Taylor Swift sets 'Reputation' tour dates

Taylor Swift's Reputation album sold 1.05 million copies in the USA over its first four days of release, according to initial sales reports to Nielsen Music.

She's barely uttered a word in public for 18 months, but Taylor Swift is still causing a ruckus on the charts. Because she's busy selling a million albums. In doing so, it became the fourth consecutive Swift album to sell over 1 million copies during its opening week.

To put that number in perspective, only five albums released in this decade have managed to break a million sales in one week: Adele's "25", Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" (2011) and Swift's own "Speak Now" (2010), "Red" (2012) and "1989" (2014).

This million-sales week does give Swift a leg up over Adele in one respect, though: Since Nielsen Music began electronically tracking music sales in 1991, Swift is now the sole artist to have four million-selling weeks. Now, the numbers are getting even more wild: As Billboard notes, initial sales reports say that Reputation has sold 1.05 million copies in the U.S. in just its first four days of release.

Swift announced the first round of USA dates for her "Reputation" tour on Monday morning. Her latest album Reputation is full of songs that are about, depending on the track and what theory you believe, Kanye West, Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston, and Joe Alwyn.
