Taylor Swift's 1989 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the largest sales week for an album since 2002, and sold 1.287 million copies. It's her fourth No. 1 album, following Red (in 2012), Speak Now (2010) and Fearless (2008). Swift is the only act to earn three million-selling weeks with an album. She also racked up million-selling weeks with the debuts of Red (1.208 million) and Speak Now (1.047 million). 1989 is immediately the biggest-selling album released in 2014, and the only one to sell a million in total, after only a week on sale.
It jumps ahead of Sam Smith's In the Lonely Hour, which has sold 746,000. Incredibly, after just one week on sale, 1989 is the second-largest-selling album of 2014, behind only the Frozen soundtrack. The latter has sold 3.2 million this year. (It was released in November 2013 and has sold 3.5 million cumulatively.) 1989 and Frozen are the only two albums to sell a million copies in 2014. (What a sad state of affair)
The lead-off single Shake It Off debut at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 (rare feat!), stayed at No. 1 for 2 weeks, then got bumped off by another gigantic hit All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor (I enjoyed her performance on the American Country Music Award), which stayed at No. 1 for 8 weeks. During this time, Shake It Off was stuck at No. 2. This week, Shake It Off triumphantly returned to No. 1 again after 11 weeks on the chart. Wow, I dont think anybody is going to shake her off any time soon. Swift is the first act to crown the Artist 100, Hot 100 and Billboard 200 in the same week.
Taylor Swift makes history on the Billboard Hot 100, where her single "Blank Space" blasts from No. 13 to No. 1. As the song dethrones her prior smash, "Shake It Off," after four weeks atop the chart, Swift becomes the first woman in the Hot 100's 56-year history to succeed herself at the top spot. Shake It Off still holds onto No. 1 spot on the Adult Contemporary Chart.
After 3 weeks at Number 1, 1989 has sold over 2.1 million copies. Next week, it will be very likely dethroned by One Directions 4.
1989 by Taylor Swift is even better than Red even with the musical experimentation into having a more poppy/dance sound. I would most likely check out any music video that she releases from 1989. However, I would have to say that in addition to Shake it Off, I also enjoy the following songs the most on 1989: Blank Space, Style, Out Of The Woods, Wildest Dreams, This Love, I Know Places, and Clean.
