Taylor Swift New Album '1989' Breaks 1 Million in Sales for Recording Breaking Third Straight Albums
Taylor Swift's new album 1989 has only officially been released for a day and she is already on her way to one million record sales in her first week according to Billboard. She makes the first artist to sell over a million copies in 2014 and also becomes the first artist ever to pass one million first week record sales for three straight albums. Her previous two albums Speak Now (2010) and Red (2012) also passed the million mark in the first week.
If you buy Taylor's album 1989 at Target next week you'll get three bonus songs on the deluxe version, which is pretty great.

Taylor shared that the reason for the title was that it is her birth date (December 13, 1989) but also that she likes to have two years in between albums to see her growth in her Yahoo live interview with fans. She shared that her new album would be her first full on pop album and inspired from the music of the 80's that she has been listening to.
"I really loved the chances they were taking. I loved how bold it was," she said. "It was, apparently, a time of limitless potential. ... The idea of endless possibility was kind of a theme in the last year of my life."
In an era of low record sales in the music business, Taylor shows that big things (and sales) are still possible if all of the stars align.
