Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ sells million copies in five days

A million Taylor Swift buyers can’t be wrong.

With performances on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday night, “Reputation” has gone over a million in sales in just its fifth day on the market, with 1.5 million in its sights, according to reports from BuzzAngle, with about 2.3 of retailers reporting today.

That is, of course, without any streaming services, which Spotify’s Troy Carter has already criticized as encouraging piracy.

It is Swift’s fourth straight album with a million-selling week, and her largest sales week ever. Her previous album, “1989,” bowed with 1.29 million in October of 2014, according to Nielsen Music. Swift is already the only act to have three different albums sell a million copies in a week since 1991.
