The Numbers Game: A Swift Million

I’m…speechless. Taylor Swift went from who? to plat in one week, well at least to the rest of the world that doesn’t rock Country Music. I guess we can’t give Kanye ALL the credit, her previous 2 releases went a domestic 10x plat total. Damn, maybe rappers need to start looking into that country market, they are buying a TON of albums over there. Weezy will still probably go gold while behind bars and Recovery doesn’t appear it will fall out of the top 10 any time soon. Trey jumps up 2 spots this week and everyone else slides a bit. There are a grip of Hip Hop debuts, no major commercial names, but there are some talented acts on the list as well.
