Taylor Swift has done what no other artist was able to do in 2 years; sell a million records in her first week of release.

Almost 300,000 came off digital sales alone.  "Speak Now" sold 1 million and 70 thousand sold. 

The last artist to sell 1 million in the first week?  Lil Wayne

No one is going to say she got the "Kanye" bump are they?

Congrats to Taylor.  Keep em talking Swift one.-Dr.FB

  1. YAAAWN!!! WHY ARE PEOPLE NOT TELLING THE TRUTH? IM SURPRISED THAT EVERYONE AND THEIR MAMA ARE PRAISING THIS NO TALENT TALK SINGING BIATCH BUT NOT EXPLAINING THE REAL REASON FOR THE SALES. HER ALBUM IS SELLING FOR $3.99 SINCE PRE-ORDERS ON AMAZON.COM. THAT’S WHAT DROVE THE SALES UP. PEOPLE WHO WOULD NORMALLY BUY 3-4 TRACKS OFF ITUNES WILL SAY WTF… THE INDIVIDUAL TRACKS COST THE SAME AS THE ALBUM AND BUY THE ALBUM INSTEAD. THAT’S IT IN A NUTSHELL. ADD AN ASTERISK BESIDE THAT STAT. SMFH.

    SINCE WE’RE TALKING STATS, WHITNEY HOUSTON WAS THE FIRST FEMALE AND FIRST BLACK FEMALE TO HIT OVER A MILLION REGULAR PRICED ALBUMS IN A WEEK. BODYGUARD DIDNT SELL A MILLION FIRST WEEK OUT (IT SOLD 800K ) BUT DID SELL OVER A MIL THE 2ND WEEK!! ANOTHER RECORD. IT SOLD 1,061.000 AND THIS WAS SOME 17-18 YRS AGO. TAYLOR SWIFT, SIT DOWN. LOL.
