Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ Passes One Million in Sales

A million Taylor Swift buyers can’t be wrong.

With performances on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday night, “Reputation” has gone over a million in sales in just its fourth day on the market, with 1.5 million in its sights, according to reports from BuzzAngle, with about 2/3 of retailers reporting today.

That is, of course, without any streaming services, which Spotify’s Troy Carter has already criticized as encouraging piracy.

It is Swift’s fourth straight album with a million-selling week, and her largest sales week ever. Her previous album, “1989,” bowed with 1.29 million in October of 2014, according to Nielsen Music. Swift is already the only act to have three different albums sell a million copies in a week since 1991.

Reputation” is the year’s best-selling album, topping Ed Sheeran’s “Divide,” which has sold more than 900,000 copies. Yesterday, she also announced plans for her “Reputation” world stadium tour dates, starting May 8 next year in Arizona at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, with a May 19 date at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

“Reputation” will be the fifth chart-topping album of Swift’s career.
