Taylor Swift sells music and non music.
On Tuesday night, iTunes Canada “accidentally” released an eight-second clip of static noise from Taylor Swift’s “1989” appropriately titled “Track 3.” Fans immediately saw the song was available for purchased it in droves.
It rose to number one on iTunes and it literally was nothing (they removed it since).
PopJustice makes a valid point – this illustrates her album’s ready to sky rocket to the top, and the only thing that’s stopping it is its tentative release date.
“The success of ‘Track 3′, rather than proving that Taylor Swift fans will simply buy any old rubbish, is actually more likely to show that people liked ‘Shake It Off’, ‘Out Of The Woods’, that one off the cat advert and ‘Welcome To New York’ so much that they have complete faith in the quality of everything from this album, and will confidently download a song without listening to the music first.”
I’m kind of sad I missed the boat. I’d pay 99 cents to hear Taylor Swift not sing. That came out wrong.
