Taylor Swift’s Recently Debuted Single Sets A New Record!
Last week Taylor Swift announced LIVE from Nashville via a special Livestream all the details about her new album, Red, set to drop in October (Read the complete recap!). At the conclusion of the live YouTube webchat, Swift debuted the first single off of her album, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together“, and moments later it was available to purchase through the usual digital channels.
No surprise here, but that single has officially set the record in for highest digital sales in a week for a song by a woman! As of August 19th, Taylor had sold 623,000 copies, and as a result debuted in the number one spot on Billboard‘s Digital Songs Chart.
If you’ve heard the song, then you know it’s not exactly (or at all) a country tune. But, she’s still a country singer, and I’m sure there will be more than a couple country music singles on the Red. I guess, we will see!
