Her new album might be called ‘Red’ but Taylor Swift’s bank account is going to be seeing a lot of green! The 22-year-old sold 1.2 million copies of her latest album in its first week – the largest sales week for any album in a decade.
Nielsen SoundScan confirmed the blockbuster sales on Tuesday night. “Red” marks Swift’s second straight album to sell more than 1 million copies in its first week; “Speak Now,” her third album, sold a little over 1 million copies when it was released in 2010. She is the only woman to have two albums sell more than 1 million copies in its first week.
