Official: Taylor Swift's '1989' Debuts With 1.287 Million Sold In First Week
By Keith Caulfield | November 04, 2014

Swift earns the largest sales week for an album since 2002.

It’s official: Taylor Swift's 1989 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the largest sales week for an album since 2002.

1989 sold 1.287 million copies in the week ending Nov. 2, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

1989 is Swift’s fifth studio album and was released Oct. 27 through Big Machine Records. It's her fourth No. 1 album, following Red (in 2012), Speak Now (2010) and Fearless (2008).

Here are some of the achievements Swift has earned with the debut of 1989:

- The largest sales week for an album since June 2, 2002, when Eminem's The Eminem Show sold 1.322 million in its second chart week at No. 1. The album debuted atop the chart a week earlier, selling 285,000 copies after it was released on a Friday, giving the album only three days of sales in its chart bow.

- Swift is the only act to earn three million-selling weeks with an album. She also racked up million-selling weeks with the debuts of Red (1.208 million) and Speak Now (1.047 million). She was already the only woman to have two million-selling frames. (Her first two albums, 2008's Fearless and her 2006 self-titled debut, bowed with 592,000 and 39,000, respectively.)

- 1989 is immediately the biggest-selling album released in 2014, and the only one to sell a million in total, after only a week on sale. It jumps ahead of Coldplay's Ghost Stories, which has sold 745,000.

- Incredibly, after just one week on sale, 1989 is the second-largest-selling album of 2014, behind only the Frozen soundtrack. The latter has sold 3.2 million this year. (It was released in November 2013 and has sold 3.5 million cumulatively.) 1989 and Frozen are the only two albums to sell a million copies in 2014.

- 1989 is just the 19th album to sell a million copies in a week since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991. Of the last four million-selling weeks, which have all occurred since 2010, three of them are owned by Swift.

The rest of the new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, Nov. 5.
