“Speak Now” Holds #1 Spot on Billboard 200!

Taylor’s new album “Speak Now” holds on to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week by selling 77,000 copies! This also makes it the first #1 album of 2011! Congratulations to Taylor and thanks to all the fans who bought the album!

Taylor Swift’s Speak Now topped the Billboard 200 this week for a fifth week, holding on to the #1 spot with 77,000 in sales.

That’s a 72% drop – numbers were down across the board as the Christmas season officially ended. Also gone are the Chirstmas-themed albums that had populated the Top 10 for the last several weeks. Susan Boyle’s The Gift, for instance, drops from #2 to #39.

No new albums debuted in the Top 10 this week, though both Daft Punk’s TRON: Legacy and Mumford & Sons’ Sigh No More reached new chart peaks at #6 & #8.
