Taylor’s new album “Speak Now” has been certified triple platinum this week for shipping over 3 million copies since it’s release! How amazing is that? BIG congratulations to Taylor! She deserves this more than anyone and hopefully it will reach the 4 million mark soon! Here’s the press release:
There is still a market out there for albums. Just ask Taylor Swift. First her album Speak Now roared into stores in late October 2010 and sold more copies in one week than any album in the last five years. Now, after just seven weeks of release, the collection has been certified triple platinum by the RIAA for shipment of over three million copies. Now all three of Taylor Swift’s studio albums have gone triple platinum or beyond. Her self-titled debut is sitting on a quadruple platinum certification, and Fearless is leading with six times platinum certification. In addition, the single “Love Story” has sold over five million copies. Taylor Swift is now in a horse race for top selling album of the year with the also triple platinum certified Need You Now by Lady Antebellum.
