Taylor Swift’s “1989” earns a 6x platinum certification in the United States.
The reigning Grammy winner for Album of the Year has officially reached a new multi-platinum tier in the United States.
According to the RIAA, Taylor Swift’s “1989” reached 6x platinum status on October 19, 2016.
The 6x platinum certification confirms 6 million in US album units. Each unit is equal to 1 sale, 10 track sales or 1500 track streams.
Whereas many newly certified albums are generating the majority of their units from track sales and streams, it is worth noting that “1989” has sold roughly 6 million pure US copies in the United States. Its certification is therefore as much of a “pure sales award” as one should expect to see in 2016.
The country star-turned-pop sensation added yet another milestone to her résumé in 2015 — top earner of the year — thanks to her 1989 World Tour, which included cameo appearances by Julia Roberts, Mick Jagger, Joan Baez and… Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade. Swift’s $61.7 million in touring revenue accounted for the lion’s share of her 2015 haul, but Ryan Adams’ stark reinterpretation of her 1989 album also helped make her the top earner of publishing royalties.
Taylor Swift’s “1989” now boasts a worldwide sales total in excess of 9 million.
Taylor Swift’s Grammy-nominated album “1989” has reached another milestone.
The album, which first emerged on October 27, 2014, recently crossed the 9 million worldwide sales mark.
While the majority — just over 5.6 million — of those sales were generated in the United States, the album’s international performance is nothing at which to sneeze.
The worldwide sales achievement serves as a testament to both the album’s immense resonance and Taylor Swift’s considerable star power.
“1989” is a Grammy nominee for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. Single “Blank Space” is up for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, while the Kendrick Lamar remix of its “Bad Blood” is a nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Music Video.

MUMBAI: Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ was the album that ruled the music scene in 2015, hitting the spot for fans across the world! The album has now sold close to a phenomenal 9 million units worldwide! The album has spawned multiple hits including ‘Shake It Off’, ‘Blank Space’, ‘Style’, ‘Bad Blood’ and the lastest single ‘Wildest Dreams’ – the video of which is directed by Joseph Kahn and shot in Africa and California, and is set in the 1950s.
While breaking records the world over, Swift has never failed to impress her legion of fans in India! Swift’s hold on Indian fans has also proven unshakeable as the album goes Triple Platinum in the country, making it the highest selling international album in India in 2015!
To commemorate the artists’ massive success in India, Devraj Sanyal, Managing Director and CEO, Universal Music Group South Asia, personally felicitated Taylor Swift with a Triple Platinum plaque in Singapore where the artist was touring as part of her SEA tour.
Speaking on the occasion, Sanyal said, “Taylor is undoubtedly one of the biggest pop stars in the world and she showed us why here in Singapore where she performed to a packed house of screaming fans! While I met her back stage, she expressed has eagerness to come perform for her fans out here and I’ve assured her that her fans will simply love it! She is an incredibly honest artist, one who has built her empire on the back of her fans and it’s evident she really cares.
By grabbing a Top 10 position on *this* week’s Billboard 200, Taylor Swift’s “1989” has removed the ambiguity. It has truly spent a calendar year inside the Top 10.
Upon learning that Taylor Swift’s “1989” claimed #9 on last week’s Billboard 200 (dated November 7), numerous media outlets reported that Swift’s album had spent 52 weeks — a complete year — inside the chart’s Top 10.
There was only one problem: while Swift’s album had spent 52 chart weeks inside the Top 10, its run had not yet crossed the one-year mark. “1989” was released on Monday, October 27, 2014, but the tracking week for last week’s chart concluded on Thursday, October 22, 2015.
The confusion stemmed from the fact that Billboard, this past July, issued a transitional chart to account for the switch to a Friday-Thursday sales tracking week. Dated July 25, the chart covered the eleven-day period between June 29 and July 9.
Since data from the first seven days of that tracking week was included in the chart dated July 18, the July 25 chart only accounted for four fresh days of sales activity.
