The Numbers Are In: Taylor Swift’s “1989” Debuts With Big Numbers

It’s her fourth No. 1 album and her third to sell a million units in its opening week – making her the first HBIC to do so.

She was ~this close~ to beating out Britney Spears’ 14-year-old record for biggest opening week by a female artist with “Oops!… I Did It Again” at 1.3 million, but missed it by just a few thousand.

Regardless, it’s still an incredible feat – it’s the biggest release of 2014 and is just the 19th album to sell a million copies in a week since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.

Congrats, Taylor! The album is bomb and I’m still playing it on repeat. I’m still playing it on repeat.
