The Final Numbers Are In! Taylor Swift Powers Past 1 Million Mark

Published: Friday 17th Nov 2017 by Sam

Taylor Swift is a cert for #1 on the next edition of the Billboard 200 with new album ‘Reputation’. But that much was always a given.

The true story has also centered around how high she’d climb.

Indeed, sans an SNL performance, the Pop titan has staged a media blackout – shunning interviews and the “usual” stages.

And while that would have rendered most project’s dead on arrival, it’s had the opposite effect on sales of her LP.

See what we mean below…

Per Hits Daily Double, the final number for Swift with all units tallied is:

1.29 Million

This is almost entirely comprised of pure sales, given that the project is not available on streaming services. A small portion will still be attributable to streams considering that select songs are on the Spotify’s and Apple Music’s, as such will be counted to the overall album total.

Lookout for Rashad‘s upcoming Chart Check for further dissection of the digits and decimals.

In the meanwhile, though, what are…

Your thoughts?

  2. Where is Adele to slay this mess? November 17, 2017

    I hope it goest down to 200K by the week after.

    • XYZ November 18, 2017

      And even if it does. 200k is still a shitload more than the overall sales of other artists.

      I am not a big, though I think the album is quite cute in some parts. But you have to admit that she is the Queen right now. I don’t get the appeal, but it is what it is

      • Adele4Life November 17, 2017

        When my fave comes back she will crush this AGAIN.

        But yea, only Adele & Taylor can still sell albums.

    None of our faves (I have many btw so shh..) can match or oversell Taylor and Adele’ sales….. which is sad!
    I would love to see someone like Jazmine Sullivan become our Adele and selling this many units but she BLACK and R&B. 2 “X’s” that won’t ever make her see that happening 🙁

    • XYZ November 18, 2017

      The thing is that whites buy their own s*** and still support music. Maybe blacks should start the same and get r&b back on top. Though r&b became a bit stale in the last years tbh

    Queen Taylor, when will your fav? Pure sale #LegendaryLane

  7. Suicide Blonde November 17, 2017

    Everybody is mad at her, she’s basic, she sells because she’s white, blah blah blah, well, I dislike her too but because she’s a mediocre artist but her sales are genuine, people buy her music, there’s no more to it, there are plenty of white artists who should be selling this much based on their talent alone but they don’t, so race has nothing to do with her sales, y’all buy Beyoncé’s albums but ignore Jazmine Sullivan’s releases, it’s simple, people are to blame for the lack of/or success of an artist’s project.

    • Stephy November 17, 2017

      I agree.

    • ? + ✈ = ? November 17, 2017

    • DanYiel Iman November 18, 2017

  8. Grammar Nazi November 17, 2017

    There’s no ‘of’ after ‘comprised’. It’s either ‘comprises’, ‘comprised’ or ‘comprising’.

    • Truth predictor November 18, 2017

  12. Kevon November 18, 2017

    Black people are always the first to come with race, and don’t say it’s not true.. every little thing happens it’s because we are black omg y’all try and get over that s*** … So Whitney Houston, puff daddy, Tina Turner,Donna summers they never used to sell ..I remember when the chart was all black people y’all ever used to complain around those times?? I guess not ..y’all just want black to be on top and then y’all with all crazy s*** to talk …oh we are the best no one can be better than our race …on please
