World-famous American singer Taylor Swift’s latest album ‘Midnights’ is running from record to record. Released on October 21, the album has already surpassed 1 million copies in the United States (US), making it the best seller of 2022 so far.
In addition, ‘Midnights’ broke the record for the most streams on the first day of an album’s release on Spotify, one of the most popular music platforms, and had the biggest sales week for an album since 2017. One-week record album sales were added to these records, which were achieved in only 3 sales days.
According to the first reports of Luminate, which provides data for the weekly charts of the music magazine Billboard published in many countries, especially the USA, the album sold more than 1.2 million albums in the USA during the first three days of its release.
Billboard reported that ‘Midnights’ sold more than 800,000 copies in the US on its first day alone, including stream, digital download, CD, vinyl and cassette sales. This year, the first week sales of Beyonce’s ‘Renaissance’ album were 332,000 and Bad Bunny’s ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ album was 274,000. ’30’, which Adele released in November 2021, sold 839 thousand albums in the first week of its release.
