Less than a week after Taylor Swift released Reputation, it's already the top-selling album of the year. Now, the numbers are getting even more wild: As Billboard notes, initial sales reports say that Reputation has sold 1.05 million copies in the U.S. in just its first four days of release.
Swift, 27, recording on Nashville-based independent label Big Machine Records, now has four albums that have sold more than one million copies in their first week - "1989", "Red", and "Speak Now". She's the only artists ever to have four million-selling weeks since Nielsen Music started tracking music sales electronically in 1991, according to Billboard.
Taylor and some of her band headed straight to the Reputation display but she was quickly noticed by tons of fans!
Taylor Swift, like Adele in 2015, managed these lava-hot numbers with old-fashioned CD sales and digital downloads. Adele also initially kept "25" from streaming services. Reputation could blast past 100,000 first-week sales in the United Kingdom, good enough for gold certification (platinum is recognised at 300,000 units).
Ed Sheeran wants to make it known that Taylor Swift was definitely, 100% percent, forsure forsure, absolutely not talking about him on her Reputation track "Dress".
Swift this week announced the first US dates of what is expected to be a world tour to promote the album.
