If history is any indication, Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' is in very good standing

Share

She's arguably one of the biggest artists of all time, but Taylor Swift has still been working on her "Reputation."


Her sixth studio album dropped at midnight on Nov. 10.


And it appears she's ready for whatever reactions may come her way.


Fans have been clamoring for this album ever since her socials went dark back in August, only to come alive a few days later with clips of a slithering snake.


Swift has had some pretty public rows with the likes of Katy...

and Calvin...


and Kanye...


but that snake was likely a response to Kim. Right?


Moving on, the lead single from Swift's new album, "Look What You Made Me Do," instantly shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.


(It might have been the first released, but it comes in a solid sixth on the track list.)

In its first 24 hours of release, it broke the streaming record on Spotify...


and the viewership record on YouTube. As of this writing, she's well on her way to having another song in the YouTube Billionaire's Top Ten. It'll likely be joining "Shake it Off" (2,432,195,340 views) and "Blank Space" (2,207,423,722 views) up in the music video stratosphere.

This new record is poised to be her most popular yet... and that's really saying something. In the last decade, first-week album sales have rarely hit the 1 million mark, except for Swift's. If history is any indication, and if her 85.6 million Twitter and 104 million Instagram followers have anything to say about it, "Reputation" will be her fourth album in a row to reach that first-week 1 million mark, following:

2014's "1989"
1.2 million units
Chart debut: No. 1


2012's "Red"
1.2 million units
Chart debut: No. 1


2010's "Speak Now"
1 million units
Chart debut: No. 1

UPDATE: So, yeah, it's going to sell a million copies. The first day sales numbers are in and 700,000 copies of "Reputation" have already been sold. That was just in its first 24 hours of release. And, that was just in the United States.

UPDATE: As of 11/3/17, 2pm EST, Billboard is reporting "Reputation" has sold over 925,000 copies.

And it's not ridiculous to think "Reputation" will have Swift adding some new shelving to her living room. Where else is she (maybe) going to put her eighth VMA?


Her 11th Grammy?


Her 20th AMA?


Her 22nd Billboard Music Award?

Or, her 26th Teen Choice Award?


From the looks of things, Swift's "Reputation" is in pretty good standing.
