Normally I try to keep my blog to things I have written, but Taylor Swift is an exception. Here’s to hoping (and in the back of my mind, knowing) that she will break the record for 3 consecutive albums debuting at 1 million copies sold in the first week. If you haven’t heard it yet, you need to give it a listen (and seriously realign your priorities)!
Taylor Swift’s latest album, released Monday, is on track to hit 1 million in sales during its first week, according to Billboard. That would make 1989 the first album in 2014 to reach that watermark, and it would make the 24-year-old the only singer ever to have three albums achieve the one-million-in-one-week feat.
Taylor’s last million-selling debut week was Red, which was released in 2012 and sold 1.21 million copies. (Red was also the last million-selling debut week, period.) Before that, the singer had released Speak Now in 2010, which promptly sold 1.05 million copies.
