the different ratios for free and premium streams explains that. free streams are only 1:600.

4 million sellers for Taylor is impressive.
I cant see any of her releases going forward repeating the success.

Look What You Made Me Do sold far better than I expected since it didn't feel like much of a hit, despite hitting #1.

I didn't know "Reputation" sold "that little amount of copies". Still great for an album that she didn't promote as much as the others.

Some impressive sales on both charts there.

1989 deserves to be her biggest selling album. One of the best pop eras of this last decade.

reputation deserved better but the wrong singles were released.

I wonder how much higher her 1989 era singles sales would have been had they never been taken off streaming? I suppose that forced some more actual sales though. Pleased that Blank Space is Top 3. wub.gif I wish Delicate had been a bigger success than that. cry.gif

How has streaming benefitted Love Story?

I’m quite surprised it’s a million seller biggrin.gif
