Taylor on the US Charts

Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 1:35 PM Popular Sticky

Taylor's amazing success on the US Billboard sales charts has far exceeded any other artist over the past 5 1/2 years.

From the longevity of Taylor Swift (2006) to the huge sales of Fearless (2008) and Speak Now (2010), there is no solo artist in US history who has matched Taylor in reaching # 1 album sales for their release year for her first two albums...will Speak Now eventually be her 3rd consecutive # 1 selling studio album?

........meanwhile, RED and 1989 have dominated US album sales for their release years!

*****************************************************************************************
May 2013 update

Taylor is # 1 for album sales of three studio albums based on their release year, and close enough to # 1 for Speak Now that she may eventually have four straight sales leaders.

The five years of # 1 albums by the Beatles, who released in the US after success in the UK, are Taylor's only competition for album sales success based on US Release Year. Whitney Houston's first album was # 1 but not her second, and other artists don't have a sales leader from their debut albums. Elvis Presley is the only solo artist besides Taylor with three career albums which were # 1 in their release year. Whitney Houston is credited with two sales leaders since she sang over half of the songs on The Bodyguard Soundtrack. Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, and Journey had the top selling album for two release years.

This list of US album sales by release year as of the week ending April 28, 2013:

    First # 1 Dance/Mix Show Airplay With 'Wildest Dreams'

    Thu, Nov 26, 2015 at 3:38 PM

    Taylor Swift Tallies First Dance/Mix Show Airplay No. 1 With 'Wildest Dreams'
    By Gordon Murray | November 24, 2015 6:44 PM EST



    Taylor Swift tops Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Dec. 5) for the first time with "Wildest Dreams" (4-1). It's her seventh hit and fifth top 10 on the list, dating to her first, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" (which reached No. 21 in 2012).

    "Dreams" has benefited on dance-focused airwaves from an officially-commissioned remix by DJ R3hab. Meanwhile, Swift has become a staple of dance/mix show radio of late, scoring five top 10s on the chart in a little more than a year. Since "Shake It Off" rose 13-8 on Oct. 18, 2014, Swift has, in fact, scored the most top 10s of any act: five. She ultimately took "Shake" to No. 6 and followed with "Blank Space" (No. 4), "Style" (No. 6) and "Bad Blood," featuring Kendrick Lamar (No. 5).

    HDD is predicting 1989 will be # 7 in US sales and SPS this week!

    TOP 15: ADELE AND
    HER CHALLENGERS

    Adele will spend a seventh week at #1 but falls proportionately this week with the rest of the market. This could open the door for a challenge from a number of upcoming releases, the first of which is Panic! at the Disco on 1/15. The band’s early forecast of 125-140k could give Panic the first #1 of 2016 from someone not named Adele. With only one new release in the Top 15, here’s how it looks at midweek.

    Adele, 25 (XL/Columbia) 150-170k album, 185-195k SPS
    Justin Bieber (Def Jam) 50-55k, 115-125k
    Chris Stapleton (Mercury Nashville) 30-35k, 35-40k
    *Rachel Platten (Columbia) 27-30k, 37-42k
    One Direction (SYCO/Columbia) 25-28k, 40-45k
    Coldplay (Parlophone) 17-20k, 21-24k

    Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 17-20k, 30-35k


    Chris Brown (RCA) 17-20k, 28-32k
    Adele, 21 (XL/Columbia) 17-20k, 21-24k
    John Williams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens OST (Walt Disney) 16-19k, 19-22k
    Luke Bryan (Capitol Nashville) 16-19k, 23-26k
    Twenty One Pilots (Fueled By Ramen) 16-19k, 30-35k
    The Weeknd (XO/Republic) 15-18k, 40-45k
    Now 56 (NOW/UMe) 14-17k
    Meghan Trainor (Epic) 14-17k, 24-27k
