Taylor Swift’s New Album Just Hit a Giant Milestone
Taylor Swift has once again topped the charts.
The singer's new album, Reputation, which came out on Friday, has already sold over 1 million copies, according to initial data from Nielsen Music published in Billboard. The numbers make it the highest selling album of 2017, topping Ed Sheeran's ÷, which had sold 919,000 copies by November 9, Billboard reports.
Billboard had previously reported that 700, 000 copies of the album on the first day of its release. Another music industry firm, Buzz Angle Music, reported that 717,000 albums were sold that day.
Three of Swift's other albums, 1989, which was released in 2014, Red, which was released in 2012, and Speak Now, which was released in 2010, also sold over a million copies, according to Billboard. Billboard notes that the last singer with an album that sold over a million copies was Adele's, in December of 2015.
