Taylor Swift: #1 Album In America!

Taylor Swift: #1 Album In America!

Country superstar Taylor Swift has the #1 album in America, ya’ll!!!

The 18-year-old singer/songwriter’s sophomore effort, Fearless, sold 592,000 copies in the last week, the largest opening U.S. sales week in 2008 by a female artist and the fourth biggest overall, behind Lil Wayne, AC/DC and Coldplay.

Universal Music Group, the world’s biggest music company, also just has signed an international marketing and distribution deal with Taylor‘s label Big Machine Records.

“She is by some distance the biggest breakthrough for an American artist in America over the last year,” executive vice president of Universal Music Group International Max Hole tells Reuters. “I don’t really see her as a country artist. If you listen to the records and see her play live, she has much more in common with acts like Avril Lavigne and Miley Cyrus.”

Congrats, Taylor!!! You’re #1!!!

    What’s so ironic about the whole thing, is that the girl cannot sing live at all. Did you see/hear her on the CMAs the other night? She was awful!

  • Anto

    I love you taylor

    taylor rocks
    the best

    xoxo

  • Yellow Rose

    She is ALWAYS awful live. When she’s got the recording studio and dubbing, she does fine. Where her talent lies is in the writing and that is ALL.

  • ok

    Good for her, but I’m glad they are at least admitting that she is not a country artist. Never has been.

  • rachel

    yayy tay! the album is amazinggg.

  • ali

    congrats to taylor! i love the albummm =)

  • dee

    i agree with #11
    she doesn’t deserve it
    she has no talent
    dogs sing better than her

  • lisa

    i’ve heard her live, she sounded great.
    you can’t really get where she is on no talent at all
    good for her. the albums great.

  • annie

  • Cynthia

  • maaui

    because she was sick at the cmas that means she cant sing? i have heard her live, shes amazing.

  • Amanda

    She is not Country. She is a pop artist.

  • kATIE

  • tia

  • rii

    dood, taylor did not get #1 cuz ppl felt sorry for her. she probably has more fans than the jonas brothers. a lot of the jb fans are just girls who are very loud and obsessive. taylors first album did very well too, over 3 million sold. didnt she also get a grammy nod? does anyone else see the jobros gettin that?

    That’s great Jared, but you spelled “ya’ll” wrong! It’s the combining of the two words ‘you’ and ‘all’, so it would be “y’all”. Thanks for listening!

    just jared, why you are a Taylor’s wheedler? Taylor is pathetic… she just insults Joe Jonas with things that didn’t happen to increase her popularity…

    TAYLOR, YOU ARE SUCH A W.H.O.R.E, hope you fail, as always :)

  • kelsey

    i hate this stupid bitch

  • why would you compare her to miley? really?

  • new york

    congratulation taylor you deserve it because you work hard .music industry is not easy but you make it work. thank for the input on your realtionship i like that you stay true to yourself and didnt let joe change who you really are an honest person. i bought your album the same day it came out and i thought the songs were beautiful i like the poster with the cd that the dress is beautiful and you look fantastic you are tall just like models but you do look like a model even if you dont model you are really pretty.
    your performance was wonderful i like when artist make the production of the song come to live that takes talent hey and justin gaston look so hot as your prince charming. i loved when you change your dress and came out with the white one i was blown away by the performance you did great taylor. i like you put so much thought into your performance go taylor let them know who is the boss.
    love your music.

    no matter what brand of music , alive or recorded she is out selling every one in cd`s downloads and tour dates . she is one of the most giving people on earth (ask her band) the nicest personality and best of all the best role model for my grand kids .she is only getting what she worked for . check her out or go play with miley.
