Taylor Swift's "folklore" exceeds global sales of 1.3 million in under 24 hours
In under 24 hours, Taylor Swift’s 5 Star album folklore sold over 1.3 million copies around the world.
The superstar's record also shattered “the global record for first-day album streams on Spotify by a female artist” with 80.6 million streams, and delivered “the most-streamed pop album on Apple Music in 24 hours” with 35.47M streams.
Additionally, folklore set the U.S. and Worldwide Amazon Music Indie/Alternative Streaming Record.
About her latest record, Swift said: “Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the “perfect” time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed.
“My gut telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty I can get on board with.”
The singer-songwriter's 16-song album was produced by herself, Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff, and features a musical collaboration with Bon Iver.
