Some very positive sales news this week as TAYLOR SWIFT has sold 1.287 million copies of her new album, "1989."
USA TODAY quotes data from NIELSEN SOUNDSCAN, and writes "the album becomes the first released this year to sell a million copies, and the year's second-highest seller overall, behind the 'Frozen' soundtrack. It also means SWIFT sold more than two copies of "1989" every second last week."
SWIFT is a sales machine, and is the first artist ever to have three albums sell a million copies in a week. "Speak Now" sold 1.047 million in 2010. "Red" debuted with 1.21 million sales in 2012, making it the last album to sell over a million in a week.
