Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Continues To Stay Number One On Billboard Chart

Faith Castro
November 29, 2017

Only two more new albums, both country music releases, entered the Top 10 this week: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's first collaborative LP The Rest of Our Life opened at Number Two with 104,000 total copies, while Garth Brooks' archival box set The Anthology: Part I, The First Five Years debuted at Number Four with 53,000 physical-only sales. It also happens to be the first album by a woman to be at the top of the chart for over a week within the previous year and a half.

Just two weeks after Reputation became available to Swift's many fans, Rolling Stone magazine listed the singer among the likes of Lorde, Sam Smith, Kendrick Lamar, Kesha, and Harry Styles, all of whom were included on their list of the 50 Best Albums of 2017.

After only four days prior its release date, over 1.05 million copies of "Reputation" were sold worldwide. In turn, the album's SEA units are rather small: 10,000.

The sales for Swift's album have also been impressive.

Instead, Swift simply performed her new songs on The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live. The album is already one of the best selling of 2017 and sales don't seem to be slowing down at the moment. For Hill, the new set lands the diva her highest charting effort since her Fireflies set debuted at No. 1 on the August 20, 2005 list, and her best sales frame since that Christmas, when Fireflies sold 145,000 copies in the week ending December 25. (The album was released on November 14, and only available on CD and withheld from streaming services.) The five-CD archival effort was bundled with Brooks' new book about the first five years of his recording career.
