Taylor Swift BEGIN AGAIN Music Video + RED To Sell Over 1 Million In First Week!

Taylor Swift may become the first female artist in Nielsen SoundScan era (1991 to present) to have a pair of albums sell more than a million units in a single week, reports Billboard.

First-day sales for ‘Red’ 500,000+ including a record opening day sum at Target, as the mass-merchant scored exclusive rights to the album’s deluxe version which includes three additional songs and three remixes. According to sources, Target shifted more than 160,000 units.

Unit sales at the iTunes Music Store appears to have also been record-setting. The digital retailer reportedly accounted for nearly half of all units sold on ‘Red’s’ first day of availability. With that start, ‘Red’ should break the first-week iTunes sales mark, recently set by Mumford & Sons ‘Babel,’

Which moved roughly 390,000 units just three weeks ago. The projected first-day sales of ‘Red’ along with full-week estimates from industry prognosticators point to the set most likely surpassing the 1-million sales mark in its debut frame.

Only three acts have ever surpassed 1 million units in a sales frame with a pair of albums: Backstreet Boys (‘Millenium’ in 1999 and ‘Black & Blue’ in 2000), ‘N Sync (‘No Strings Attached’ in 2000 and ‘Celebrity’ in 2001) and Eminem (‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ in 2000 and ‘The Eminem Show’ in 2002).

    The article is about artists who have done it TWICE. Sold 1+ million albums in 1st week with TWO ALBUMS. Congrats to her. I’m just buying the songs I like off itunes though. I rarely like her whole albums.

    I like her but I have a feeling that one day her fans will grow up and realise that her songwriting skills are rather childish and if she reaches the age of 30 and is still writing about love from a 14 year olds perspective, no a lot of people will appeal to that. And I watched her time square performance, her voice is weak.

    Honestly, Taylor will be in this business for a long time and she deserves to be. She was actually having trouble with her in-ears and the sound on GMA but her performance on David Letterman that night was flawless.

    I always get the deluxe edition for the extra songs. I find myself usually liking the bonus songs & songs she releases for soundtracks, etc. more than her singles that they play on the radio. Got my copy last night. So excited to listen to it all the way through today!
