Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Has Already Outsold Her Last Two Studio Albums
Taylor Swift has dominated everything that stands in her path with the immense success of her latest studio album, 1989, the highest selling album of 2014 — including her own previous albums.
According to Billboard, the “Shake It Off” songstress has gone and shimmied her way right past the sales of both 2010’s Speak Now and 2012’s Red in the five months since the album’s release on October 27.
The hard numbers, courtesy of Billboard:
1989 sold another 44,000 copies in the week ending March 8, according to Nielsen Music, lifting the title’s total sales to 4.505 million. 1989 already surpassed the sales of Swift’s last album, 2012’s Red (4.160 million after 124 weeks), a few weeks ago, while 1989 now jumps past her earlier album, 2010’s Speak Now(4.480 million after 228 weeks) in the latest tracking week.
Wow! Tay Tay’s reign is truly unstoppable, and she’s only just begun her fun in 2015: After dropping her latest single “Style,” the songstress will be heading out on the 1989 World Tour beginning in May in Tokyo.
