notches more top 3 hits !

^ Exactly, the figures aren't really comparable.

Plus it's been three years - so even if these were figures for the same amount of days I wouldn't call it a "huge" decline.

Although yes technically that would be right, that’s getting too specific into what a “record” from a “certain” person is imo :lol:
