Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' sells a million copies in four days

Share

After Swift released her new album Reputation on Friday, November, 10, some fans wondered if she referred to Sheeran in the song "Dress". Per Billboard, the album sold 1.05 million copies in four days.

But the figure was less than half the monster sales for the debut of Adele's "25" album, which surpassed 2.43 million copies in the first four days of release in November 2015 and smashed a 15-year-old US record set by boy band NSync in 2000. The last record to do so was Adele's "25" in 2015.

While Swift's numbers are impressive, they are dwarfed by the biggest debut in music history: Adele's "25" sold 2.3 million copies in its first three days before ending its first week with 3.3 million copies sold in 2015.

This mega-success comes as a bit of a shock after Swift's first singles from Reputation were panned by critics.

Many are pointing the finger at Ed Sheeran, who in addition to being one of Tay's friends, also collaborated with the 27-year-old on her song End Game.

Full first week sales will be available next week, when "Reputation" will top the Billboard 200 album chart. Her Instagram account now features two lines of images showing positive comments from reviewers all written in that recognizable Reputation gothic print.

I say allegedly because the album is now not available to stream and I have not bought a CD in ages and if I were to buy a CD, which I wouldn't, I probably would not be out in these streets at Target copping a Taylor Swift album because people might judge me but more importantly it's not my proverbial cup of tea. And it's on the house.
