What seemed like an impossible feat in music in 2014 became another huge victory for Taylor Swift, who sold over one million copies of her fifth studio album 1989 in its first week of release. Not only is this Swift's third straight album to sell over a million copies upon its first week of release, but it's also the largest tally in week one since Eminem's 2002 album The Eminem Show sold over 1.3 millon copies. Moreover, The sales mark makes Swift's 1989 the highest-selling album of 2014, eleven months into the year. So yeah, this is a pretty big deal.
