Nielsen released its mid-year music report on Thursday, showing a surge in streaming and a hefty bump in vinyl sales and making two things abundantly clear: Taylor Swift is unstoppable, and Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!” probably isn’t going anywhere.
For the period from Dec. 29, 2014 to June 28, 2015, Swift’s 1989 has been the top-selling and most consumed album, moving more than 2 million units. On top of that, four 1989 tracks were in the top 25, each selling more than 1 million units. The album took second, however, in digital album sales. (Drake’s If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late took the top spot.)
1989 also topped vinyl sales, which saw an overall 38 percent bump, with an impressive 33,500 vinyls sold. Sufjan Stevens’ Carrie & Lowell was close behind with 31,700 vinyl sales. (CDs, naturally, didn’t have as much luck, seeing a 10 percent drop in sales.)
Swift didn’t fare as well on the digital songs chart, where “Uptown Funk!” dominated. In addition to leading online streams, the infectious track was also the most-played radio song.
A behind the scenes video for the Bad Blood music video has been released! The Foundry, the team responsible for the visual effects in the music video, released it to show how they accomplished the amazing effects in a short time span. You can watch the video by clicking below!
Taylor Swift receives a gold certification for her “Wildest Dreams.” “Style,” meanwhile, goes double platinum.
A fifth track from Taylor Swift’s “1989” has officially earned a certification under the RIAA’s Digital Singles program.
Following in the footsteps of official singles “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space,” “Style” and “Bad Blood,” Taylor Swift’s “1989” album track “Wildest Dreams” has received a gold certification from the RIAA.
Issued June 30, the gold certification confirms a unit total in excess of 500,000. A unit is equivalent to one paid download or 100 streams.
— In addition to scoring the gold certification for “Wildest Dreams,” Swift also earned a new award for her “Style.” The third single from “1989” is now a double-platinum digital single in the United States.
Previous singles “Shake it Off” and “Blank Space” are also multi-platinum. Current single “Bad Blood” is platinum.
Taylor played the second night of two sold out nights at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland today!

Check out photos from the show in the gallery, videos and reviews will be posted once they surface!
In 2005 Taylor Swift was still a blip on music’s radar: a country-singing teenager with a guitar—and possibly some teardrops—who was just getting noticed for her charismatic voice and talent for song-writing. Fast forward to a decade later and Swift is completing a year that proved to the music industry that she is a force to be reckoned with. With a platinum album, wildly popular world tour and industry clout that made even the seemingly all-powerful Apple change its tune, Swift’s place in music has gone from teen idol to undeniable power broker this past year.
And, as so often is the case, where there is power, there is money. Swift made $80 million between June 2014 and June 2015, making her one of the highest-paid musicians on this year’s Celebrity 100. Swift has her music to thank for most of her income: She is one of the few stars on our list to make in the double-digit millions for music sales—mostly of her 1989 album—and the accompanying world tour has also added millions to her income. Thanks to an enormous fan base, which stretches far past teenage girls, and social media following, Swift has landed lucrative endorsement deals with Keds, Sony and Diet Coke. Maybe this success is why Swift has no trouble shaking off the haters.
