Taylor Swift's new album "folklore" debuts at #1 with 844K&1.013 million in sales

Recommended Posts

Update:

It seems that republic records inflated their numbers for WW first week sales! :ricackle: According to Mediatraffic, Folklore has sold 1.013 million units, not 1.3 million units. The album sold 169k copies outside of the US, which are...okay numbers, for Taylor, but r pretty good judging the circumstances internationally.

Taylor Swift's new album folklore blasted to #1 with 844K in sales, Hits Daily Double reports. The album racked up 175m streams on Spotify alone.

Queen of sales omg :omggg:

 
 

Earlier:

Republic Records announces Taylor Swift's new album folklore sold more than 1.3 million units worldwide in its first day, eclipsing earlier predictions (down below).

It sets Spotify's global record for first day album streams by a female artist with 80.6 million, is the most streamed pop album on Apple Music within 24 hours with 35.47 million streams and sets the US and worldwide Amazon Music Indie/Alternative streaming record. 

Incredible!

Earlier:

Predictions have come in for Taylor Swifts new critically acclaimed record "Folklore"!

The album is now being predicted to sell 450k-650k units; confirmed by Hits Daily Double. The album officially is the #1 most streamed female album within 24 hours (it’s debut)!

 

Earlier:

Now that Taylor has pulled a Beyonce card, and surprised everyone's wigs that didn't yet book their appointment to Saturn, What do you think under these circumstances will the album sell in its first week? 

A few weeks ago, i and some other people were talking about where Taylors career would go to when she releases #TS8 and whether it will be a success or not. Now that she has suprised releasing a new album, under all of this consequences like:

  • Qurantine and COVID-19- Many people (especially in the US) are fearing of going outside amidst the rising amount of cases of corona every day, so less people would be going to the stores to buy the new album
  • Taylor swift is 30 years old- Not meant to be sexist remark, but when a woman in the industry reaches her 30+ era, the industry becomes very discriminating and sexist towards such women. For example- Britney released BJ when she was 32 years, Gaga released Joanne when she was 30 years old, Katy perry released witness when she was 33, and all of these albums underperformed. So, would there be a decrease in sales?
  • Protest- In the US or WW, people are busy protesting against the problems of their country and fighting, such as #BLM . So since many people would be protesting, would they care if TS dropped a new album or not?
  • Billboard has stopped considering bundles

So with all of these problems, how much do you think at most will Taylor swift be able to sell in her first week?

I personally think that the album will obviously debut at No.1 in the billboard charts, but i think Folklore will sell around 250k-350k in its first week. In the UK, i think she will sell 43k over there and probably debut at No.1 or No.2. Internationally, i predict that the album will shift around 540k-670k

What do you think? Let me know :sendinglove:

I’m Thinking Number 2, With 250,000 Sold First Week.  I’m Thinking 8 Weeks In Top 10, 25 Weeks On Chart.  I Just Have A Feeling This Album Is Gonna Underperform.

250k is also a pretty safe estimation since you know...she is Taylor swift. I also have that feeling, because even tho she has smart buisness tactics and a very loyal fanbase, i dont think thats going to be her saving grace. Not to mention the consequences

Initially, I was thinking around 500k, but now that seems kind of generous, tbh. 350 - 400k sounds reasonable to me. :heresthetea:

First of all, Beyoncé dropped her self titled album with no announcement. So I don’t see this as “pulling a beyoncé”. It’s similar but yeah...

Anyway, Im going to go with...325k to 350k with streaming.

#1 for sure. It's going to put her above Gaga for most #1s this decade, unfortunately.

I think at least 500K. Everyone seems so hyped + she's selling 8 versions of vinyls + 8 versions of CDs + cassette. Physical sales is gonna help.

The lead single's MV is also ready to come out tonight.

Definitely strong numbers.

I think is too early for another album :tbh:.

Taylor sis.. you are following Katy releasing path and that is not a good thing. 

Just because you last work flop, it doesn't meant you should hurry to release something new!! :jl::jl:

 

You need give time for people to miss you.

Bundles still count if they are available for purchase separately, and they are also available at a lower rate individually. Considering this is Taylor Swift we are talking about, and also the fact that all sales include the "purchase" of the digital standard edition. This should break 1 mil first week easy. She has done it multiple times. She is basically the only artist left that can still do this. I said what I said. PERIODT. :staysalty:

The Billboard bundle rule doesn't go into effect until this fall, so she can still crush it with some bundles. I know some Swifties will buy all 8 (EIGHT!) variants of the album. Only availalbe for a week at that, which will surely pressure people to move fast and purchase. This is such a smart move on Taylor's part. She knows how to engage her fans and get them to drop those coins even if you're only given a day's notice. I expect a big debut from her. Maybe not 'Lover' levels, but a decent debut week on BB200.

Yeah let's not underestimate Taylor Swift people! Lover wasn't that great but still was the top selling album of laster year in album sales. People are excited for this and during a time when people aren't releasing music and movies aren't coming out, we're going to eat this up!

Uhhhh, the album was the fifth-best selling album of 2019...not that I’m saying that’s bad but it wasn’t the best selling album of 2019
