This knsane I just woke up randomly to get a cup of water and then my phone buzzed like crazy with instagram notifications. What a beautiful pleasant surprise. This album will be glorious. I love this woman so much. She is here to make everyone’s 202 a little bit better.

This is insane! I’m actually amazed! A surprise album drop!
When I first saw this I thought it was a prank, but nope: it’s real. Between this and the Halo Infinite gameplay reveal this may just be one of the best days of 2020 yet.

US alone, maybe she can beat Juice Wrld’s Legends Never Die record on spotify
Im really conflicted on how she’ll do sale wise. For me it will either be slightly higher (800k-1.1m range) or slightly lower (670k-900k) than Lover. Although I feel like Taylor pulling anything less than 750k is unimaginable for me. I think lower because she relies a lot on pure sales and even though stores are opening up again, quarantine is going to hurt her, along with the fact that a lot of people are still unemployed/just getting their jobs back. And once a pop artist starts to decline in sales, it’s usually hard going back up from there. And has the new Billboard rule gone into affect yet? I think it might be higher because, I feel like her pre release singles/album cover turned a lot of people off from checking out Lover because they just weren’t good at all, but this album already looks like it sounds 10x than whatever ME! was. And it also looks like a slight return to the sound we expect/love from Taylor Swift. We’ll have to see though.

Agree. But i think she can beat Chromatica’s record as the most streamed female album in a single day this year (spotify)
Easily. She’ll surpass a lot of the 2020 records I think.
Folklore > MOTS: 7 for pure sales overall 2020
Folklore > Juice World for highest sales week
and probably some other ones I can’t think of

I am betting maximum 350k because there is no preorder this time and no TARGET edition.July 23, 2020 at 7:20 am #1203597452
Yeah I think she’ll be very lucky to pull 500K. There’s no strategic move from her to increase the sales except maybe for selling the 8 different deluxe editions.July 23, 2020 at 7:29 am #1203597464
I’m guessing 650kJuly 23, 2020 at 7:30 am #1203597468

I forgot to mention this and the lack of preorder but I agree this is more realistic. I was originally going to put 600k as the lowest for her, but the idea of her not even breaking that just feels so unnatural to me, I couldn’t even write it.

People in the subreddit are already talking about ordering 3-4 albums at a time, which I think might be normal for swift fans?. Sales will be through the roof, anyway.
Well, RIP LoverJuly 23, 2020 at 9:10 am #1203597653
I’m excited for this. Lover was, easily, her worst album. This one is promising.
