Chart Check: Taylor Swift Speeds Past 1 Million Mark With First Week Sales of ‘1989’ As ‘Shake It Off’ Returns To #1 On Hot 100

Published: Wednesday 5th Nov 2014 by Rashad

Industry forecasters predicted that country pop diva Taylor Swift‘s new album, ‘1989,’ would soar right to #1 with over a million sold its first week.  What they didn’t predict, however, is how far past the 1 million mark the record would scorch.

With official numbers finally tallied, reports have it the album shifted 1.287 million copies its first week and, in turn, etched the singer’s name in history books as the only artist to have three albums sell over 1 million copies in one week.

Billboard:

“…of the top selling albums on the Billboard 200 chart for the week, 1989 sold more than Nos. 2-107 combined.

Or, yet another way to view 1989’s massive bow: It debuts with more copies sold than the combined first-weeks of the last eight No. 1-debuting albums.  Note:  Swift’s 1989 was briefly on sale for 99 cents during its release week through the Microsoft’s Music Deals app, but those sales were not counted by SoundScan.”

As if that’s not reason enough to celebrate, the album’s lead single, ‘Shake It Off,’ has finally shaken Meghan Trainor‘s ‘All About That Bass’ from the top spot of the Hot 100.   This is in addition to the four other songs from ‘1989’ that made a debut in the Hot 100 this week.  The five entries put Taylor Swift in second place (behind Aretha Franklin) with most Hot 100 entries by a female ever.

With a #1 single and album simultaneously and five entries in the Hot 100, the question is now:  will that Taylor Swift reign ever let up?

    She just killed Lady Gaga’s career and Rihanbba, too.

    • TRUTH LIQUID November 5, 2014

      If you think Lady Gaga and her camp weren’t in on that 99¢ thing, then I have a burning bridge to sell your ass. That crap was plotted and planned months in advance; they all knew that s*** was happening.

      Gaga and Interscope ***conspired with*** Amazon to sell her wacky ass album for peanuts because she wanted to debut high to prove some point that wound up backfiring on her. Period. Don’t try to act like this was above her loony toon head. She knew.Furthermore, the album went on to drop 85% in the second week, the biggest drop ever for an album that “sold” over a million copies.

      Why did it drop? Because when the s*** stopped selling for quarters, the general public stopped being interested. Compare BTW to all the other albums that sold over a million in its first week, and you’ll see what a flop it was comparatively. Reason being, those other albums LEGITIMATELY sold a million and didn’t fake the funk like hers did.

      😆

      • BeyHive November 5, 2014

        ARTPOP- “the album of the millennium” according to Lady Gaga sold nearly the same amount as Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus worldwide.

        😀

      Rihanna’s fine. But Gags BEEN ova.

  2. tits mcgee November 5, 2014

    This girl is a marvel. Congrats to Taylor. Shake it off is my current guilty pleasure. Lol.

    “With official numbers finally tallied, reports have it the album shifted 1.287 million copies its first week and, in turn, etched the singer’s name in history books as the only artist to have three albums sell over 1 million copies in one week.”

    OMG!!!!! WHAT???? Who is buying these CDs? And this is with the $0.99 Gaga deal (which were not counted) and still, WHAT???

    How is she doing this?

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Oh no! The c-squats were bring that up, but it’s not even part of the sales? So she did MORE?

      • LB November 5, 2014

        Yep, way more….how is she doing this?

  4. TheElusiveLamb November 5, 2014

    I’m actually happy for her. With 99.9% of artists opening from 10k-90k and barely cracking 200k ww, it is amazing to see someone sell so many copies. I bought the album to support her cause, and it is very cute. Congratulations Taylor.

  5. tits mcgee November 5, 2014

    Taylor’s #1 fan was right. He said about 1.3mil 1st week.

    I heard on aunt wendy, that Taylor had listening parties at her 4 homes for big fan, and served them great treats like sushi and pizza.

    Taylor seems to appreciate her fans and cultivate their loyalty.

    Other music stars, should be taking notes..

  6. LB November 5, 2014

    Anyway Taylor’s music does absolutely nothing for me, in fact I think it’s a joke but I do support her stance on Spotify and many streaming services like Pandora who pay artists peanuts in royalties.

    Fact is streaming has killed even iTunes, not only aren’t albums selling, singles are struggling too. It’ll be interesting to see if other labels will follow suit and yank their music from Spotify in order to demand higher royalties.

    What I would suggest they do is only make singles available on the service but that is only my opinion.

    Funny thing I’m criticizing Spotify when I use it a lot lately LOL, some music isn’t worth buying (like Iggy’s) though so Spotify has its uses.

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Well that’s only to a FEW artist. If you’re can sell, then sure, pull it. But most of these flops should be thanking spotify and people even typing in their names. Plus it works well for inde artist. At the end, if people want to buy your music, they will. If not, they’re just not that into you.

      • LB November 5, 2014

        My main issue is they should be paying higher royalties

  7. Mimiriah Chanteuse November 5, 2014

    Monsters must be fuming lol. It was all downhill from ‘Born This Way’, Gaga is on her way out.

    RIP Lady Gaga xoxo

  8. LB November 5, 2014

    @tits mcgee

    That’s the thing about her though, that is actually her personality, it is not an act but still…

    • tits mcgee November 5, 2014

      @LB

      Yes, true it’s her real persona and not a gimmick, but the big thing other stars could learn from her is a bit of HUMILITY and REAL fan contact.

  9. BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

    damn come through tay congrats to her

  10. Mark111 November 5, 2014

    Taylor played her marketing cards right. Teens love her, tweens like her, lil kids loves her, parents likes her and knows she’s safe for their lil ones to listen to. Adults respect her and relive their youths with her music. So many artist at this age would had stripped already, but she hasn’t and would be dumb if she did. Haven’t seen an artist to keep it so classy since Whitney (image wise, don’t come at me).

    • BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

      brandy had that good marketing/image to until the 2000’s came

      • Mark111 November 5, 2014

        … Brandy… I think Brandy took TOO many breaks and too long of breaks between albums. Sure Aaliyah took a 5 year break between her 2nd and last album, but she had hits on soundtracks and a film. Brandy just didn’t cross over into adult hood, and her having a baby didn’t help, even tho she was 22 and GROWN. I just think in those breaks, Ak, Ashunti, Bey and so many other girls came in and pushed her aside, same with Mo. Also that late 90’s teen bobs such as Britney and the boybands took Brandy’s audience, because Brandy was the biggest teen star of the 90’s until Brit came along.

      • coolness November 5, 2014

        Yeah, Brandy if anything, was fashioned to be the teen version of Whitney. She doubled as a successful singer and actress all while projecting a very wholesome image like the former. Out of her 90s R&B teen star peers (Monica, Usher and Aaliyah), she was the most successful but failed to make a proper transition into the 21st century. Those scandals didn’t help her either.

      • Brian310 November 6, 2014

        @Mark that is what I always have said and Brandy fan base earlier on were mainstream fans and we know how fickle they can be once other girls hit the scene (brit, xtina) she lost those fans. Aaliyah built her fan base from the ground up doing radio shows and always performing at festival like events which is how she got a loyal fanbase.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

      yeah that’s true I agree

  11. LB November 5, 2014

    @Mark111

    The 90s was awesome though, best time in music IMO. So much variety around you would walk into a CD shop and not know what to buy.

    You walk in there hoping to buy one CD and walk out with four

    • tits mcgee November 5, 2014

      The truth! I miss going into a Sam Goody, the Wiz, or Tower Records, and coming out the store with an arm full of CD’s.

      Happy memories of my pre-teen to teen years in the 90’s

      • LB November 5, 2014

        Yassssss, there was no nonsense about stan wars then, it was so awesome looking forward to what any artist brought to the table.

        Award shows were awesome too because the competition was so stiff that if someone you like won, you’d be happy. Today it’s a popularity contest.

      • tits mcgee November 5, 2014

        @LB

        Hilarious! I remember tapes. They were so messy. By the time, started buying music they were on the way out. I was buying CD maxi-singles and CD’s.

        I still do have some casettes and VHS in my house tho.

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Y’all must’ve been some rich kids, cause I was lucky to afford the singles tape, lol. But remember when you could scan the album and hear previews of the tracks? Now I just pass the cd section up.

  12. BeyHive November 5, 2014

    Lady Gaga is a scam. This talentless fugly s**** needs to fade away. The female version of Kanye West- self-absorbed, petulant, irrelevant and nonsense.

    People have lost interest partly due to her psycho fans and Gaga’s narcissism. She couldn’t even sell out at Roseland which holds 2500 people. Fans will say it was sold out but tickets were available for all shows there [except for 1] up until the very day of the show. She is playing in the arenas just to give an illusion that her shows are “sold-out”. She’s now fallen for her own hype and releases plastic badly written songs she can blame those around her but really she wrote and recorded the songs no one held a gun to her head.

    As a result. ARTPOP is the worst album pop album ever recorded.

    Conclusion: No one wants Gaga anymore. People have lost interest partly due to her psycho fans and her empty art.

    RIP. 🙁

    • Sherry November 5, 2014

      The mention of Gagas name alone makes me puke.

  13. LB November 5, 2014

    But why are people coming for Gaga when we all remember “Beyonce has sold 1 million copies in a week”?? This is selling over 1 million copies in a week

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Oh I clocked that last year with the pest. It was 998K after 10 days. They tried to add WW numbers and count them with her US, but even that didn’t add to a million in the first week (or in the first 7 days).

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      And you know what the shade of it all? They were comparing Beyonce’s WW first week sales to Rihanna’s US first week sales. Shows how biased they are.

      • LB November 5, 2014

        LMAO their concern is Rihanna when Miley, Katy, Lorde, Gaga had albums released that year. For them, as long as they outdo Rihanna they are happy.

        Remember how they were hoping around like someone sprayed bug spray in a hive once Beyonce sold 1 copy more than Unapologetic (using a year old receipt btw)?

      • Mark111 November 5, 2014

        lol, they’re so sad. No one even reply to them anymore. Now they have to work a corner to be able to buy her re-release, lol. $45 for two new tracks! lol.

  14. Sherry November 5, 2014

    Taylor is my guilty pleasure. She makes awesome music from her heart and she does not try to be anyone but herself. Her latest album isnt my fav from her but it’s not bad either. Slay Tay!

  15. CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

    Trying to drag miley, katy and gaga when your fave hasn’t done any of their numbers first week after 7 albums. I’m done.

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      But even Tinashe first week’s bigger than Cole sore. 17k > 0

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        Cheryl went gold in her first week f**. This must’ve been your weakest “drag” ever.

      • Mark111 November 5, 2014

        Not in the United States of America c u n. lol #RitasLessor

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        Not more weak attempts. Cheryl snatched that number one record kiii. And sales are sales b**** lol. Kii @that weak 2009 drag.

      • Mark111 November 5, 2014

        Yea, but isn’t Gold on your island like 100k? Not impressed.

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        Not impressive for a country w a fifth of the population? It’s literally the same ratio. It’s literally the same. Your so stupid lmao.

  16. LB November 5, 2014

    When male pop stars were huge and exciting.

  17. Mark111 November 5, 2014

    Can someone explain to ME how does Chris Brown think that his album went Gold, but still hasn’t crossed 300K this week?

  18. LB November 5, 2014

    Anyway Rashad, when will my TGJ: Replay of “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” be ready??

  19. LB November 5, 2014

    @Mark111

    He is counting album equivalents, when your single sells enough copies, a certain amount of those sales are counted as album sales.

    So if we were using CD equivalents, then Roman Reloaded probably did cross the 1 million mark thanks to starships.

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

  21. Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

    Taylor Swift has been killing the game ever since her debut.
    She is America’s (LARGEST MARKET IN THE WORLD) sweetheart. She has the same appeal Shania Twain had in the 90s. Taylor (like Adele) sells ALBUMS & SINGLES. She writes & produces her OWN material. Also, sells out arenas & some stadiums on her very high grossing world tours. She is SLAYING!

    Taylor Swift: 2006 (5,000,000+)
    Fearless 2008 (8,000,000+)
    Speak Now 2010 (5,000,000+)
    Red 2012 (6,000,000+)
    1989 2014 (1,000,000+)

    Congrats To You Taylor. Also, being white don’t really matter. Cause, even WHITES flop these days!

  22. Molly November 5, 2014

    What does gaga have to do with this?

    Gaga>>>> Rihanna>>>Beyonce>>> Katy>>> Miley

    • Sherry November 5, 2014

      All of them >>>>> Ci-Error

  23. LB November 5, 2014

    Molly you’re reaching for heaven.

    Gaga is a ball room singer now, she cannot fill arenas no more, in what way is she better than Rihanna?

    • Molly November 5, 2014

      Gaga is more talented than Rih (Which makes her better) I feel like Gaga next era will be epic she’ll take her crown back.

      • LB November 5, 2014

        Gaga is not better than Rihanna. Until Gaga records a song like cold case love or love without tragedy/mother mary, Rihanna>>>>>

      • Molly November 5, 2014

        Lol ok.. rih does have a cute discography but if only she was a better performer.

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        They’re just as delusional as the navi that said that rihanna could outsing beyonce on Twitter yesterday. The b**** doesn’t even write her songs. Calling the hive delusional when you say sh!t like this? #selfdrag

      • LB November 5, 2014

        Has Cheryl found her second octave yet?

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        She found that number one record b****. How’s sweetflop doing sis?

      • Molly November 5, 2014

        @Cheryl lol you better clock teas.. I mean rih is cool but let’s not pretend like she’s that talented when she isn’t.

      • LB November 5, 2014

        Multiple artists have called Rihanna talented.

        Plus again, until your fav has a song like COLD CASE LOVE, LOVE WITHOUT TRAGEDY/MOTHER MARY or even LOST IN PARADISE, Rihanna>>>>>> your fav.

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        Molly they swear that rihanna writes all of these songs and has a big role in their development. Not them actually giving her all this praise for RECORDING a song that was handed down to her. I just can’t.

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Not ball room?! lmfao

  24. Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

    @LovelyBird , I agree the 1990s was the best decade in music. 1993 was & will always be my favorite years musically. The whole decade was VERY diverse. Rock, HipHop, Dance/Electronic, Pop, R&B & just about every genre (even JAZZ). DOMINATED the 1990s.

  25. Molly November 5, 2014

    Hi king Stephy!!

  26. LB November 5, 2014

    @Stephy,

    The 90s gave us The miseducation of Lauryn hill, the best time in music. We need another 90s in music.

    Rashad, stop playing, where is my Replay?

  27. Molly November 5, 2014

    Oh hey Cheryl baby!!!

    • TheElusiveLamb November 5, 2014

      LOL!

  28. LB November 5, 2014

    I’ll soon be starting a petition and a kickstarter to raise funds to find Cheryl’s second octave, those one octave sessions were painful

  29. NOLIES November 5, 2014

    YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT TAYLOR just OUTSOLD everyone like that? This b**** has less talent than damn near everyone and she turns around and outsells The Divorcing Whaleteuse, D.O.A., Analgetic, JHEFTY,Botox & War, Yodellious Soul, No Point of Staying on Key, Two Sacrafices, Flopara, New Flop, and more in ONE week. DAMN! Soon this c*** will outdo Bleakyonce and force B to continue wishing she was white. Luckily for the economy, Clorox will see a rise in sells.

  30. CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

    Trying to drag my fave when she has 7 songs in the top 100, 3 in the top 20, 2 in the top 3? Try again. And mark, your fave can’t go 1 inch outside of her plot 6 feet under.

    • Brian310 November 6, 2014

      Yet she still kills Cheryl in relevance

  31. LB November 5, 2014

    @Stephy

    So I listened to Solange Knowle’s “true” EP which she promoted on her laundromat tour with special spin cycle guest appearance and it’s pretty solid.

    She needs to write Beyonce’s next album, all of it.

    • TheElusiveLamb November 5, 2014

      Solange has a beautiful instrument and a great discography. Sol-Angels was my favorite album of 2006.

  32. LB November 5, 2014

    My fav tops charts all over the world, should I be impressed by those local chart positions? Come back to us when your fav finds her second octave

  36. King November 5, 2014

    Okay, I hate to be that person but something about this doesn’t sit well with me. I just can’t understand how someone can sell 1,000,000+ albums in one week three times in a row in a music market like this. Idk. Just my opinion.

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Loyal fanbase. Have you seen them on twitter?

      • King November 6, 2014

        Plenty of artists have loyal worldwide fanbases and can’t pull these numbers. Bey and Rih are the prime examples.

  37. Molly November 5, 2014

    No lie my girl Cheryl is clocking Rihs tea right now.

    • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

      It’s nothing against rih, it’s her annoying and hypocritical stans that come at the hive for the same bull$hit.

      • Molly November 5, 2014

        I can agree somewhat

  38. Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

    Hey, Miss Molly !

    LovelyBird , that Lauryn Hill album is my all time favorite LP EVER! You should also check out The Fugees album out called “The Score” . Thats where Lauryn Hill killed that cover of “Killing My Softly” . Also, Solange is a VERY great writer. Her music is cool. If you haven’t already… Listen to this…

    I’m sorry what tea? The only tea that thot needs to be brewing is some green tea to get those vocal chords of CHERYL in order.

    She sounds like she’s chocking on Ashley Cole’s d***. The thot can’t even sh!t away from the X Factor stage anyway, she knows her career is as dead as her failed marriage without it.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

      #DEATH a 3 year old has more octave than that hooker

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        Remember when you said my fave sounds like she has rocks in her throat? It’s ironic because your fave has boulders in hers from all those years 6 feet under.

        The funny thing is if she could she would still sound better than Cheryl being 6 feet under

  40. LB November 5, 2014

    Yassss @Stephy, giving me all sorts of life. I wish Miss Lauryn Hill released more material, her artistry>>>

  41. CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

    No b**** the tea that YOU need to be worried about is your a$$ clinging to rihanna while your other faves sell 10k first week after performing on MY FAVES show. My fave is doing very well, thank you.

  42. LB November 5, 2014

    Very well? You were bragging about a gold status, what is that again? 100K? Jessie J just had a global hit, and so is Rihanna THOToreo, why can’t Cheryl….oh wait that’s right, you need two octave cap to make it to their airwaves everywhere else.

  43. LB November 5, 2014

    @Mark111

    Speaking of Fistopher Brown, his only good album was the one written for him, Graffiti, the rest is garbage.

    Plus has anybody listened to Bow wow’s man Omarion’s 21 album? It is kind of decent.

    • coolness November 5, 2014

      Yeah 21 was good for what it was. I remember back then when Omarion, Mario and Chris Brown all dropped albums around that ’06 to ’07 period and they had everyone picking and choosing who was the best, lmao!

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Fist only solid album is FAME and his self titled. 21? That was in 2006 and that year was all about FS/LS! lol

  44. CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

    Jessie J just sold 30k worldwide AFTER that global hit (feature) you’re clinging to. And AFTER performing on my faves show. So sit your a$$ down with those tired reads. My fave just got another gold single and the UK female RECORD. All those UK girls you absurdly cling to, who are now flopping, could never. Stick to rih b****.

  45. coolness November 5, 2014

    Congrats to her!!! I don’t listen to her music but this girl has remained consistent with her output and she appeals to a wide demographic. I know the Britney fans were clutching their pearls at the thought of Taylor breaking her highest first-week sales for a female record but I guess they can breathe now, lol.

  46. Yonce November 5, 2014

    Bey sold a million first week with no promo or first single Taylor did and Bey didn’t cheat by selling hers for 0.99c

  47. BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

    @cherylsoldier yawn at that tired death joke we get it shes dead and she still slays one octave cole from the grave and you always come for 2 out of 3 of my favs ol scary ass bitttttch

    • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

      No b**** it’s just ironic that you continually try my fave like that. And are absolutely obsessed with me.

      • BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

        your so sensitive everybody literally comes for everybody favs on this blog and I actually like Cheryl/you

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        Keep it cute then. You’re becoming a mark666 to me

  48. LB November 5, 2014

    Count the octaves babe, how many of those notes can Cheryl duck, dodge, skip, slide, play hide and seek, slide, tumble and fall off?
    http://youtu.be/yDEszMrtqI0

  49. LB November 5, 2014

    Aaliyah belting like the singer she is, when will CHERYL? When will Cheryl be invited to destroy the machinery with her one octave at the Oscars?
    http://youtu.be/RGMNziGuMXk

  50. Dante November 5, 2014

    She came SO CLOSE to topping britneys record.

  51. CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

    Why are you clinging to aaliyah now? When will rihanna be on the Oscar stage? And the octave drag is so boring when most of those “singers” don’t have any of my faves success. It’s ironic too because your fave has 2 octaves max.

  52. CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

    Can you tell me why jessie j sold less than a 4 month old Ed sheeran album w her impressive vocals? I’ll wait.

  53. LB November 5, 2014

    @Stephy,

    I have a lot of Madonna music actually, one of my fav albums in my collection are THE Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Rated R, Unapologetic, Ray of Light, Our version of events, Rhythm Nation and many others.

    One of my fav Madonna songs are Human nature, hollywood, vogue, like a prayer, masterpiece, beautiful stranger and many others.

    It’s not that I don’t like Madonna, it’s that I criticize her for certain things and praise her for others. I’m indifferent on her in general.

  54. LB November 5, 2014

    @coolness

    LMAO I’ve only ever listened to a few songs from MARIO.

    Remember when Jeremih got replaced by Trey Songz?

  55. Bella3 November 5, 2014

    I’m so proud of her she worked really hard. In fact she’s one of the hardest working artist out. I’m over people saying she only sells so much because she white? Great Amazing Black R&B or acts with R&B roots can sell just like her ( i.e Beyonce) All they have to do is stop waiting for there record labels to give them money & use there own. Miguel now has over 1million he could use that and pay the 200k it takes to perform on the voice or DancingWithTheStars or any of the other competition shows that get more rating then award show. If Artist like Luke James or Even Frank Ocean ( who’s already big but could be bigger) did like 10 or 12 different things like Taylor does the week there album drops & use there own money & risk everything to do it we would be looking a different world.

    • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

      Aaliyah certainly won’t again

      • Mark111 November 5, 2014

        And Cole Sore won’t EVER. lol

      • CherylSoldierr November 5, 2014

        Speculation vs fact. That’s why you’re a navi LOL

    • BeyRihLiyah November 5, 2014

      one of my favorites performances she always shined when she did pop ballads like journey to the past and the one I gave my heart to

  56. Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

    Madonna has THE best POP catalog of all time imo… My only problem with her is… Those LIVE vocals & “dance” moves. She is TERRIBLE live to me. But, her catalog>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  57. LB November 5, 2014

    Hyrbid Theory though>>>>>>>

    And not when everybody started hating Nickelback, apparently all their music sounds the same.

    Whatever happened to Limp Bizkit though?

    • Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

      LOVE THIS!

  58. Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

    OMG! C-Error in that bathroom “singing” vidoe! LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO asdfasdjfahsldfjasdf

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Oh were the 90’s full of them. Poor Tevin, he’s prob the best male vocalist ever.

      • LB November 5, 2014

        Ya, Tevin Campbell could belt, his vocals>>>>

  59. CATFISH CAREY November 5, 2014

    Loose bottom? Girl u Still haven’t figured out what to do with yo life? Spending these wastes hours on here. Girl we gon start a petition to get you employed!

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      2001, but great album!

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Yea, but this was mid late 90’s and singers were more smooth and light. Even Whitney and MC switched to a softer tone. The girl could sang, but there were so many at this time like Kelly Price, Chante, hell pretty much all these now reality stars has beens were doing the same and all were overlooked and forgotten.

      • LB November 5, 2014

        SCREAMING at reality star has beens

    • TheElusiveLamb November 5, 2014

      OMG Tamia! She is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met in my life! I love her. She’s my third favorite vocalist ever.

    • TheElusiveLamb November 6, 2014

      I remember them so vividly. Mariah wrote that other song for them. They were so beautiful.

  61. LB November 5, 2014

    The 90s had such great music, and I’ve only been posting the RnB music, if we weren’t into other genres, we might be here all night.

  62. OMG Logic!!! November 5, 2014

    McDonald’s said it best. Billions and billions served. Taylor Swift millions and millions sold. Doesn’t stop her music from being utter trash.

  63. Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

    YASSSS LoveBird! The ONE HIT WONDERS of the 90s was >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  64. Arianator Barb November 5, 2014

    all i’m gonna say is Mariah has the real shake it off and it’s 1000x better than that godawful POS this bitchh got on the radio

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      And when sitting in a chair to sing meant business!

    • Mark111 November 5, 2014

      Favorite song by her! And see, this was the era when everyone was laid back with smooth, soft vocals.

      • TheElusiveLamb November 5, 2014

        That’s very true. After the work Timbaland & Missy did on Ginuwine & Aaliyah albums (Batchelor and One in a Million), music was bound to either sound like Darkchild (The Boy Is Mine/ MJB Share My World) or Breakdown and the other hip-pop duets that would explode by 2001-2003

    • LB November 5, 2014

      YASSSSSSS I still listen to this song till today.

  65. Stephy Tha Lambily November 5, 2014

    Luther & Whitney were the greatest MALE & FEMALE singers of all time imo!

  66. LB November 5, 2014

    When Freddie Prince Jr was in all the teen comedy/drama movies

  67. Slay_Hive November 5, 2014

    Congrats to Taylor, but I still think her music is corny and she’s a horrible singer.

    • LB November 6, 2014

      SCREAMING!!!!

    • Mark111 November 6, 2014

      LAWD! Even the 90’s had it crappy songs, lol.

      • LB November 6, 2014

        LMAO

  68. LB November 6, 2014

    LMAO @Mark111 this is why I always giggle when people say the 90s only had good music. It had good music but it also had its crappy music, it’s just that there was a much wider selection to pick from. Something for everybody.

    http://youtu.be/ZyhrYis509A

    • Mark111 November 6, 2014

      Yep, I always tell people, every genre and decade had/has it’s crap, but we only remember the good ones.

    • LB November 6, 2014

      LMAO SSTTTAAAHHHHPPPPPP!!!!!

    • LB November 6, 2014

      YYYYAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Not me forgetting about Incubus though

    • Mark111 November 6, 2014

      And when I was afraid to buy the album because I was scard that she was another one hit wonder of the summer, lol. But I took a chance and ever looked back, thanks to You Don’t Love Me and Thug in My Life.

    • Mark111 November 6, 2014

      SHADE!

    • Mark111 November 6, 2014

      summer of 2004.

    • TheElusiveLamb November 6, 2014

      LMAO! You’re so shady. I actually forgot about that though.

    • Mark111 November 6, 2014

      My HEART!!!!! Call 911!

    • Mark111 November 6, 2014

      I thought I WAS Sisqo back then, lol.

    • LB November 6, 2014

      AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH They way I LOL’ed when this first came out, I couldn’t handle it. Watching this back though, I’ve just noticed how sub-par his dancing is

      I like his cry me a river song though.

    • LB November 6, 2014

      NOT TYPE 1 OMG I’M DYING

  69. LB November 6, 2014

    It’s been fun reliving the 90s early 2000 with everyone but imma call it a night.

  70. JOHNVIDAL November 6, 2014

    So unfair! I guess her team has been one of the brightest ever along with the one that made the first part of Britney Spears career so successful. They just need to find the way to appeal to white teenagers offering a supposedly clean image and voila! LOL
    Why can´t this be happening to the hugely talented artists? (of course they would need the crazy support, which is not happening). Sad times. At least we had the tremedous phenomenon of Adele recently, who even though no Prince, is 10 times more talented than these basic girls.

  71. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! November 6, 2014

    wow:) It feels so good to be a Taylor swift fan right now!

  72. N November 6, 2014

    Its kinda false to say that she sold so much when the album is hugely discounted. If the album is selling @ $0.99 and just sold that amount it’s kinda bitter-sweet. BUT, we have to wait and see what goes on as the days progress. What I’ve seen from Britney Spears era is that the record label build a brand and not necessarily an artist. In that, they get your attention first, with some catchy music, then they keep your attention by ensuring that they are always visible by: seeking lucrative advertisements deals, getting them on all the prestigious award shows, tv shows, +/- movies, etc. Thus they are in your face so much that they grab your attention and eventually you are captured and eventually you direct your friends and family to them. Face it: 1. the music industry is not abut music, they have an agenda. 2.Many people are bandwagonists and they will stick to who is on top. ONLY a very very few will defy the odds. Why do so any artists do the same things ( they dress the same way, song the same way) but some are successful?????

  73. Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 6, 2014

    I guess the hive stayed away because everyone would have dragged Beyoncé. Lol now they can’t use the sold a million in ten days anymore lmfao

    • Revolution November 6, 2014

      Why would everyone have dragged Beyonce? Her and Taylor are the only females doing these numbers. Because it sure as hell isnt Rihanna. She takes a whole year to sell what they sell in a week.

  74. BOOBIE November 6, 2014

    She can’t be stopped!!!

  75. rihannanavy November 7, 2014

    Taylor just slayed Beyonce.
    Taylor 1.3 million
    Beyonce 616,000
    Beyonce is over
