    selling album for 99 cents may have helped

  • TeamBella76

    Good for her but it sucks that she seems snobby friendly still but snobby lately.

  • DanielBobis

    The album is selling for 14 dollars. BYE.

  • mm366

    STILL don’t get why she’s remains categorized as Country. She’s not anymore than Kanye is! She’s straight up pop now and has been for awhile and yet she continues to incur the wrath of many country artists and their fans because she keeps being framed as such.

  • mm366

    Btw, I like her. She’s like the perfect white 20 something girl next door with nothing but time, talent and money and everybody loves her. She’s blond, slim, looks great in everything, walks the streets of NY alone or hangs out with other perfect white 20 something girls next door with ease. She’s a dream.

    Id rather buy an Enigma cd

    Truly outstanding success couldn’t happen to a nicer person.
    And 1989 great so that helps.

    That is beyond amazing.. No artist has even sold a million albums in 2014 besides one week …..

    Ahah Destroys Perry , who I think sold not even 300 thousand her first week , no pop act male or female can even her sales , digital or albums.

    She will be the only artist since Soundscan started taking records to have sold on 3 different albums over a million in one week.

  • smmy33

    Lol.. Losers always have to throw shade.. Even if they have to make it up….your thinking of some else.. Cause you can’t even get one song for 99c on Taylor Swift’s new album .

  • Von

    No one is stoping you.

  • Von

    It’s really crazy !!
    Tay Tay don’t mess around.

    CD sales digital & hard copies have been so bad this year, they were predicting Swift would sell at high end maybe 800 thousand but to go and match her Red album sales , the last time anyone sold a million albums in a week , she saving the music industry on her own.

    Can’t say how awesome it is that a 24 year old can write & produce her own album and have it sell 10 times in a week what any other group or sole artist has , even when she doing total different music.

    Got give her respect

  • Von

    What are whining about, this album is categorized as POP not country , and will be under POP at wards shows like the Grammy’s .

  • Von

    Love the coat , want it

  • mm366

    You might want to check the definition of whining. Btw, it’s “awards.”

  • Sim

    Funny, how you don’t address the fact your post is stupid since her latest album isn’t under country , instead be some spell police.

    And I’ m glad Swift’s skin colour is something you can tolerant … bet you would never reduce Beyonce to her skin colour.

    Ah and I agree with the other commenter you read like a RAC IST whinny BI T CH, no need to look up the word.

  • Charlie

    This is fantastic news. I think that Miss Swift and Beyoncè are the real queens of American music because they are the only female singers that can sell such figures, considering the crisis in the music industry.

  • smmy33

    Seriously, 99 cents was how Lady Gaga sold her album on Amazon 3 years ago, what does that have to do with Swift that has 80% her sales are from iTunes, Target and Walmart, selling 14 bucks.

    Taylor Swift 1989 isn’t even on Spotify

    Her fans will actually pay for her music.

    JJ should update this post . She surpassed 1.2 and now is gunning for all time best female artist first week sales Britney Spears O’ps I did it again , which sold 1.31 million in 00′

  • Sim

    FYI…Billboard doesn’t count albums sold for 99 cents after Lady Gaga stunt… A album has to be sold for 3.99 or higher for it to be considered a sale.

    Maybe next time when you making up b u l l s h i t out of jealousy you should have some ideas what you’re posting about.

  • Sim

    Beyonce’s all hype
    She has never in her career sold even close to million albums in her first week besides 1.2 million or doing it 3 times . Beyonce hasn’t had a # 1 hit in like a decade .

    She only had average album sales and even some bombs, her best selling album was last years video album and she sold 660 thousand first week , Taylor Swift did that in her first day.

    Beyonce’s is common , she is like every other pop chick out there parading around in glitter underwear and over sexualized lyrics , her last album should have been n17 is was so over the top sexualized .

  • mm366

    Spell police? I said “definition” of whining. I believe a nerve has been tapped to the point you aren’t even trying to read for comprehension. You might want to bring that down a notch if you want to tangle with me kid.
