Taylor Swift Shatters Download Records [VIDEO]
Who would have ever thought that this girl would be doing as great as she had been? Well, you’d better believe it! To top off all of her accomplishments so far, she has recently shattered another sales record.
In a recent YouTube interactive web-chat that Swift had for fans, she debuted her new song ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’. It’s a single off of her upcoming album ‘Red’, which is set to be released in October.
‘Red’ will be her first album released in two years.
“For the last two years, I’ve been working on an album called Red,” Taylor said on her website. “I called it Red because of the tumultuous, crazy adventures in love and loss that it chronicles. In my mind, when you experience love that’s fast paced and out of control and mixes infatuation, jealousy, frustration, miscommunication, and all of those lovely emotions…in retrospect, it all looks red.”
During her first week of tracking sales for her new single, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ Taylor sold 623,000 digital downloads. This is the highest digital sales for a song performed by a female artist during a single tracking week. The impressive part is that it was the FIRST week out for the single. Fans didn’t take long to warm up to the single at all!
It’s safe to say that Taylor Swift has a very loyal fan base and it doesn’t hurt to be a genuinely good role model that parents don’t mind spending money on for their kids to enjoy.
