    Swift will get her fourth AOTY nomination due to popularity, not quality. She won’t win again. I wonder what her second week sales will be like.

    I have a feeling she’ll have a surprise performance at the AMAs which might further boost her sales in the second week.

    “Dive bar on the east side… where you at?..” I agree about “Delicate” – by far, my favorite track on the new Taylor Swift…

    “Is it cool that I said all that?”

    Still higher than most people’s first week sales probably.

    “Delicate”, “Call It What You Want”, and “Dress” stand out as the best on the album to me. “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” is good as well, and sounds like it’d be a hit. The entire album is better than I expected based upon the pre-released singles, which is good. Not as good as some of Swift’s previous albums by any means, but better than I believed it’d be.

    Hoping “Delicate” is the next single.

    “Call It What You Want” hit #1 on digital sales chart, it’s the 4th song from “reputation” to do this after the rest of the pre-release songs. She also passes Aretha Franklin as the second most hits for a woman on the 100 where it hit No.27.

    “reputation” has sold 925k as of Sunday afternoon with two and half days of sales.

    Something incredible happened today on Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy’s mother passed away last week and this was his first show back and he asked Taylor to come on because he knew she was in New York. She said yes and didn’t tell them what song she was going to sing.

    Jimmy opened the show with a story about how he and his mom would squeeze each other hands three times, and tell each other they loved them. Apparently he had never told that story to his staff or friends before.

    Taylor sang “New Years Day” which includes the line ‘Squeeze my have three times in the back of the taxi’. Apparently the entire audience was crying and Jimmy was genuinely moved by the song and ran over immediately after to give her a hug.

    So Reputation has turned out to be Swift’s least acclaimed album. Estimates have significantly dropped. (From a ~1.5million high end to a ~1.36milliom high end) I guess you really can’t count your chicks before they hatch. And with all the promo…????

    I’m waiting for second week sales since Swift has proved to be a non-factor so far in the streaming world.

    First, swifties told me she would outsell Adele (maybe in her wildest dreams), then her record label predicted 2M first week, what happened? Now she is clearly aiming to 1.3-1.4M and snatch Britney’s wig.

    Considering the magazines, the UPS deal, the no streaming/no individual tracks for sale on iTunes, the “buy as many albums and Taylor merchandise as you can” to get tour tickets since August, the two expensive music videos, four songs released, now she’s singing daily on every show, etc.

    All of that to end up selling almost the same as her previous albums, even if she sells more, she will be like “OMG I can’t believe I sold a lot”, after promoting the album like it was the second coming of Jesus. LMAO

    Sincerely, maybe that’s why most artists don’t copy her tactics, there’s so much money invested on Taylor’s promo. It’s effective, but is it efficient?

    It won’t sells as many albums as her previous albums. People are tired of her and her fake personality. Watch out the second and third week drops. Adele is still the Queen.

    I think so, because she doesn’t just have big 1st weeks, her albums sell more than most other artists in the US overall. In a decade where selling 1-2m is impressive, she hasn’t had an album sell below 4m yet. And her North American tours are hugely successful too. I guess they make the money back from touring? So the money invested would not just be for a million-selling first week, but for the era as a whole.

    Red and 1989 had heavy promotion too. She always treats her album releases as events, which is not a bad thing. Why’d you get bothered by someone effectively marketing her work? Her sales are impressive if you like her or not. Youtube might not pay a lot, but if you hit 1 billion views I’m pretty sure you get a decent amount of money back from it. She doesn’t have to pay to sing on TV svows. Fans pay extra for the magazines and merchandising so there’s only extra profit there, no loss. The UPS deal wouldn’t cost her any money either as they profit from collabing with a major star as well. She’s one of the few artists that probably actually still gets millions out of her album releases while others have to rely on touring for profit.
