Taylor Swift’s “Midnights” album is the singer’s fifth album to sell over one million units in its first week, a new record.
The album enters with the chart with 1.578 million album equivalent units in the U.S. — the largest week for any album in nearly seven years.
The last album to achieve larger first-week sales was Adele’s “25”, which debuted with 3.482 million units in December of 2015.
Swift is now tied with Barbra Streisand as the female artist with the most No. 1 albums in the chart’s history.
She’s the sixth act with over 10 No. 1 albums on the chart, joining the Beatles (19), Jay-Z (14), and Drake, Bruce Springsteen, and Streisand (all with 11).
Swift’s 13-track album, officially released on Oct. 21, is already the year’s top-selling album by overall sales; she beats her own record for the largest sales week for an album since her own “Reputation” debuted in 2017.
