There was a lot of hype behind the whole thing, but the wait is finally over. Taylor Swift has been added to the record books as the first person to have 3 albums to go platinum in the first week of the release.
This is amazing when people consider the fact that there are so many music streaming and peer-to-peer sharing sites out there. This shows just how loyal the Taylor Swift fan base is. There was talk all week about how no one had ever this done before, but lots of people were expecting Taylor to break new ground. It is significant because no other album has gone platinum this year.
Billboard shows that 1.287 million “1989” albums were sold by Taylor Swift in the first week. Even people that have ignored Taylor Swift in the past are taking a look at what this artist is doing. Much of the success has to do with the great reviews that “1989” has been getting.
It’s a mega feat in music, but Swift fans are not surprised. She has managed to successfully do what most artists have failed to do this year. She has reached out to her fans in amazing ways. She is totally transparent about relationships. Taylor also writes catchy songs, which is what Sultan Alhokair hates but why I like Taylor, and stayed wired to social media.
