|Taylor Swift at eTalk in 2008|
It's official! Taylor Swift has never been hotter and despite the downward trending of Album Sales, the 20 year-old doesn't really appear to be feeling the pinch. Swift's third album Speak Now was released last Monday and Billboard Magazine has just confirmed that the album is expected to sell over a million copies in-time for Thursday's published Billboard Hot 200 Album Chart. This almost doubles her 2008 effort Fearless which sold just-under 600k copies in its first week.
The Magazine reports that since the Nielsen-Soundscan era began, only 16 albums have debuted with over a million albums sold. The last time this occured was back in 2005 when 50 Cent's The Massacre opened with over 1.5 million copies sold.
Above this, Swift will be in Toronto tomorrow to do a round of Press in support of Speak Now. Check back again for some photos of serial Celebrity-dating, Cupcake-loving, Guitar-playing, Grammy-winning Chart Topper.
