Taylor breaks another record with Red. The album sold over 1.2 million copies in its first week, which is bigger than any album sales in single week since The Eminem Show.
Congratulations Taylor and all the fans who have supported her!
It’s official: Taylor Swift’s “Red” sold a whopping 1.208 million copies last week in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan. That’s more than any album has sold in a single week since 2002, when Eminem’s “The Eminem Show” sold 1.322 million in its first full week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
“Red” also easily debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, scoring Swift her third chart-topper.
Impressively, “Red” was able to secure a million-selling week without any deep discount sale pricing.
