    It had 1 nom which it eventually lost, its lead single didn’t even last 21 weeks and fell down the charts, and more than half of its sales are from the first two weeks but you do you boo.

    lmao the only thing you mentioned is the damn LWYMMD chart trajectory. LWYMMD was still a multiple week number one toppin the charts for three weeks so let’s add that to the accomplishments of reputation. You also forgot to mention the success of Delicate with was sleeper hit Went Number 1 on Pop radio and adult contemporary and a peak at number 12 on the hot 100. For an album that wasn’t heavily promoted she did what she needed to do in terms of sales. Whether you like it or not and whether she sold millions in the first week or in the course of a year the album is still certified platinum and therefore is a damn success. Are you also gonna tell me Lemonade is also a flop? Because I don’t remember any other moderate hit besides Formation which didn’t even go number one. Number ones mean absolutely nothing in this day an age of streaming just look at our shitty recyclable songs topping charts this year. Taylor is an album artist that has been consistent release after release. The hate this forum has for Taylor is hilarious, y’all love diminishing her accomplishments when yet y’all stan for lessors who can barely sell half a million a year into their records release. So you do you.

    Reputation was by no means a flop, it sold 4.5 million in the middle of the streaming era and had multiple strong hits. Plus it was included on several year end Best of 2020 lists. It will probably be the last album to get triple platinum with just pure sales unless Adele’s next album is a huge hit. Maybe by Taylor standards it was a flop, but not at all by anyone else’s standards.

    Calling reputation a flop is ridicoulus. It was literally the best selling album in 2018. It will probably be the last album in history to sell 1M+ copies first week. It had an iconic #1 lead single which also beat the Vevo record. It had a sleeper hit which dominated the radio for MONTHS. It literally had the biggest north american tour EVER and the third biggest female tour EVER with just 53 show and 100% attending in freaking STADIUMS. Most of the pop girls can’t even sell out arenas. The fact that you consider this a flop just shows how much Taylor is impactful and succesful.

    sis I think we not only snatched that idiotic troll’s wig, we ripped that bitche’s scalp with these receipts! Tay has goldderby so pressed!

    Not y’all calling me a hater when I’ve literally said Taylor Swift is one of the best pop songwriters alive.

    Take off your stan glasses. Even Taylor Swift dismisses Reputation as a failed project.

    When exactly did she do that?

    When she said she needed to make a better record.

    reputation was a misstep commercially but it was a cathartic album for her. It was necessary for her to have marked that period in her public perception in her music. It was something she needed to do. She couldn’t let it go unexplained. I don’t believe for one second that she ever expected that image change and tonal shift to translate to increased popularity, but by that point, she didn’t care.

    It by no means flopped but considering she came off the massive success of 1989, it failed to keep that momentum, though after the whole Kanye incident I’m not sure what she could have done to maintain her momentum. She is still incredibly successful and her touring numbers and album sales are pretty much untouchable, but I doubt reputation itself was the reason that happened.

    The reason why Reputation was less successful than 1989 commercially though has nothing to do with the album itself. It has to do with streaming. Nothing sells as well as albums like 1989, Red, Fearless, and Speak Now used to because people can just listen to albums on Spotify for free. 1989 came out when Spotify was just gaining traction and not super popular, so Taylor could afford to leave it off of streaming for a very long time. With Reputation, however, streaming was already super popular, so she could only leave it off for a couple of weeks before putting it on Spotify. That’s why Reputation made the majority of it’s sales in the first two weeks: people like me who didn’t want to wait, even though many did. Lover did even worse than Reputation in pure album sales because it debuted on streaming.

    Also, I can’t believe that one poster thinks Taylor herself believes Reputation isn’t failure just because she got one Grammy nomination. When Taylor said “I can do better”, that just means she trusts the Grammy’s opinions as a barometer of her quality, and, well, she thinks she can make a better album next time.
