Taylor Swift Sold More Albums Than the Rest of the Top 200…Combined

As expected, Taylor Swift cruised to her fifth #1 on the Billboard 200. Her new album “Reputation” sold 1.24 million copies in its first week, and virtually all of that is traditional sales, because she did not make it available for streaming.

In fact, if you remove streaming from the equation, “Reputation” outsold the other 199 albums on the chart…combined. The rest of the chart accounts for a total of just 723,000 copies in album sales.

“Reputation” had the biggest sales week since 2015, when Adele put out “25” and it’s the 10th best sales week since 1991.

Here are this week’s Top 10 albums:

1. NEW: “Reputation,” Taylor Swift…1.24 million copies

2. “The Thrill of It All,” Sam Smith…66,000 copies

3. “Heartbreak on a Full Moon,” Chris Brown…51,000 copies

4. “Stoney,” Post Malone…39,000 copies

5. “Divide,” Ed Sheeran…just under 39,000 copies

6. “Without Warning,” 21 Savage, Offset, and Metro Boomin…37,000 copies

7. “Red Pill Blues,” Maroon 5…36,000 copies

8. NEW: “Synthesis,” Evanescence…34,000 copies
