Taylor Swift entered a new music era with the release of her tenth studio album, “Midnights.” The album has already broken multiple major records since its release on October 21st. The release was so highly anticipated that it crashed Spotify the night it dropped.
DJ Akademiks reports that ‘Midnights” sold over 1.5 million copies in the first week. Swift is well on her way to outselling the likes of Drake, Bad Bunny, and Adele’s combined highest-selling first weeks. It’s assumed that Midnights’ sales figure will further increase in the coming days, as the tracking week ends on Thursday.
If Taylor Swift sells 1.5 mil first week… that would mean she would outsell Drake, Bad Bunny and Adele combined first week…. nah she’d be different.
She broke every streaming record in the first 2 days for an album lets see it continues til Thursday.
The singer first announced the album at the 2022 MTV VMAs after taking home video of the year. The album has been highly anticipated since then and has lived up to the expectations of Swifties. The album’s final sales number is expected to be announced on Sunday, October 30.
Swift has had multiple chart-topping successes this decade, and if Midnight debuts at number one on the Billboard 200, it will be Swift’s 11th. The singer is currently busy touring to promote “Midnights.” and this Friday she will stop by the BBC for The Graham Norton Show in the U.K.
