Release Date: 10/22/2012
Taylor Swift released four promo singles in just one month before the October 2012 release of her fourth album, Red. The biggest single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," sold 623,000 copies in its first week and gave Swift her first No. 1 single. That hype helped propel the LP to huge sales and 16 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Country Albums chart.
