Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ Soars With Brilliant Opening Week Number

Published: Sunday 1st Sep 2019 by David

Taylor Swift is on top.

Fantastic news below…

The entertainer has spent the last year cleansing her public image following toxic feuds with Katy Perry, Kanye West and Calvin Harris and launched her new album ‘Lover’ to celebrate her reinvention.

Today, she has learned that the public is celebrating with her.

Billboard reports…

Lover earned 867,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 29, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 679,000 were in album sales. Both figures are the largest registered for any album in a single week since Swift’s reputationdebuted with 1.238 million units in its first week, of which 1.216 million were in album sales (in the week ending Nov. 16, 2017).

 

‘Lover’ is the first of Taylor’s album to be released to streaming platform in the week of its release.

In the mood for good news?

The album is #1 in the United Kingdom.

    • stormiscomimg September 1, 2019

      Taylor hates these kind of comparisons (including with Beyoncé)!
      See You Need To Calm Down video and lyrics!

      “And we see you over there on the internet
      Comparing all the girls who are killing it,
      But we figured you out, we all know now
      We ALL GOT CROWNS
      You need to calm down”

    • Rosanna September 2, 2019

      • 🥤 Jasmine’s Orange Juice 🥤 September 2, 2019

    • HavanaONana September 2, 2019

      And yet…..Taylor still has no major talent just loyal fans!

    • Datredd23 September 1, 2019

      Rihanna multi billionaire remains unbothered she’s already conquered the music game Taylor will never see 14 numbers ones bye

      • JOHNVIDAL September 2, 2019

        Rihanna has not conquered a dammm thing and she has never been taken seriously by the industry. Anyone with a brain can see the differences in how artists are treated especially by their peers (real musicians and singers). Rihanna´s sales have never been like this. End of story. She´s not on that level of music power and has never been.

        PD: Taylor doesn´t deserve to be as big. It´s not about that.

      • 🥤 Jasmine’s Orange Juice 🥤 September 2, 2019

        Multi billion where? 🤔

    I can’t help but feel like y’all used “brilliant” in the wrong context…

    Only Woman With Six Albums to Sell at Least 500,000 Copies in a Single Week: With Lover’s sales debut of 679,000 copies sold, Swift becomes the first woman to have six different albums each sell at least 500,000 copies in a single week. (The only other act to do so is Eminem.) Swift previously managed the half-million one-week sales feat with the debut weeks of her last five full-length studio albums: reputation (1.216 million, in 2017), 1989 (1.287 million, 2014), Red (1.208 million, 2012), Speak Now (1.047 million, 2010) and Fearless (592,000; 2008). Swift also remains the only act to have four different albums each sell a million copies in a single week.

  11. Haterz Gon‘ Hate September 1, 2019

    She always sells well, but then again so do CROCS footwear, and does anyone who has taste in quality footwear buy CROCS? NO – but here’s the memo – they’re POPULAR just like Taylor. So go for her that her music is popular but not for people with taste.

    • Clarkson September 1, 2019

      Beyonce who makes “quality” music, how well does she sell? 900 copies in the UK

      Gurl sit down.
      Songs like lover, you need to calm down, are already turning into modern day classics.
