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.
Taylor Swift, 1989 – No. 9 — The former No. 1 album — now in its 60th week on the chart — returns to the top 10 (rising 12-9) to snag a 55th nonconsecutive week in the region. The album lingered in the top 10 for its first 53 chart weeks. Since the Billboard 200 combined its mono and stereo albums charts in 1963 into one all-encompassing weekly albums chart, Swift is the only act to have earned more than one album with more than 50 weeks in the top 10, with both 1989 and Fearless (58 weeks in the top 10). The record for the most weeks in the top 10 during that span of time is held by The Sound of Music film soundtrack, with 109 weeks.
In other Swift news, her Fearless album surpasses 7 million in total U.S. sales, as it moved another 3,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 17 to bring its total to 7,001,000. The album, released in 2008, continues to rule as Swift’s biggest-selling effort.

From one Grammy winner to another: Taylor Swift donates $50,000 to the Seattle Symphony, inspired by its commission and performance of John Luther Adams’ award-winning “Become Ocean.”
On Thursday morning, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra announced an unexpected gift — $50,000 from country-pop superstar Taylor Swift. It was a present from one Grammy Award winner to another.
In a letter to music director Ludovic Morlot, Swift said she was inspired to donate by a recording of John Luther Adams’ Grammy-winning “Become Ocean,” which the Symphony commissioned, premiered at Benaroya Hall in 2013 and then performed at Carnegie Hall the following year as part of the Spring for Music Festival. The composition, Swift wrote, reminded her of going to her local symphony with her grandmother.
“I was thrilled to hear that Taylor was moved by ‘Become Ocean,’” Morlot said in a prepared statement. “This is a powerful piece with a unique soundscape.” The swelling, oceanic composition also won a 2014 Pulitzer Prize for music and was described by Alex Ross in the New Yorker as “magnificent” with “a sense of unwinding, of subsiding, of dissolution.”
Swift’s donation is earmarked for two Seattle Symphony programs: Link Up, a music-education program for elementary-school students — which sends teaching artists into classrooms for weekslong residencies — and its musicians’ pension fund. Link Up has an annual budget of $360,000.
