Taylor Swift's '1989' Sells 1.287 Million In First Week

FUSE TV - Taylor Swift's '1989' Sells 1.287 Million In First Week

Update (11/5): She's done it! Billboard reports Taylor Swift sold a record 1.287 million copies in her first week. Other than exceeding the estimated 650,000 copies sold (according to Ms. Swift herself,) 1989 has made Tay Tay the only artist to release three million-selling albums in a week (Red sold 1.208 million and Speak Now ranked in 1.047 million). 1989 is also the highest grossing album of the year, surpassing Coldplay's Ghost Stories which totals at 745,000 sold. It's a Swift universe. We're just living in it.

Original Story: Need more proof of how massive Taylor Swift is? Take a look at the latest sales estimates for her new album. 

According to Billboard, the country-turned-pop star's 1989 LP is on course to sell more than a million copies by the end of the week. Should the prediction prove true—and Billboard adds that "forecasters are confident 1989 will cross the magic, one-million sales threshold"—it would make the "Shake It Off" singer the first act ever to produce three albums that sold more than a million in a week. 

Yes, you read that right: Swift has done this twice before following Speak Now (which sold 1.05 million copies its opening week in 2010) and Red (1.21 million in 2012).
