Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' sells a million copies in four days

Taylor Swift

Ed Sheeran has responded to speculation that Taylor Swift's new song "Dress" was written about him. This belief was crystallized very early on: It was reported that after only an hour of being available on iTunes, the album sold over 800,000 copies.

- "Reputation" officially crossed the 1 million USA sales mark on Monday, its fourth day of release.

From the second it was announced, it was clear that Taylor Swift's Reputation was going to be a huge-selling album, for many obvious reasons that don't need explaining here.

But the figure was less than half the monster sales for the debut of Adele's "25" album, which surpassed 2.43 million copies in the first four days of release in November 2015 and smashed a 15-year-old USA record set by boy band NSync in 2000.

Swift announced the first round of US dates for her "Reputation" tour on Monday morning.

Swift also appeared on Monday's edition of "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" to play "Reputation" closer "New Year's Day".

Her previous opening week high came courtesy 2014's "1989", which sold 1.287 million U.S. copies in its first week. The singer's long-awaited sixth album arrived just before midnight and naturally it's been all the buzz.
