Biggest Album Debut Since 2002!
Taylor Swift is the new queen of the charts, after her debut album “Red” sold 1.208 million units in it’s first week. Billboard says that’s the biggest debut for any artist since 2002, when Eminem dropped “The Eminem Show” and sold 1.322 million records in the first seven days.
Only 18 albums have sold more than one million copies in a week since SoundScan began tracking the numbers in 1991. The last hip-hop album to do so? Lil’ Wayne, when “Tha Carter III” broke the million mark in 2008.
