Taylor Swift Breaks ‘1989’ Sales Record With ‘Taylor’s Version’ Debut – The Hollywood Reporter – TechVerdant


Taylor Swift has done it again.

Her new album 1989 (Taylor’s Version), a rerecording of her 1989 album, is now the top-selling album in America for 2023 in under one week. The album has topped the Billboard 200, along with the vinyl albums and streaming albums charts this week, with over 1.6 million units in the U.S. and over 3.5 million globally. The latter achievement makes her the first artist to score six No. 1 album debuts with over 1 million units sold in history.

1989 (Taylor’s Version) has now surpassed the 2014 first-week sales of 1989, making it the first Taylor Version to net a bigger debut than the original.

Swift’s latest earlier this week nabbed her the record for the most-streamed Spotify album in a single day, a title she previously held with her 2022 album Midnightswhich featured all new songs, including hits like “Anti-Hero,” “Karma” and “Bejeweled.”

1989 (Taylor’s Version) marks the singer-songwriter’s fourth rerelease of her earlier albums, following Scooter Braun acquiring Big Machine Records and taking control of her masters. She previously dropped Fearless (Taylor’s Version)Red (Taylor’s Version) and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). With each successive Taylor’s Version release, Swift has netted bigger debuts.

Her newest rerelease includes all songs from the original album, as well as five new vault tracks, which are “Is It Over Now?,” “Say Don’t Go,” “Now That We Don’t Talk,” “Suburban Legends” and “Slut!”

1989 was originally released in 2014 and included hit songs “Shake It Off,” “Bad Blood,” “Wildest Dreams,” “Blank Space” and “Style.”

Swift announced 1989 as the next Taylor’s Version during closing night of The Eras Tour in Los Angeles in August. Taylor Swift (2006) and Reputation (2017) are the two albums remaining from her catalog that have yet to get rerecorded versions.
